This little ‘poem’ is based on something GD said on a phone call. The mind, he said, is always looking for that one spiritual answer, that one final insight which will satisfy us permanently. But every mental answer only leads to more questions, and every amazing insight fades in time.
The real answer, GD reminded me, is not in words. It is not a combination of words or sentences that will free us, it is this presence-awareness from which all words arise. This has stayed with me for many months now, a useful reminder when I get too obsessed with seeking knowledge outside instead of resting in the knowing that I am.
