“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand;
.
.
they listen with the intent to reply.”

.my two cents:

.
Mindfulness builds a space, a small duration of time, between the instant a thought coupled with an emotion appears and our reaction.
.
.
That means we have a choice to express this thought, this emotion, or choose to be present, empty, alive instead.
