Align your earsto the truth. Listen carefully to every word. The voice of the heart cannot be imitated, has no scheme, seeks no advantage. It is neither silky nor cunning. You will hear this voice once your own desires are tamed. Then your ears can open to wisdom. Listen for the modesty of plain talk– straight, simple and direct. Though in short supply immediately, you will recognize the cadence. Know that you are never seduced by anyone but yourself.
