Taking time to listen can be difficult in modern life. We live in a very fast-paced world. When we move too fast, our experiences and interactions become superficial. Taking the time to listen moves us into a depth of understanding and a clarification of what is and isn’t important.
However, it is possible to move quickly and still be in a listening state. Pay attention to the difference between rushing and rhythm, flowing and pushing. It is possible to move quickly, but not be tense and be in a listening state – “make haste slowly.”
