An Open Mind

Calming our emotions and looking deeply, we can become aware of our feelings and of whatever misperceptions we might have that could prevent us from hearing and understanding the other person.

Are You Sure?

One of the deepest things we can learn is we should not be too sure of our own ideas. Don’t be fooled by your perceptions. Even if you are sure you are seeing clearly, check again. Keep an open mind. Be ready to let go of your views.

How Can I Help?

Sometimes you believe that you are doing something out of love and in the service of another person’s happiness. But if you do not act from a place of deep understanding of the other person, your actions may actually be making them suffer.
