"IT'S NOT (ALL) 'ABOUT' THINKING/KNOWING,"

A.K.A.,

"YOU DON'T KNOW 'TIL YOU GET THERE"


Hanging-out,
'There,'
beyond the

"Pairs of Opposites,"

pure
seeing ...

'one'
may
come to the 'view' that
some
'thing'
is
'known'
'understood,'

"and",

in a (certain) 'sense,'

it
is.

yet ...
should one's
cyclic-rotation
'necessitate'
a

'descent'
into the

polarized world,
'one'
is
apt
to
'discover'
the
'inadequacy' (cf., Spinoza) of
'one's'
'knowing'
'understanding' ...


"for,"

true
knowing
understanding

"comes only from"

life-experience,

no matter
'how'
judged
evaluated or
'seen.'

not only is
'talk cheap,'
but,
so are
'views' ...

when
untested
in/through
life-experience ...


"for,"

one's
as-yet-unmanifesting
'karma'
has
yet to
'reveal'
itself,

has
yet to
'test'
one's
'responses' to
its
utter
objectivity.

these are,
perhaps,
several of the 'reasons'

it
is
said
that:

"Life is Learning."

oh,
so few of us
can
are willing to
learn from the
life-experiences of
'others' ...

to
be
'willing'
to
'test'
each 'truth'
by its 'use,'

"requires"

courage
conviction
perseverance and ...
an unshakable faith ...

sometimes,
'provided by'
the compassionate
insight of an
'other' ...
typically ...
a 'significant'
One.

how true it
turns
out
to
'be'
(that)

"Those who know do not say, and
those who say do not know" ...


"for,"

to truly Know
IS
to
'be'
utterly
'beyond'
words/concepts (which are),
at best,
sign-posts ...

"for"
those
willing
able
to
'follow'
such
'signs' ...

rather than to
merely
'read'
'define' or
'understand,' let alone to
'know'

them.

humbling
it
is
to,
at long last,
learn ...

how
much
'one'
has
to
learn ...


"eventhough" ...

there is,
"in fact,"

"Nothing"
to
'know'

"and"

No
One
to
'know'
IT.

just perhaps,
it
is
'time'
to
follow the
Teacher's
long-ago
injunction

"to"

"join the human race" ...


"and" ...

all
this
so
seemingly
long
'time,'

'one'
had
'assumed'
it
was
a
'done deal.'

It
Is
'hoped'
(that)
such
"Wonders"
will
never
cease.
