Are there certain friends you turn to when you have a problem or need to be listened to? Think about this:
— Are they compassionate, understanding and nurturing?
— Are they totally present, giving you their undivided attention?
— Do they try to solve your problems for you or do they help you to get clarity so that you can solve your own problems?
— Do they let you talk until you’re done?
Chances are the people you turn to for support and understanding are good listeners. You can develop these qualities as well and take them even deeper into “essence understanding” through mastering deep heart listening.
