The practice of silence and solitude. Listening.
Notice without judging
Following on last week's post on discerment, according to Barton, the next key is to "notice everything pertinent to the situation...without judging."
At a recent presentation, I also touched on how thinking / meditating is one of my favourite activities nowadays. Maybe I'm getting older. But when I meditate or think, I try and not pre-judge any outcome. Strangely enough, I've been getting what I feel are better insights!
Sometimes the insights are about relationships I need to work on, sometimes a different perspective on a passage I just read, sometimes new business / investment ideas!
I am still trying to do this so am no means perfect, but why not give it a try!
And allow Holy Spirit to speak to you in the still small voice...
