The secret to good listening is simple. Unless I’m willing to be changed by you, I’m not really listening.
– Alan Alda quoted in What MASH Taught Us in the New Yorker
Ask to be shown the way.
Ask to be shown what I need to see about this situation.
Ask for inner/outer support.
Ask for just what I can take.
Ask for an easy and deep process.
Ask for what needs to unravel to unravel.
Ask for a few easier days.
