Beyond the Noise of Words

1.3.15

To listen, there must be an inward quietness, a freedom from the strain of acquiring, a relaxed attention. Words confuse; they are only the outward means of communication; but no commune beyond the noise of words, there must be in listening an alert passivity. 

Those who love may listen; but it is extremely rare to find a listener. Most of us are after results, achieving goals; we are forever overcoming and conquering, and so there is no listening. It is only in listening that one hears the song of the words.
