We all know them. Some of us may be them. Those who are artists at listening. Super great at just knowing your faces and phases. They seem to pop out of nowhere saving you in the nick of time. For the listeners they can't explain in words how they did it nor even why they do it. It is just something that is an intrinsic part of them.
When you are the listener, you seldom ask why me. I doubt very much you even consider looking to see if the scales get balanced. The ability to sit and truly listen is a work of art. To sense the immediate need by another to be seen right then and there is a blessing to so many. Always feeling to them their value and ability to scale any difficulty helps to settle the world. Sensing the way through the trees into the open comes very naturally and you help them glide past the rough patches. Those who come to be heard leave refreshed and peaceful.
Without the Listeners this world would be chaotic and devoid of nurturing. So sometimes when you are being heard think how much the Listener could use an ear.
And Listener, sometimes your voice needs to be heard. xxoo
The Balance is set again.
Traveling on ....
