Thank you for the encouragement blossomingtree. I don't mind at all people poking holes in what ever I put out there. That's half of the reason I post publicly at all.

I want people to point out other things to me as I would hope others value that too otherwise what's the point? Doesn't mean I am going to take it in lock stock and barrel but I do give it my full consideration.

I am where I am because I didn't just listen to what I expected to hear in life. In fact my biggest spiritual moments happen from the unexpected. I'd think by now I'd expect the unexpected but then again they wouldn't be as exceptional moments if I did so there is that

There really is that which is indescribable and definitely this sentence doesn't do it justice either. It doesn't need justice but in my head I feel a desire to try regardless. Maybe that's my new question, why do I feel the desire to do 'it' justice with the knowledge it requires no justice nor seeks it?

:::: throws another clay pigeon ::::

The indescribable is like knowing before knowing was known.

Indeed, how spiritual would or could you be if you were really that thin skinned and unable to make a stand?

More seriously,

"There really is that which is indescribable and definitely this sentence doesn't do it justice either."


Of course. We all try.

Words are what we have and use in daily life and naturally on forums. It's a proper medium and can be used to facilitate that which is beyond both duality and words.

Nothing like a pair of chopsticks when ya want a buffet!

Enjoy -

Love the line!

As the lyrics from a U2 video attest, "You've been living underground
Eating from a can."

So if chop sticks are all there is at the above ground buffet (outdoor seating please) I'm good as long as it's not canned food.

The way I see it is, words meant for communication straight away implies the "You and I" duality. It's the intent behind them where the duality lies.

But words on their own, without attached meaning or intent, are no more than appearances.
