Any word is dangerous, because its meaning comes from the past.
And for me the problem is: to use the words which come from the past __
The words are old, the bottles are old, but the wine is new.
“The really significant things is life can never be said through words; only silence is capable of communion. Words are utilitarian __ the belong to the marketplace __ hence when you really want to say something of the heart you will always find it unsayable. Love cannot be uttered, gratitude cannot be spoken of, prayer is bound to be a deep silence inside you.
And this is of fundamental importance to understand because we are brought up through words, with the idea that everything can be said: we try to say it, and by saying those things which are not sayable we falsify them.
Lao Tzu says, :Tao cannot be said, the moment you say it you have already falsified it.”
That’s exactly what religion is: transcendence of words
