We let so many things get in the way of us hearing each other – the need to be right, fear of change, our adversarial political systems.  These words of Pema Chodron inspire a way of being together and discovering new things about others and ourselves.

“Instead of making others right or wrong, or bottling up right and wrong in ourselves, there’s a middle way, a very powerful middle way…. Could we have no agenda when we walk into a room with another person, not know what to say, not make that person wrong or right? Could we see, hear, feel other people as they really are? It is powerful to practise this way…true communication can only happen in that open space”
