How to Listen and Open the Door to our Deepest Self

By Robert Bencivenga

September 3, 2020


I’m not going to tell you about how you need to be a better listener, so you can be a better communicator. You’ve heard that many times already.

I’m going to tell you about a way of listening that will connect you to the deepest part of yourself, and the entire world!

When you listen from the deepest part of yourself, you’re putting all the beliefs, meanings, and interpretations you’ve created to keep your world in order, to the side. You’re just listening!

You’re not thinking while you’re listening, comparing what’s being said to what you already believe about it, and what you want to say in response. And you’re not trying to figure it out.

You’re not comparing what’s being said to what you already know, and thinking, “I already know that.” You’re not analyzing and judging whether you believe it or not.

You’re just listening and letting the words go through you to see where they land, what they invoke in you. What are they pointing to beyond just the words and concepts?

Our True Nature: Awakened Consciousness

Awakened Consciousness, our deepest self, is not something we connect with through our mind. It is beyond the grasp of our mind!

By listening from the deepest part of ourselves, we awaken to the truth that who we are is not limited to our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, or interpretations of our ego self. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating we get rid of our ego. We all need a healthy empowering ego, but it’s extremely limited.

We realize we are not the limited being we identify with through our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, and take to be the extent of our self.

Who you are is not “just that”! You are not just a limited being with an ego. But to call what is beyond “just that”, simply consciousness doesn’t do it justice either. It’s been called many things throughout the ages…God, Spirit, Enlightenment, Divine Self, etc. No matter what you call it, it’s definitely a very particular dimension of consciousness that sits at the heart of our Being. It’s that part of you that’s timeless and changeless and untouched by the goings on of the world.

This consciousness is your True Nature. 

And it is already and always present in everyone and everything. 

Now, you just have to Listen and wake up to it! 

Accessing Your Deepest Self

Most of us have this nagging, haunting feeling that there’s something more, because there is! But we look outside ourselves to try to find it. Funny thing is we look outside ourselves to even perverse things like money, sex, food, and drugs to try and find it. We keep on trying to get to somewhere else and something else to try and find it, while it’s already and always been right inside of us.

Or we look for a special feeling, mental state, or experience to confirm the existence of our True Nature, and we miss it because it’s beyond our mind and comprehension of our ego. It’s beyond getting attached to the byproducts of it. It’s beyond the benefits and effects of mindfulness, and meditation. Although meditation can be used to connect to it, it’s not an effect of meditation. It’s beyond staying in the present moment, and quieting our mind. 

Through this listening and stillness, the space is created to intuitively sense this essence that awakens down deep inside each of us trying to know itself!
