Do you know that listening is the fastest way of learning? Do you realise that most people around you hardly listen? They may be pretending they are listening, but their mind is too busy trying to formulate a response to you or they are having a separate conversation with themselves. Once I was suffering with the poor listening skill. It was only after I started my spiritual work on myself that I realised everything in life starts with authentic listening.
The human race is suffering from one serious degeneration in learning ability i.e. transmission of knowledge through listening. The listening skill of the modern men has suffered so much that the younger generation is also losing the innate ability of pure listening at a quicker speed than their parents! The problem that our society is facing now is – listening has dropped so much; instead the logical thinking has taken over.
