Why is there a problem between parents and children? You know why? I’m a little bit of an expert. I have four children ... for my own. I’m a grandfather—so, makes me a little—automatic expert. And I’ll tell you what the problem is. We don’t hear each other. We don’t listen to each other.
What is the problem between husband and wife? Don’t hear each other. Don’t listen to each other. What is the problem between government and the citizens? Don’t listen to each other. People don’t hear the government; government doesn’t hear the people.
And what is the problem with the self? We don’t hear ourselves. We don’t hear the needs that we have. We don’t hear the want, the wish of this heart to be content—simple! To have simplicity in this life. To have joy. To feel the gratitude, every single day.
