“Really, meditation is about deep listening. You sit and what needs to be understood will come if you sit quietly. It is like going into the forest and finding a little clearing and sitting down. If you’re quiet for a while the animals, the birds, they all resume their life and you see all the things you would never see before. ” – Jack Kornfield
