To be present in passive listening without that there is any inner calculator, will say, that you look at your partner, your children, without having any conceptions about them.
A conception is perhaps of superficial kind, or it is lying dwelling, deep down in the subconscious. And in the Life Artist it is not enough to listen to the conception you have pieced together outwards. Also the conceptions you have innermost you must be aware of – your conceptions about the race, about the culture, the historical perspective in the conception you have about yourself.
So, it is not only on the conscious plane you shall listen, but also on the hidden plane, deep in yourself. In all the most distant corners of the mind, there must be created a listening presence.
