Listening ....

To listen fully means to pay close attention to what is being said beneath
the words. You listen not only to the 'music,' but to the essence of the
person speaking. You listen not only for what someone knows, but for what
he or she is. Ears operate at the speed of sound, which is far slower than
the speed of light the eyes take in. Generative listening is the art of
developing deeper silences in yourself, so you can slow your mind’s hearing
to your ears’ natural speed, and hear beneath the words to their meaning.
