The human ear is a wonderful work of art in nature. It is divided into three parts. From the vestibule of the auricle it receives the flood of tones, voices and sounds which pass through the membrane of the eardrum into the middle ear and from here are passed on into the tortuous auditory canal of the "cochlea". Finally, the sound enters the inner sanctum of the soul. Let the school be the place to learn right hearing, for "He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." (from the "Revelation" of John)
When prophets break through the doors of the night / tearing wounds with their words in the fields of habit. When the prophets break in through doors of the night and seek an ear like home. Ear of humanity, you busy with little eavesdropping, would you hear?
