My heart is still capable of loving. My heart that has been broken by someone but had failed to take away the tenderness

If you are going to start helping people, you're going to have to start doing the following things. First, you've got to stop imposing yourself on others, and your value systems upon them, you've got to be real and you've got to learn to listen. There are all kinds of symbols. Verbal language is only one. Sometimes by opening our mouths, we make dreadful errors. It's often so much nicer just to look at somebody and vibrate. I'm determined that one of these days I'm going to free myself of all responsibility and study human vibrations because I'm sure they exist even as much as the vibrations that are sending this sound to you. When we find that secret, we may find some means of communication that is a little more adequate than words. I think that listening is tremendously important, and yet we abhor and are frightened of silence. The most beautiful things could go on if we were silent. You've got to be real. Don't be a phony. Come on as yourself. The hardest thing in the world is to be someone you're not. As you get closer and closer and closer to what you are, be that and come on all the time that way. You'll find it's an easy way to live. The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don't let them put you in that position. Find who you are and come on as you are. Then you can live simply. You won't be playing games any more. Just clear them all away and say, "Here's me and take me for what I am with all my frailties, all my stupidity and if you can't, leave me alone". Another thing, don't order anyone to do anything. You're not God. You don't know what is in someone else's head. You can guide but you can't order. And try to communicate, try to understand. Finally remember that you are a team. You're dealings with people are only going to be as successful as you are together. You're going to want to plan together what you're going to do because there are greater resources and strength in many than there are in one.
