The Mystic’s Dilemma

How should I say what is infinitely ineffable?

How should I say what is infinitely ineffable?

How should I speak what is essentially unspeakable?

How should I describe what defies all description?

How should I write what cannot ever be written?

How should I communicate what can only be experienced?

How can I relate what can only be known first-hand?

How can I point without drawing attention to the pointer?

How can I paint what can never be seen?

How can I sing what can never be vocalized?

How can I know what can only be felt?

How could language express that which is forever beyond language?

How could words describe the Word?

How could concepts ever grasp what is eternally beyond concepts?

How could ideas ever capture what is not an idea?

How could images ever show what is beyond all imagination?


I give you this as a free gift. I live in a gift economy, so I give all of my time and work freely to you. I depend on your good will and generosity so that I may live and continue to write and support people like you as we grow to greater consciousness. If you were inspired by this, if it sparked new insights or understanding in you, I invite you to also give, to participate in "the Gift". I accept gifts primarily in the form of credit/debit card donations. It takes only a few moments. I express my deepest gratitude to you for your gift!
You may also participate in this community and give in other ways: comment on posts, subscribe to email updates, like the Facebook page, follow my personal Facebook profile, ask to join the community's Facebook group, ask me a question, submit a scripture for me to translate, submit a "First Vision" experience, or contact me to talk about something else, or to offer your gifts in another way. I look forward to getting to know you!
