Labeling the moment doesn’t clarify it, it obscures and deadens it… new MJ Awakening Blog

krishnamurti bird quote

Words point to things, objects, appearances. But the word never tells you what the thing, object, appearance actually IS. Just like the word “whale” doesn’t actually tell you what that huge, black, oblong shaped being is in the ocean.

Words don’t actually mean anything. They are meaningless sounds. Thinking they do have meaning because that’s what you’ve been taught doesn’t make it so. You can’t drink the word “water,” so in reality you have no idea what it actually is!

Labeling the moment doesn’t clarify it, it obscures it. It makes you believe you know what something is, and in the process deadens it.
