Boyd K. Packer on Learning by the Spirit
“Make sure you learn the things that you are not taught overtly. If all you know is what you read or what you can hear, you will not know very much. Learn to feel as we were feeling something during that reverent period of time before the meeting started. I hope I have not intruded into that spirit or erased it. Those moments of reverence are so precious when you think and feel. That is why temples are so important. You can go to the temple and be out of the world.
Someone was asking me about that earlier today. I said, “You have to learn to be alone in a crowd. You have to have such control.” That is so important. We spend so much time in airports and in other noisy places. But I do not go there. I might be standing there physically, but I am not there spiritually, because I am thinking things and doing things in my mind. If you will learn to do that, then the Spirit will teach you.” Boyd K. Packer, The Twenty-Mark Note, BYU-I Devotional Address, March 2002
