How do you Hear/Who do you See?


Wednesday 13 March 2013


I hate when people talk over each other. Like the louder they speak, they better chance they’ll be heard. It is [to mention first] harder than hell to hear both of you vocalizing at the same time, and talking louder really does not help. It shows that a person is too impatient to wait for their peer to finish speaking, and instead feels that they have something more important to say. It shows clearly that they are not digesting what the other person is saying, because they have recalled a story about their own lives that is just as relevant. Why must we always be thinking of ourselves? What makes us more  important that we must be heard over the others? In most cases, we can take a lesson away from the things that other people talk about. It is good to practice being open-minded and accepting  of what the universe is presenting to you, and to not always be thinking of our own situations and “developments.” Let us (please) not talk over someone who is talking, or telling us a story. Out of respect, let them finish what they’ve thought to say… We are not as important as we think we are. Realize this. Our stories/complaints/views matter no more than anyone else’s. And the bottom line of this tangent: listen to what other people are telling you. For all you know, it could be the words you need to hear for a better understanding of something in your own life. And besides, how can we learn anything if all that we choose to see is ourselves?

I stand back and study every person; silently observing their behavior (towards me and other people), deciphering to myself the tick of their brain. Some people are honest, while there are those who are not. Many people care about things that don’t matter, and others might care about nothing (or no one) at all. During every connection I’ve had in my life—be it for five minutes or five years, etc.—I have studied the person in contact. I look into their eyes, quietly analyzing to myself why one might choose their method. After extended interaction and a read into their energy, body language and attitudes, I begin to sense the sincerity and genuineness of a person.

Their eyes. I imagine the eyes of a person to connect straight into their soul, and who is in touch with their soul (i.e. being a good person) will have an amount of depth to their eyes that is perceivable by others. Those who are immoral or disloyal exhibit a shallowness in their eyes…They are cold, and I am shut out. Gathered as my opinion, if a person’s eyes appear to lack such depth, in turn does their soul.
