Possibilities within your Relationships

Possibilities within your Relationships

Let’s say your relationships is like an empty bowl. An empty bowl has nothing in it. You can choose what you want to place in it. You can put salad in it. You can put fruits. You can put pebbles. You can put soup. The possibilities in your relationships are endless. However, if the bowl is already filled with soup, you can’t put fruits in it, it won’t work. When the bowl in your  relationships is empty, the possibilities are created. Let’s say that whenever we engage in a conversation with someone, we are like an empty bowl. Because of the emptiness of this bowl, we get to listen attentively —that is, listen in a pure and unadulterated way. We get to take in fully what the other person is saying in our relationships. We become a space for creation. We recreate what we receive, rather than reacting to it. When a relationships bowl is not empty, whatever is in the bowl reacts to what you will put in anew. Thus, you are limited in the things you can receive. Let’s say that whenever we engage in a conversation with someone, we are like an empty bowl.

We recreate what we receive, rather than reacting to it. When a bowl is not empty, whatever is in the bowl reacts to what you will put in anew. Thus, you are limited in the things you can receive. opinions, interpretations, meanings we’ve attributed, certainties, positions, beliefs, concepts, and everything else that we know to be true in our relationships.

Now, it is impossible to listen to someone in a new and open way when what we are hearing are actually our very own predefined opinions, interpretations, ascribed meanings, certainties, positions, beliefs, concepts, and all other things that we know to be true. And the truth is, these are exactly the things that we hear even before we hear anything else, making us therefore, already always listening (Platt, 2007). This “Already-Always-Listening” destroys multiple possibilities in our relationships —the opportunity for a deeper relationship founded on that conversation, the opportunity to arrive at a great idea inspired by that conversation, etc. —exactly because it causes us to not listen in our relationships. And so this is one thing that we need to keep in mind about this “Already-Always-Listening”: it is automatic, and it drowns out all newness, generosity, and possibilities in a conversation (Platt, 2007). This is what a reactive conversation looks like.The first step against this “Already-Always-Listening” is to be aware of it. When you are aware of your responses, you don’t move in a reactive manner. Just as any other issue or problem in life that we want to be able to take care of, we must first know what the problem is in our relationships, we must first be aware that a problem actually exists.
