Listening

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Listening
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” ~ Stephen R. Covey

Imagine that spark caused to disappear: judgment of another based on how we look or the shade of our skin or on our level of education or on how we practice our spiritual aspects and paths (or don’t) or any other perceived separation.
