How to Have a Conversation - Letting Go of Defenses

Where defensiveness is, there listening stops. Then one's consciousness is attuned not to what is taking place in reality, but to what the ego-self believes it needs in order to protect itself.

To listen, defensiveness must be let go of. To speak, the heart must be clear. Only in this way can one have a real conversation.

There is a path of healing involved in speaking. Listen to your own voice. Let your breath fill your voice and carry it.

If you find that you are not breathing, notice that, and begin to breathe more deeply.

If you find that you are not listening, notice that, and practice detaching from your defenses.

"I am safe. I am protected. I am not my fear." These are the ways of aligning with God's truth and your own truth.

Speak. Listen. Become one with the moment.
