compassion in action: LISTEN.

October 27, 2013

 

listen

“We need to listen fully. It’s the basis of all compassionate action. We need to listen not only to the voice of the person who is hurting, but to her bare feet, the baby wrapped in her shawl, and the stars in the cold night. Such full listening helps us to hear who is calling and what we can do in response. When we listen for the truth of a moment, we know better what to do and what not to do, when to act and when not to act. We hear we are all here together, and we are all we’ve got.”
