Continuation of truth telling.

The Power of Telling the Truth is really something to witness, especially from a truth-teller's perspective! I now see that the truth-telling session I had yesterday has already begun preparing the soil for much needed changes here in the community where I am presently visiting. However, it was not my personal intention to cause any changes with others or their environment. My focus is on my truth. I present myself as a Son of Truth. It is truly a blessing for me to be able to tell the truth! I find that having a genuine listening audience (even just one) is most supportive of my truth telling process. (I can elaborate on this point, maybe later as needed.) If the telling of my truth blesses others then I will celebrate that! If the blessing is not immediately evident to others then I may contain my celebration and be empathetic during the other's process of accepting my truth.

I have just chosen to update this particular blog because of a particular line: "I find that having a genuine listening audience (even just one) is most supportive of my truth telling process."
I have a Design (Human Design) for listening. I can be and often have been a most attentive listener. I have given my best listening to most of the people whom I have close relationships with (including hundreds of "dyad sessions"). I am recently realizing that there are times when I need the same kind of attention from others (out side of dyad sessions).
After several visits with a family member (that totaled about 14 hours of my attentive listening) I made a request to have some attentive listening for myself. However, this particular family member admits that they "talk too much". Another way to identify this is to call it compulsive talking. I have consistently found the compulsion to talk (in this instance) has been to such an extent that it is a real challenge for me to say anything to this individual!
I do not have any power over another individual's behavior and so I am not willing to try to change someone else, no matter who they are, family or not. However, I can change my own behavior! The main hurdle that I needed to surmount was thinking (maybe assuming) that I can have a real two-way conversation with this family member. That thought and especially my emotional attachment to having a "conscious, co-creative communication" with this family member (not only in the present time frame but over the course of many years) has finally taught me to shift my focus onto what I can actually do and that is still inclusive of this family member. I have offered up my desire to communicate "to the higher power" and affirm my peace.
