A speaker is only as good as his audience. A teacher is only as good as her student.
It’s amazing to notice that the people we interact with are as only as good as our judgment.
I hate that word – judgment. It’s as if we humans are not able to perceive anything without judging. But it’s true, we can’t. The things we see, the melodies we hear and the sensations we feel are interpretations of the tyranny of conscious thought. We are forever fools engaged in a cycle of illusion.
Once in awhile however, you meet someone who’s capable of a mirror reflection. The things they say and the passionate calmness in the way they say it forces our thoughts inward and we look at ourselves in the process of judgment.
It’s times like these you really learn to appreciate the company of another human being.
