If you bring forth what is within you

“If you bring forth what is within you,
what is within you will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you,
what is within you will destroy you.”
~ as said by Jesus Christ – From the TED Talk by Leon Berg: “The Power of Listening: An Ancient Practice for Our Future.”

Discussion: The Therapeutic Power of Listening and Speaking

About a listening workout: speaking and listening from the heart.
