True listening goes far beyond auditory perception.
It is the arising of alert attention,
A space of presence in which the messages are being received.
The words now become secondary.
They may be meaningful or they may not make sense.
For more important than what you are listening to is the act of listening itself,
the space of conscious presence that arises as you listen.
That space is a unifying field of awareness in which you meet the other person without the separative barriers created by conceptual thinking.
And now the other person is no longer"other."
In that space,you are joined together as one awareness,
