To Dialogue

In this dialogue, two people are practicing how to dialogue. 

Socrates:  I hear silence.  I am teaching myself to stay calm.  Will you do the same!?

Michael:  Yes, I am practicing being present in the silence.

S:  While you are here, can you listen to me, engage with me in dialogue?

M:  It seems to me, that you are comfortable with silence, and love to engage in the student/teacher relationship.  I like to follow when it is a good practice and led when it is the same.

S:  Think?  How do you learn?

M:  I like to meditate and be present, mindful, listen and be a collaborator.

S:  Can I trust you to do all you say and be a good dialoguer?

M:  With more practice, I will help you teach yourself in this how to way, I call it the Socratic method.

S:  Courage, don’t forget to be willing to risk  it all with me or all you may trust.

M:  With much more practice, I will create my opus:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socratic_dialogue
