The doors of the heart open only to love. And remember it is only when one hears with the heart and not with the head that listening happens. You may ask, “Does the heart hear as well?” I would say that whenever listening happens it is always through the heart. So far the head has never heard anything. The head is stone deaf. And this is also true of speaking. Only when words come from the heart are they meaningful. Only when words come from the heart do they have the fragrance of fresh flowers; otherwise they are not only stale and faded, they are artificial – plastic flowers.
