Best Advice is to Listen


Each person is the wisest person he or she knows. We each have inside of us (or outside?) a little voice, wisdom, that knows what course to take, who we are, who we want to be in a situation. But this voice can get drowned out by our fears and mental chatter, and by the cacophony of the world so much that we can't hear our deeper selves. When we listen to one another, we are inviting another's inner wisdom to come to the surface, for the other person to think out loud so they can hear their own inner wisdom. We do not necessarily want to press our own wisdom on them, for it isn't theirs.
