According to the Hatha yoga text or the ancient scriptures, listening is very, very important. Through listening, we can begin to hear. And through hearing, we start to put things together. We start to know, you could say. And through knowing, then we recognize ourselves as becoming. Meaning we recognize the process of development. Of moving towards a wholeness and letting go of fragmentation. Letting go of destructive tendencies. Letting go of feeling of being incomplete.
