In the listening projects, we begin with intention. If we:
- focus our efforts on tending to joy, happiness and acceptance in ourselves and others;
- practice not fueling our anger, hatred, and violence; and
- better attend to our judgments, negative stereotypes, fear, and ignorance by cultivating empathy through deep listening and mindful speaking,
we will be able to see people and situations with clear eyes. We will know what to do and what not to do to make a difficult situation better. This type of effort begins with intention. Such effort can change the world.
