Tell Me About It

Tell Me About It

            1.   We all know we can learn by being good listeners.

            2.   A key self-initiated way to listen is to ask a sincere

            3.   What do you sincerely want to know? How affirming it
                  is to the one who can provide the answer!

            4.   How about that associate, friend or relative you admire
                  so much? Have you asked her how she’s come into her 

            5.   Do so, and as you learn something you didn’t know
                  you’ll also discover you’ve strengthened your bond.

            6.   True masters are good in ways beyond their own

            7.   Your warm heart and well-formed question will light a
                  candle between you.


That thing you do so well—
about which you’re silent,
do you take it for granted?
I think not;
were I to ask,
you could speak
at length about it,
how you came
to learn and love it.
Isn’t that so?
You’re respected,
that’s clear, and
people are better off
for your efforts.
And so let us rejoice
in the gift.
But, come now,
tell me about it.
Still, there
will be secrets
even you don’t know.
