Attentive to where I am standing

...For when I am attentive to where I am standing, I will also be attentive to where the other is standing, and only then will I be truly prepared to listen to them.

    1. It is, isn't it... But not always easy! Yet another reason why I need my spiritual director, who will often notice where I'm standing when I don't!

    2. Ouch...I know! Yes, they're more able to spot what I don't see, that by standing where I'm standing I could be jamming the signal between myself and the other. Good stuff but as you say, not always easy.
