The Art of Listening

Third Dialogue with five Teachers
What is the relationship between a teacher and a student, when both realize that they are conditioned?
That we, as human beings wherever we live, are conditioned by society, culture and religion. And part of that conditioning is ambition, which expresses itself in the desire for success.
Is conditioning self-centredness?
If I am prejudiced, if I have a certain point of view and stick to it.
I can't listen to you. You may be contradicting my point of view and so I won't listen.
So if I can learn the art of listening, I would solve many problems.
If you are passionately involved, not verbally but wholly, in what you are saying you are saying your very passion makes me listen to you.
How can we help the student to understand the nature of conditioning
Your consciousness is the consciousness of all humanity.
