“So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.”~Jiddu Krishnamurti
Said a traveller to one of the disciples, "I have traveled a great distance to listen to the Master, but I find his words quite ordinary."
"Don't listen to his words. Listen to his message."
"How does one do that?"
"Take hold of a sentence that he says. Shake it well till all the words drop off. What is left will set your heart on fire."
~Anthony de Mello
“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”~Swami Vivekananda
“A wise man hears one word and understands two.”-Yiddish Proverb
“One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.”
P.S: Ordinary words may convey extraordinary wisdom.The essence of the message may be understood and interpreted differently by those listening.What we choose to take from the message is up to each one of us.
