We listen with our heart, not just with our ears. To listen well, our heart has to be quiet and still. When our heart is quiet and still, we listen well and we gain wisdom.
In the state of listening well and gaining wisdom; we must always remember that we have to put what we have heard into practice. Without practicing the gained wisdom, there are no benefits.
We must allow our heart to be open to gain wisdom and further grant ourself to practice the wisdom and that is how we will be able to experience something real inside us.
