Don't listen alone but see to believe.

The wise said, "Sight is often blind, whereas listening is clearer in thought". Sometimes it doesn't work, because ears could be soft, when one listens more to gossips without even seeing. Gossips could spread like fire through rumour mongers, who might be unintentional or intentional, or out of jealousy, anger and hatred.

Those who rely by listening out of gossips, and eventually spreading its rumours can cause much harm and damages to the parties or individual concerns. Witnessing our current local political arena, many great and successful leaders' image and reputation were badly tarnished due to rumour mongering. The purpose is mainly due to various agendas of different parties and alliances. One word...selfishness.

I had also seen many beautiful relationships turned sour because unpleasant rumours affected and severed their tie and bonding. Listening without sighting can be treacherous, whereas seeing is believing. I know in life, I will not be able to satisfy everyone I meet. I do have many friends and admirers who adore and speak highly on me, but of course I am sure there are some hidden unfriendly guys out there too, who might not like me. These are the one who causes all the miseries by listening without proper facts and evidences of any wrong doing.

Listening alone isn't enough. Listening and sighting works better in our practical and logical world. I believe the intelligent won't just judge a book by its cover alone and the smart would never listen by gossips and rumours. The facts of life is, the minute you point your one finger at another person, your own three fingers are directed back to yourself again. So the bottom line is...never believe in anything through listening without the witness of the eyes.

Do you know - "The eye is the window of the soul; the intellect and will are seen in it. The animals look for man's intentions right into his eyes. Even a rat, when you hunt and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye"
