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.
