A stone in the water

Every day, we can take these practices to heart, include them into our daily activities, like eating our food. We want to absorb it, digest it and then, we get realization and experience. Otherwise, if there is just listening, listening, listening, I can teach you for 24 hours. But what will the use be? Then you will become just like a stone in the water. Take a stone, a rock out of the water; even if it had been in the water for a hundred years, a thousand years, when you pull it out, you break it open, it is still dry inside. No water has been absorbed into it.
