Rural Water - Quarter 2, 2018 - 40

WISDOM AND DISCERNMENT?
PURPOSEFUL AND POSSIBLY CHALLENGING
DISCUSSIONS? IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE AS
COMMON AS ONCE IN YEARS GONE BY,
JUST LISTEN OR READ THE NEWS!
out someone because of their character,
reputation, knowledge or experience and
asks their input, it conveys an unspoken
compliment and trust. Most folks are
extremely willing to share their insight,
experience, wisdom and opinions. Let the
person talk, careful to listen, seek those
opportunities and be humble enough to
ask questions. Seeking good counsel
and asking for advice requires a level of
humility, some may call it vulnerability,
and doesn't necessarily mean we know
nothing of the subject-we may want
to learn, we respect the person, or wish
to validate our existing thoughts, etc.
Additionally, whether advice comes

through request or otherwise (we all know
those who too willingly seem to have all
the unsolicited answers-arrogant knowit-alls), we can choose to listen, consider
and maybe take something away from the
conversation there, too. We most always
have options, choices and decisions
regarding our mental attitude and what
we are willing to appreciate (or not) from
others. It may require setting personalities
aside or contemplation of poor counsel
and yet learning from someone else's
questionable advice. One can learn from a
wise person and one can also learn from
a fool, though it's best not to be the fool,
but the reward is not obtained unless

one knows how and is willing to ask
and listen. 
There are at least nine things that
prevent us from listening well: gossip,
judging, negativity, complaining, excuses,
exaggerations, lying, dogmatism and
arrogance. When seen in others, these
tend to stand out, in the way and hinder
our hearing. When we display them
in ourselves, we are simply unable to
hear well because of self. Where did
logical thinking, reasoning and common
sense hide? Wisdom and discernment?
Purposeful and possibly challenging
discussions? It doesn't seem to be as
common as once in years gone by, just
listen or read the news! In addition
to exercising and training a sharp and
functional mind, these rare and often
hidden things also have much to do with
and are influenced by the willingness
(read humbleness) and ability to listen and
clearly hear. Might we sincerely practice
and encourage others to strive to become
better listeners and to really hear and learn
from others. Might we search, find and
mine those gems of work and of life from
others regularly. ●
