I sing in a large choir. When we’re warming up our voices, if we sound a bit out of sync, our choir director will say, “Listen more than you sing.” We’re invited to pay attention to our neighbors and the collective whole which will inform how we are singing and adding to that whole.

I think that is a good metaphor for many things.

Receive intentionally so you have enough energy to give.
Learn what is needed so you can add yourself in a focused way.
Be present with the collective so you are in touch with yourself.
