You say the act of listening is a dimension of being rather than a skill. How so?

Listening is a dimension of being because it has to do with being related. Specifically, real listening is being fully present for the other person. You can develop the skill of hearing the words and even repeating them back and you might still not be “there” and the other person experiences that. We tend to think of communication as the passing of information back and forth. However, authentic communication goes beyond the words. It is a spiritual and an energetic connection. It is literally being present. When you are present to them, they are present to themselves and they can actually hear what they’re saying without having to fight through a web of judgment or distraction that goes on in the so-called listener. “Listening with your whole being” as we call it in QuantumThink creates a quality of relationship that will blow your mind.   144
