Wally, thank you for bringing us back to the question, “How can we listen to others who don’t share our views and yet be true to ourselves”.  For me listening does not mean we agree or disagree.  We listen.  I trust my beliefs enough to allow others to have their beliefs.  That does not mean mine are not right.  How was it said before, “I’m right and you’re right.”  It is not either/or, but both/and.  Now if in my listening and dialoguing I find a new way of seeing something and it works for me, that does not mean what I believed before is wrong.  I am evolving.  For me this is being true to myself to be open and explore and evolve.
