Beyond our feeble words

Some Taoist wisdom for the journey. Real relationship with what is deepest in our hearts is something we know instinctive and survives our poor words and concepts: 

There is no religion, no science, no writings, which will really show your mind the Way.

Today I speak in this way, tomorrow in another,

but always the Path is beyond words and beyond mind.

Lao Tzu (attributed),  The Huahujing

 

The Buddhists say there are 149 ways to God.

I’m not looking for God, only for myself, and that is far more complicated.

  1. Hi, Mindfulbalance,
    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the nice post. I really like your title, and the Lao Tzu quote really resonates with me. I’m not sure if you are familiar with general semantics, a big interest of mine, but this post reminds me of Korzybski’s concepts. Thanks again, and, blessings to you!

    1. Hiya,

      Sorry for the slow reply but I was travelling and not close to a computer. I am glad the post resonated and lots of blessing on your new blog and your meditation journey. I was only vaguely aware of Korzybski so your comments added to my knowledge and to my reading. Thanks for that. Karl
