Listen and see

 People often said, you have to know how to listen instead of just hear… Or learn how to see rather than just watch…

I suppose those words means that we have to pay attention on our surrounding… or when people tell a story to you…or during the year of being a student.

Just think about it. You are in the class and you watch your teacher standing there and hear her explaining Math on the white board. What you did not see is your teacher is wearing a band-aid on her forehead and definitely did not listen to whatever she was explaining about…

So, when people I asked you like, “Hey, what’s on Mrs X’s forehead? And can you explain to me what she was talking about?” You could probably look at that person blankly as you have no idea what is it about…

Just the same like professional photographer saying to the model, “You look pretty but your eyes were empty on this photo…”
And you look at the photo and watch and thinking hard… I have not seen anything wrong with this photo… The model looks drop dead gorgeous… What’s about those eyes with empty staring? She is not dead…
That’s because we can not see it the real expression… They said, that when you are happy you do not have to show it with too overly wide smile stuck on your face. Your eyes will speak the word without need a single word or smile. Sure, we can say we have no experience with that kind of observation. WHICH is why we should be learning to see, right?

Your friend poured her broken heart story for almost 3 hours… If you do care, you will listen to every word she said and get a headache at home… While listening carefully and keep it in your memory, it sort of drain your energy… As your friend moving her negative thinking and energy through her story to you… But, if you bored and think 1 hour of listening is enough…you probably just hear her moaning, crying, whining, but have no memory whatsoever on whatever she told you. The good thing for you, you will be able to deny perfectly if other people ask about your friend’s story in detail. The bad news is, if your friend asked, “Do you remember him? The one I told you the other night?”  And you just give that pretending blank expression, again… :D

Paying attention will allow you to absorb the information and processed it in our mind… I suppose by seeing more thoroughly or listening more carefully, we will be able to notice something different in the way people talk or walk, or see the beauty of the painting that others can’t seems to find it…

Yeah, need to say no more… It is a hard task and I do wish I will be able to do so… My ears usually start to block hearing things that makes me dizzy or bored or sleepy… Things that I do not understand will bore me to death… Which is a pity… I just shut myself to learn a lot more…
