Whenever we inquire deeply into our nature, we may reach the same conclusion: we cannot know.
The meanings we create and rely on cannot bear true witness.
That is why the great teachers of the past have said, “Why do you chase after understanding?
Why do you need to prove something?
Instead, create ease.
Ease your concepts and your thoughts, ease your intellectualization and your looking.
Give up on forcing experience into pigeon holes, whether you follow the path of the intellect or the path of meditation.”
