If we believe that we are going to find the truth here, in these writings; we may be wrong.
If we think that we will find the “ultimate truth” in any religion; we may be wrong as well. There is no dogma or belief that could convey the truth.
If we think that this “truth” could be put in words as to “tell everyone what it is,” we will make a fool of ourselves.
If we think that we know God because we have an “experience” of God; we may need to think it twice: Knowing is not a description. Knowing is not a definition. Knowing is not analysis. Knowing is not talking about it.
Knowing is being it, for only in being something, we can know and that cannot be described.
Avyakt7 cannot describe himself for by doing that, Avyakt7 will “frame” something which is continuously changing. Avyakt7 today is not the same one as yesterday. A description of Avyakt7 is just a lie of what Avyakt7 ”is.” At the same time, Avyakt7 is merely a label. 🙂
As long as we are cluttered with thoughts and thinking, as long as our minds are not “pure” with emptiness, crystal clear without the clutter of our own past experiences, our own judgments and preconceptions, we cannot know anything at all. We can just describe, repeat, follow, believe.
That is why in spirituality one of the first realizations is to see the futility of our own minds in grasping something which is not related with thought and thinking.
That is why, to have a piece of information and call that “knowledge,” is a good way to deceive ourselves.
Deceive ourselves from what?
From knowing ourselves.
Is Spirituality, everyone of us have to walk the path to know. There are no shortcuts. We cannot disclose our findings as the truth, for every spiritual walker is in a particular place in the spiritual path.
If we talk about “lakes,” unless we have experienced that; we will not understand. But again, to say “lake” and to describe the “lake,” is not the same as knowing the “lake,” nor to define a lake means to “speak the truth” about “lakes.” Our talk or description can only be a vague reference, a clue for someone else.
A description can never be the truth. Words can never touch it.
