Philosophy

A Heart that Stays…

*

Do your hearing

not with your ears

but with your mind.

*

Do your thinking

not with your mind

but with your soul.

*

Let the hearing stay with the ears.

Let the thinking stay with the mind.

*

But what, then, of the soul?

Let it become passively responsive to externals.

That negative state is a staying of the heart.

*

Consider a window…

Through it an empty room

becomes bright with scenery

but the landscape stays without.
