Real listening

I thought this quote shared by Clare in the comments on the People for Others Blogpost about “Spiritual Direction” was very powerful! 

“Real listening is a kind of prayer, for as we listen, we penetrate through the human ego and hear the Spirit of God, which dwells in the heart of everyone. Real listening is a religious experience. Often, when I have listened deeply to another, I have the same sense of awe as when I have entered into a holy place and communed with the heart of being itself.”
