Q: How could appreciating other's internal dialogue, whatever fragments they allow you to see, cause you to be more mindfully present with them?
Have you ever met people who say whatever comes to their mind? There are no secrets, no internal monologue, no filter. Occasionally entertaining and at times a bit much.
Most of us think plenty of things we never say. If you could hear the internal thoughts of peers, clients, family and friends it might change the way you view and behave with them.
Having a mindful presence with others includes being aware that they too have unspoken motivations, fears, and goals. Approaching them from a point of discernment rather than judgment gives us more opportunity for understanding, a foundation of wisdom.
