What a great thing to put on our spiritual and psychological tool belt. When we are in great confusion or anxiety, and pouring out our frustration and anger to God, perhaps we should WAIT, and ask ourselves why are we talking. Perhaps we should be listening.
Perhaps we need to remember to WAIT when we are in a conversation with someone else, and we realize that we are not truly paying attention, but merely waiting for the other person to take a breath and thus allow us to jump in.
Maybe when we are upset with someone who has wronged us or disappointed us, we need to WAIT to hear their side of the story before making a judgment.
Could it be that you are one of those folks who can't stand silence and will ramble on about nothing rather than let quiet be a part of the situation?
The hope is, of course, that by talking less and listening more (or simply being quiet) we will hear what is truly essential - the sound of God's love, the Word made flesh, the beauty of God's creation, the beating of our own hearts.
