Waking up via our ears


 "We grow into being able to listen. . .  

When a breakthrough takes place and we hear someone or something for the first time, we seem to wake up from a long sleep. . .

The experience of awakening throws us into another reality.  The whole experience borders on conversion as we now pay attention, in a new way, to sources that have always been."
