The Problem with Words

Everything I'm experiencing now is so hard to put into words. It's so much bigger than my puny words can capture.

I think that's the problem with the Bible and all the ancient spiritual teachings. They use words, which limit the concepts being taught, making those concepts much smaller and reducing their significance. But over the years, people have grabbed on to those small words as if they were the whole truth. Failing to recognize the vast truths behind the words - truth that must be felt or experienced rather than intellectually understood.
