We have to be still and listen when were confused. Someone may be angry but inside they're just hurting and don't know how to release their anxiety. Meditation comes to mind when one says be still and listen, but the fact is, we need to be still and listen through out each day.
Here's a painful ugly word that no likes except the master of chaos: misunderstood.
This one word is the very reason we should be still and listen. To be still means to not take immediate action until you've heard all there is to know about the situation, by listening you avoid causing more problems. This is not to pass judgment on others, we are weighing out right and wrong, so we can help each other.

Here is a word from someone who has experienced first hand and would like to share...
One thing I've learned in life;
is to be quiet and listen in those times when nothing comes out right and misunderstanding is happening. (If I talk during this time it seems a lot of negative feelings can arise, so it's best not to do this).
When I get that frustrated anxious feeling inside, I have to get quiet, relax, and change my mind about how I feel, to pierce Zen. Soon the pressure in my head goes away and I start to enjoy the day instead of feeling rushed.
When all I want to do is rest and I have to keep going, that's when I push through and choose what is most important by praying and asking God to help me have energy and wisdom. The day becomes brighter and joyful and more focused.
I wanted to share this so you can see how what J D said in the blog above can apply to our daily lives, this has helped me every time I do it. This also helps to improve our conversations with our family and others, by changing what we say to be more positive. Have a wonderful, blessed day! DRL Poore
- Feeling the Holy Spirit -
Lifted off the ground it seems
the power is so divine,
Holiness my vision sees
lost for words but I feel fine.
I feel a fire in my soul
an overwhelming feeling,
then my face begins to glow
a sense of spiritual healing .
Stronger than I this power inside
now learning how to use this guidance,
God's Spirit inside I cannot hide
for His glory and my radiance.
