Q: What does it mean to be serious?

In the word ‘communication’ is implied the art of listening.

Listening demands a quality of attention in which there is a real sense of having an insight as we go along, each second.

Communication implies that we must be at the same level at the same time, with the same intensity, walking together on the same road, thinking together in the same tongue, observing together, sharing together.

Responsibility means total commitment. The world is in a mess and it's my responsibility, living in this world as a human being who has created this mess, to be serious about its resolution.
