BEING PRESENT

BEING PRESENT

When we are with someone the best possible gift we can give them is just TO BE PRESENT.  In such times we must be willing to set aside the tendency to share our own thoughts about anything and everything.  In most cases the other person is not interested in OUR life, our opinions, nor is seeking advice, but simply wants to share his/her concerns, ills, joys, plans, sorrows, etc.  JUST LISTEN!!!  This kind of listening is a wonderful way to get past that old ego which is ever wanting attention and to assert itself.
