It’s Not What We Know That Matters …
It’s not what we know that matters …
… it’s how we are that matters
We reflect what we know.
We don’t ask, “What do you know?”.
We ask, “How are you?”.
We don’t read minds; we read faces, countenances, behaviours.
We are attracted to the first moment of abiding in the open space of consciousness,
which allows us to relax into the same open space of consciousness.
Intellectual talk is competitive –
the hard-going transmission.
Silence is accommodating –
the spontaneous transmission.
The heart of the matter is beyond the thinking mind.
