Kereta, Coromandel, New Zealand

We cannot comprehend concepts of God, Nirvana, Heaven, Universal Energy, or whatever labels we use to describe our spiritual nature. We cannot explain what happens to us after we die. We know that Spirit seems to embody certain characteristics, such as Love. But the totality cannot be "figured out." Our labels and beliefs hinder our understanding.

It is not merely that it is too vast or complex to comprehend. It is that it cannot be understood through thought. It cannot be explained through language.

However, it can be known through experience. We can experience it by living beyond thought. We can become one with All That Is by releasing our thoughts, ideas, judgments and beliefs and becoming present. We can be comfortable with the idea of not knowing.

Let's surrender to the Great Mystery.

There is a much deeper knowing beyond thought, without words.
