42 I Need You To Listen

Listen...

Take a moment,

Stand in my shoe

It will become clear

You will understand

It isn’t really such a tall demand

This is not a competition

You are not required to agree

Your consent is not necessary

You simply need to represent the person you say you are to me

My Companion,

My Lover,

My Friend,

My Confidant,

The one to...

Listen.

  5. To listen and really hear without being totally consumed with yourself if not much to ask of anyone whom professes to love another. God did not intend for relationships to be onesided or filled with selfcentered intention. He commands that we treat one another as we would ourselves, not to be full of ones self.
    Profound my friend. Full of truth. You are blessed with a great talent.

    God bless you and may your weekend be filled with His love and peace.

    1. You are right, it is not much to ask in theory, it is in practice where we sometimes falter.

  6. I just can’t get enough of your words. You have such a flare, wonderment and gift of use of them. This listening thing, I am trying to hear more. It is a daily struggle for me to kick the extra voices, that crowd my capacities, out of my head - - they don’t pay me any rent monies for their occupancies. LOL

    Peace & Love

  11. That was nice. And what resonated with me is the line "This is not a competition." And if we can understand that, I think it will not be so hard to learn how to listen.
