I have listened at all 4 levels. I am most alive in the third and fourth levels. Empathic listening is a spiritual experience as every part of me is with the being I am listening to. Everything else fades into the background. I am a therapist so I engage in empathic listening daily. The fourth level of listening is the deepest of spiritual experiences for me as I lose all sense of self and move into the divine. I experience this when I am in the woods or in a deep meditation.
