Listen!

One of the most rare but beautiful things in life is the ability to listen! Its not when youre nudging with your head while the other person is speaking, its not when youre already having thousand thoughts in your mind what to answer when she is finished. Its listening with the intent to understand! I find it hard but also so important and so fascinating when the other person is really with you with all their cells and moleculs! Its like, you can trust your whole being to that other person, or, you become as one. Its like, theres no need for the words anymore because sometimes presence, breathing and feeling the other’s soul is all that you need to really understand each other!
And oh, how much our bodies have to say, if we really listen!

What if.. ?

 

I think the best thing is just constantly imagine yourself being 80, sitting in a rocking chair and looking back on your life. Think about all the possibilities you are being presented each day and ask: “Would my 80-year old self would be happy with all this?” “Did I do everything what my soul craved for or did left something undone because of fear, circumstances, pain or somebody else?”
