Listening is a Creative Force

Standard

Creative Force

“Part of doing something is listening. We are listening. To the sun. To the stars. To the wind.” 

― Madeleine L’Engle, Swiftly Tilting Planet

Karl A Menninger, psychiatrist, once said, “Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force.  The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward.  When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”

Listening is an act of life, of faith, of beauty, of hope.  It requires absolute mindfulness.

When we listen, we create.  It is our gift to our world.
