The gods do, indeed, whisper before they scream. The only real power we have to eliminate useless suffering in our world is to remain attentive, as in prayer, to the whispers instructing our choices. The challenge for all of us in the West is to hear the quiet instructions first, and then to maintain that listening in a screaming material world. Deep listening is a fearless, creative response worth cultivating above all else.
