My friend Monique Darling is a font of juicy wisdom. Lately, she has been plumbing the depths of her sweet soul and what has emerged has been nothing short of genius. Here is a recent posting she created for facebook.
“Last night I was asked how I am truly present with another. Here’s my recipe: Eyes connect, smile, speak, touch, feel the soul standing before you, remember the timeless bond you 2 have, listen to what they have to say, see them as they are right now, without expectation, share your own magnificence at 110%, & witness the divine reflection in this amazing being whom you have but this moment of true communion. Repeat.”
How do you truly commune with people in your life?
Are you present with them or just there in body while your mind is a million miles away or thinking about the bills to pay or dishes to do?
Do the people closest to you feel valued?
Do you recognize your own value, your own maginficence?
Imagine how your relationships would change if you lived in this way.
