Listening in tears

Your stories help me feel what’s going on inside my heart. Your story about the whiny lady asking about meditation and what she will get from it made me cry. I prejudge people so often and your story made me realize that most people are doing their best and some people are hanging on by their fingertips. The story was a powerful teaching for me.
