“What do you do when a parrot starts screeching in a tree? Do you comment? Yes, then too you say, ‘Disturbing.’ You cannot listen even to a parrot. When the wind is blowing through the trees and there’s the rustling noise, do you listen to it? Sometimes, maybe; it catches you unawares. But then too you comment, ‘Yes, beautiful!’
Now watch: whenever you comment, you fall asleep. The mind has come in, and with the mind the past and future enter. The vertical line is lost – and you become horizontal. The moment mind enters you become horizontal. You miss eternity.
Simply listen. There is no need to say yes or no. There is no need to be convinced or not convinced. Simply listen, and the truth will be revealed to you – or the untruth! If somebody is talking nonsense, if you simply listen the nonsense will be revealed to you – without any commentary from the mind. If somebody is speaking the truth, it will be revealed to you. Truth or untruth is not an agreement or a disagreement of your mind, it is a feeling. When you are in total rapport, you feel, and you simply feel that it is true or it is untrue – and the thing is finished! No worrying about it, no thinking about it! What can thinking do?”
