The true words.

Why speak when it is not in the words?....why?...well there is an anecdot;

The Disciples were full of questions about ‘God’ The Master said;"God is the unknown and the unknowable, every statement and any answer or question is a distortion about 'the truth'". The disciples was bewildered and asked why he was talking at all? "Why did the birds sing?” said the master, "not because they have a statement but because they have a song. The words of the scholar are to be understood, but the word of the master is not to be understood. They are listening to as one would be listening to the wind in the trees, and a sound of the river or to a song of a bird. The words will awaken something, but in a heart that is beyond all knowledge.
