Observing without division, without the "me" interfering in the observation. Listening without interpretation - absolutely listening. Why should I have ideals? If I have no image of you, then I'm always seeing you anew. Our relationship is actually between these two images. When you empty the content, your consciousness as the "me" is not and you're listening with quite a different elan, at a different dimension.
What is the function and quality of the educator? Can he establish a relationship with the student which is not authoritarian, but one of mutual enquiry, study? The love of what I'm doing explodes everything else; that very love is the highest form of excellence. Meditation generally means an escape, but in its deepest sense it is nonclinical, non-analytical, seeing things as they are, self- knowing.
