Exploring the soul and it's reaches.

Heart Song

with one comment

music of the heartWhen you prescribe advice to someone, do you truly listen to what the other person has to say? Do you listen to their heart songs? Do look into their soul and ask what has brought them to you? Do you stop long enough to care, or do you spout your words like shouting at the night sky? Like a child crying for attention do you flail about in your place? Do you speak with an empty heart?

What is good for one is not always good for all. And so perhaps if we truly cared, if we truly wanted to help another, we would listen. We would listen with an open heart, and an open mind. Sometimes the greatest help we can give is to not to give advice at all, but to truly listen.
