Part of being a great communicator is mastering being a great listener.
At the beginning of our practice this morning, I took you on a path of tuning into the sounds around you. Maybe you heard your heater, fan, animals, or silence. Did your mind elaborate on any of this or even go on its own tangent?
In other words, what did you say to yourself?
"I hear a bird. I wonder what kind of bird it is. I need to remember to restock their food..."
"Bird (pause) Fan (pause) Heater (pause) ..."
Our mind's job is to direct us and it is not always for our highest good. This practice is an opportunity to get to know ourselves really well, begin to train our minds and allow space. Practice the pause.
Get really curious about the commentary that goes on in your own beautiful mind. Self-inquiry leads to self-transformation.
