Giving of Tao

In many parts of the world this is a season of giving. If you wanted to give someone something I think one of the finest gifts is attention. To pay total attention to the person you are with. There is a feeling generated when you do this, it will be backed by almost total absence of thought. You absorb the other person totally. They become our momentary world’s focus. The content doesn’t matter, whether your talking or being silently together doesn’t matter. What counts is you are giving every bit of attention to the other.

It is the most rare of gifts due to the fact that we are all so caught up in our own drama that the only way to release it is to tell someone. But that’s not attention is it?

A friend of mine started doing this as a practice and wrote to me indicating that she realized that giving another your attention is also giving love. I like that.

Take care of you and all you love in these times.

  1. Agreed 👍 Being an attentive listener and a mirror of the love we each have inside of us is more important than ever before currently in our world as we travel this journey. Our world needs attention, nature, people and as much love as possible ❤ Peace my friend 🙏
