Listening to a friend the other day I chose to hear him without placing judgments on what he was saying. I heard him without agreeing or disagreeing. I just listened. In the end, I felt much more respect for my friend as well as for myself. 
My contemplative practices of prayer and meditation have helped me to see where my mind tends to go. As a result I can make a conscious choice to love  instead of reacting with my ego.
