Listening to Understand that You Understand

How do you let someone know, to experience, to actually hear that you understand, when he's so sure that you're not listening that he can't stop beating out his message, pulling it in like staccato waves on racky sand. How can you calm his waters so that he stop himself from interrupting, so that he can breathe long enough to do what he's afraid that you are not -- to process the words you are saying. to understand?

A quote from Conversations With God
God said -
"I cannot tell you My Truth until you stop telling me yours"

This one quote meant more to me than anything else I read in the book. The book was brimming with wisdom in every page, though this one sentence was what stuck with me.
