LISTENING HEART

In order to truly hear and see another person you have to do more than stop speaking yourself and turn your ears and gaze towards the other. You have to become silent in your self and with your mind and open your heart to the being of the other. Otherwise all you are hearing and seeing are your own notions, projections and prejudices of how you believe the other to be like.
Relationships are usually sought because there is a need in the self to be heard and seen and thus understood by another person. However, it can be observed that very often there is no true relating happening between two partners because both parties are too busy listening to and seeing themselves instead of being willing and ready to truly listen to and see their partner.
