YES, WE HAVE TWO EARS AND ONE MOUTH, FOR A REASON…SO THAT WE LISTEN TWICE AS MUCH AS WE SPEAK. Which is a famous saying from the past. This is something that more and more people are doing less and less. To LISTEN is to; pay attention to, show an interest in. Today we let too many things distract us. We have forgotten how to LISTEN.
LISTENING to another means that you possess EMPATHY, COMPASSION and HUMILITY. These are all good and wonderful things to possess. Demonstrating these attributes through your LISTENING WITH BOTH EARS will eventually have you donating the same attributes to those that you LISTEN to. Why? Through the common COMPASSION and EMPATHY that the others will feel from you.
BOTH OUR EARS LEAD DIRECTLY TO OUR SOUL. Our COMPASSION, LOVE, HUMILITY and INTUITION all live in the SOUL, so we need our TWO EARS to lead to the SOUL The four Chinese characters that make up the verb TO LISTEN are; EARS, EYES, HEART, UNDIVIDED ATTENTION. Putting those four words, characters, together make the verb TO LISTEN. This tells us something about the skill of listening.
When a person uses ONE EAR TO LISTEN, that person tends to look away from the individual talking. Using the TWO EARS, at the same time, makes us use both eyes to see the person we listen to. Enabling the person speaking their NEEDS to see the COMPASSION, LOVE and UNDERSTANDING radiate from the listener’s eyes. So, yes WE HAVE TWO EARS FOR A REASON. USE THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME, ALWAYS BE IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SOUL.
PLEASE TAKE CARE, STAY WELL, STAY HEALTHY. THANK YOU.
