Q: Are you sensitive?

If I prejudge you, I can't see you directly.

Do all the colours in this valley, and the sunlit rock on that hill early in the morning - all this beauty around you - mean something to you?

Do you watch very carefully? If you watch very carefully, it never becomes routine. Are you thinking while you are watching? Do you watch with your eyes only, or altogether? When you watch you begin to learn.

I am watching those trees and I am also watching myself. If you do that you become tremendously alive, your brain becomes extraordinarily sensitive.

Are you sensitive to people, to suffering? What is your relationship to what is happening in the world?

What is the use of education?
