LOVE/LISTEN…. LISTEN/LOVE

How well do you listen to yourself? To others?

Buddhist philosopher Thich Nhat Hahn says “to love means to listen. Listening is a very important practice. There is a voice calling us and it wants us to listen. It may be that our body is calling us and wants us to listen to our body. It may be our feelings that are calling us and want us to listen to them. It may be our perceptions are calling and want us to listen. It is very important for us to pay attention to the voice. The capacity of listening to ourselves is the foundation of the capacity of listening to others. The capacity to love others depends on the capacity of loving ourselves.”

How well do you practice self-love? How well do you feel you share your love with others?

Do you listen to yourself? Do you listen to those you love?
