Respect The Privacy

Virginia 106

.

“We live, in fact,

in a world starved

for solitude, silence,

and private:

and therefore starved

for meditation and

true friendship.”

.

~ C.S. Lewis

.

With a friend, the quiet  time together

is as important as all of the time spent

discussing the trials and tribulations of life.

Meditation is listening and those friends who can

listen to each others silence are the best of friends,

two bodies whose souls become one.

Today, if you can’t keep the silence, laugh.

Friendship is respecting the privacy of a friend.

Friendship is a priceless gem

that is to be valued and protected.

Listening

“I remind myself

every morning:

Nothing I say this day

will teach me anything.

So if I’m going to learn,

I must do it by listening.”

.

~ Larry King

.

When I stop learning feed me to the fishes.

Happiness is learning something new every day.

Mother always said that if your mouth is moving

you cannot hear and you cannot learn.

Today, concentrate on using your mouth for smiling

and use your brain, not to think about

what you are going to say in response to

what someone is saying, but think about

what they are teaching you.

Happiness is learning to listen

and listening to learn.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
