Layers of listening

You never listen!
I did not feel heard.

Why do we say things like this? What do we really mean?

I have been reading through the book of Deuteronomy and noticing how the Israelites were rebuked by the LORD because they did not listen.

It is interesting how there are layers of listening
-hearing the sounds
-hearing the words
-understanding what information the words carry
-understanding the feeling behind them
-taking to heart the message and acting on it
