Sitting a comfortable distance apart, put your attention on your partner(s) as a Divine Entity or Individual.
Keeping your attention on the Individual behind the personality and the body stay open to the contact between you and the other(s) as Conscious Individuals.
During the exercise, remain silent, without fidgeting, laughing, smiling, noding your head or raising your eyebrows.
Be mindful that your eyes and what your eyes are looking at is different than your attention. Continue being aware of the other as Divine.

Tell me how you want to be loved.
Tell me how you want to love others.
Sitting across form another person, the communicator sends a thought to them as directly as they can. The communicator looks through a novel and chooses a line of dialogue. They get the thought being stated clearly in their consciousness. Then they close the book and deliver the communication to their partner using any words or actions necessary to get the thought across so their partner understand it.
The communicator sends the thought directly form their self, and not from a role or a personality. Practise this over and over again until both of you are satisfied that the communication was sent and received straight to from one divine individual to the other.
This drill increases your ability to understanding by following these steps.
First decide to relate to another.
Second communicate your thought about what you want to relate.
Third recognize and be aware of the state of reality that exists when the another receives your thought.
Tell me what reality is:
Tell me what reality is not.

Receiving and Understanding Drill
Sitting a comfortable distance apart, one partner reads dialogue from a novel. The receiving partner listens, gets the thought and acknowledges, saying ‘thank you,’ when they get the communication.
The communicating partner may query the listening partner at any time and ask “what did I say?” The Listener must be able to express the thought they heard, though not necessarily the exact words.
Both partners must be satisfied that communication has taken place and has been completed. Roles are reversed at ten minute intervals.
This exercise will help increase one’s ability to understand others, and increase the state of relating reality between individuals. Partners also get some practise putting themself second.
