Seek to understand, not to be understood... This is a line I've seen floating around the past several months, and I've been meditating on it often. If we spend all our time and energy seeking to be understood, seeking to be seen and heard, then how in the world will we ever be able to hear and see and understand the "other"? We must seek to understand so we can begin to resolve our issues and create more intimacy and connection. Peace begins with you, right? So, don't wait for the other person to do it, just start doing it. You'll be amazed at the results. Practice curiosity and ask questions. Legitimately entertain their ideas and thoughts on the matter. No one has to be right or wrong--you don't even have to agree!--but you do need to actually listen. This practice opens up our worldview, in our closest relationships and in our interactions with complete strangers who have completely different systems of belief in place than we do. This practice dissolves division, and creates a container for mutual understanding and respect. It creates an atmosphere for LOVE.
Only one person has to implement this shift in perspective to make a huge difference. And if both parties are operating from this perspective, well then, by Goddess you are winning!
Today's writing was inspired by a piece from my Minishka Collection called Falcon Victorious. I could have written on a number of different topics this piece conjures up for me, but today, it was about standing up for peace. The falcon gives us that courage, that clarity of vision and broad perspective, to see the bigger picture, and act from that place.

Have you found yourself in a really difficult conversation lately with someone you love where you felt more disconnection rather than connection afterwards? Try re-visiting the conversation with them again when you are both not so heated, and share this quote, seek to understand, not to be understood (or this whole article), in hopes that you can both speak with that in mind. Hopefully, this exercise will help you forge new bonds and ways of relating that come from a place of more curiosity and wonder, and maybe even some laughter.
