We all crave attention from our loved ones.
Yet after you’ve heard all their stories, lived through many of the stories with them, and feel like you know exactly what they’ll say or how they’ll say it, it can be difficult to maintain purity of our attention. We start anticipating, assuming, and even selectively hearing.
Relationships thrive when we feel the other person is really listening to us, appreciating and understanding our feelings, and valuing us enough to give their undivided attention, without distraction from phones, television, or other people.
I invite you to observe how pure your attention is with your nearest and dearest…
Are you giving them the space to grow with your unconditional love as nourishment?
Are you truly being present, not focused on what you want to say back or on hearing what you think they are about to say?
As you intend to purify your attention, you will increase the health and love felt in your relationships and you will be giving a priceless gift.
