      "A person standing at an open window hears the sounds from outside; it is
      impossible not to do so. But he can give the voices his attention or not, as
      he himself wishes. The praying person is continually beset by a stream of
      inappropriate thoughts, feelings and mental impressions. To stop this
      tiresome stream is as impracticable as to stop the air from circulating in an
      open room. But one can notice them or not. This, say the saints, one learns
      only through practice."
