LISTENING TO FIX
Most of you listen through a “fix it” filter when you listen to others. If a friend starts to tell you about some problem, you listen to it with intent to fix. If a pain develops in your shoulder, you tune in to it with intent to fix. What would happen if you let go of your “fix it” mentality for a little while? Would you fall apart? Probably not. Very likely you would fall together.
If you listened generously to others, you would not approach others as problems to be fixed but as open spaces of creative possibility. Perhaps then you would create a world in which much less needed to be fixed.
