Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to it creates us, makes us unfold and expand. When we listen to people there is an alternating current and this recharges us so that we never get tired of each other. We are constantly being recreated.

“This is such a wonderful thought that really gets to the source of why it is that I do this work. It inspires me because it totally understands that this is all about relationship, this is all about growth. This is really all about us being the best we can be and helping others do the same because when we listen we really do help others be the best that they can be. They are being recreated alongside us as we are being recreated.”
