I found this quote thismorning from one of my tweeps @naturalmind
“There is only one truth that no mouth can utter; the rest are just stories about the same old tale…” – Yosi, the poet
Well there you have the crux of the matter; “one truth that no mouth can utter”. In trying to get to the crux of the matter (of all that is) we tell our stories to each other in an attempt to get at that one truth which will banish suffering and bring peace and real understanding to each individual. The most fortunate among us see and feel it and try to help others to see and feel it but our stories can, at best, be but a spark which may or may not ignite the knowing of true essence in another and at worst lead people down yet another garden path. If stories worked to achieve real personal understanding the great religious literature from all cultures would have long since enlightened everyone on the planet and we could eliminate discussing this stuff, yet here we are forever going on about the nature of our reality. It’s pitiful and funny – funny like the universe is funny.
