Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Effective Listening. Let’s say the person I am sharing with is speaking about 125 words per - minute – my conscious is many times faster than that. I have time to go off on side-tracks. If I go off too far I will miss what the person is sharing. The simple solution is to ask myself question about what that person is sharing, that way I can stay focused on the speaker, not me. Father I listen to Your Holy Voice directing me in a way I can currently hear understand and follow. I can stay focused by turning my consciousness back to You Father, again by saying “our Father” when I go off on a side-track. I am implying my heart’s desire; to do and to be Your will, Father. I am grateful when I am able to be silent and still while I am listening for Your guidance, whatever You intend for me, here and now. I surrender to Your radical training Father; calling for me to embrace both the beauty and the beast, both as me and all others and loving and serving anyway. I am willing to accept whatever You give me, and pass it on. That beauty is reflected from within out into the world. It is about the spirit of our Loving Father radiating His Presence through each of us. A.A. gives us the tools to be the individual we were created as, allowing us to radiant the love we are. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
