Q. The world is noisy. Most of the time we cannot hear the voice from inside, and we forget there is such a kind of voice. How should we listen?
A. It is not because the world is noisy but because you discriminate between noise and inner voice that the world sounds noisy. There is neither inside nor outside unless you make a division by creating an imaginary line. As long as you divide oneness into inside and outside and noise and inner voice, you can’t escape from noise. When you stop making discriminations of inside and outside and noise and inner voice, all sounds become the voice you are anxious to listen to.
