''The listener comes after the hearing. There is no listener before listening. The thinker appears after the thought not before. Hearing and thinking can happen without ego. The ego always says 'what should happen and should not happen' . Therefore let the awareness hear and think. Then no grasping and no rejecting . That is the end of the suffering too''  - Upul Gamage
