Phantom Tollbooth - busyness and listening

Our days are filled with countless activities so much so that we often forget about nurturing ourselves, which has a negative effect on our wellbeing and on those around us.

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” Socrates

There is a big difference between listening and hearing. Hearing is a sense – it happens when sound hits our ears and involves the processing of sound in the brain. It is a passive physical process. Listening, on the other hand, is an action we consciously take. When we actively listen, we go beyond simply hearing words and sounds by giving our attention to what is being said or going on around us to discover their meaning and intent.
