0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
When we hear we are either accept, or reject, or we translate what we hear according to our knowledge, our background, or we compare what is being said to what is already known, or we oppose one idea by another. All these caracteristics of hearing denies the act of listening ... When one listen there is no comparance, there is no acceptance or rejection. The very act of listening brings about a total attention in wich you see the totallity and the whole significance and structure of what is being said. The quality of listening is attention. And when you attent totally, with your whole mind, with your heart,and your nerves,and your eyes and ears ... completely intensly listening ! And you give your whole attention to something. That is completely listening. In that steak of attention there is the act of listening. And that act of listening puts away anything that is not true. You listen to the totallity of the thing ! When you attent, there is no borders of inattention. and that act of listening is really a miracle Perhaps it is the greatest one. When one can listen totally, without any defense, without any barrier... Than one can look, than one can listen. If i want to understand what you are saying... i must listen to ... i must listen to with affection,with care, with attention ... when i want to find out what you are saying . What if i say is ? "I believe that i never heard this before " ? Or you are saying yourself something witch is impossible ... you are not listening... We are destroying eachother... right ? The terroristic act, with all the rest of it. we are destroying eachother... Because we want each one of us to feel he is separate.... And if you see the danger, than you listen you are already in a state of true listening to find out that there is a way out of this, ... right? ... Are you listening that way ? ...

“So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.”
