They miss the whisper that runs
any day in your mind,
“Who are you really, wanderer?”
and the answer you have to give
no matter how dark and cold
the world around you is:
“Maybe I’m a king. — William Stafford
Your dreaming self seeks to tell you something your waking ears will not hear. — Jacqueline Carey
Above all, he learned from it how to listen, to listen with a still heart, with a waiting, open soul, without passion, without desire, without judgment, without opinions. — Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
“May hearing enter him and the exactness of every heart that speaks to him. No one is born wise. To listen well is to speak well.
He who listens is a master of what is good.
Splendid is listening to one who hears!
Listening is better than all else.
It manifests perfect love.” ~ The Wisdom of Ptahhotep
How many times have you encountered the saying, ‘When the student is ready, the Master appears?’ Do you know why that is true? The door opens inward. The Master is everywhere, but the student has to open his mind to hear the Masters voice. – Robert Anton Wilson
