"There is an art of listening. To be able to really listen, we should abandon or put aside all our predjudices, prefomulations of daily activities. But unfortunately most of us listen through a screen of resistance. We are screened with predjudices, whether religious or spiritual, psychological or scientific, or with our daily worries, desire, or fear. And we these for a screen, we listen. Therefore really, we listen to our own noise, our own sound, not to what is being said. It is extremely difficult to put aside our training, our predjudices, our inclination, our resistance, and reaching beyond our verbal expression, to listen so that we understand instantaneously."

~ Jiddy Krishnamurti, "The First and Last Freedom"
