If you are in the habit of listening to people, you’ll know the discipline it can take to remain centered in the primary stance of wholehearted presence and availability without succumbing to our own commentary, our desire to rescue or problem-solve, or even the subtle temptation to augment another’s ego. This discipline is Wisdom’s yoke. Wielded as a tool, it cannot be other than a tool for justice.
