The following quote is taken from 'Heart Advice, Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron'.
COMMUNICATION WITHOUT AGENDA
"If we really want to communicate, we have to give up knowing what to do.
When we come in with our agendas,
they only block us from seeing the person in front of us.
It's best to drop our five year plans
and accept the awkward sinking feeling
that we are entering a situation naked.
We don't know what will happen or what we'll do."
