Wise Words

I saw this on Facebook yesterday
and it resonated with my heart.

All of my personal relationships deepen and strengthen 
when I remember to be curious about feelings instead of defensive.

When someone says: "You hurt me" - that's an invitation into her heart. 
When we respond with: "I'm sorry. I'm listening. Please tell me more" we get invited deeper.

Can you imagine how much racial equality, interfaith harmony, and our understanding around 
gender and sexual differences would increase if we could get curious 
about the pain of strangers instead of defensive? 

Stay curious about yourself and others. Everybody is so interesting.
