An idea worth spreading

"Each person's map of the world is as unique as their thumbprint. There are no two people alike...no two people who understand the same sentence the same way...So in dealing with people try not to fit them to your concept of what they should be." - Milton Erickson

Antonio Damasio: The quest to understand consciousness
Even though Damasio’s vision is in itself not entirely novel--its major elements can be discerned in Aristotle, in Nietzsche, the publication of Descartes' Error, challenged traditional ideas about the connection between emotions and rationality, and with his theory of consciousness, set a valuable point to attempt to explain mind, reason, emotion and self in biological terms.

TED Speaker Julian Treasure: What would a conscious listening world be like – and how do we get there?
I think that the relationship between technology and listening, and the lack of listening, is that we lose the essential elements of connection between humans by using those devices constantly. We lose the personal contact: face-to-face, eye contact, heart-to-heart connection, breath, and tones. The connection is rational and everything happens quickly. A conscious listening means that two people are rational and emotional connected. It means self-examination and self-awareness. It happens when you are connected with someone “in real”, when you take the time and space for both in favor for the connection without rational purpose. Of course, it’s worth it! I can’t remember where I read this, but it was illuminating, “To listen is to have integrity and to be conscious of the integrity of others, of being present to the “global” field of awareness".
