“What I am I am… and say not. Being is the great explainer.”
Henry David Thoreau
We are enculturated to believe that explanations have to do with thoughts and words. If we want to explain ourselves… we have to think and speak. But is this the way to the best explanations?
Great masters have always taught that the greatest explanation is that which is beyond thoughts and words. In the stillness of a moment… the truth is most powerfully conveyed… the truth of unencumbered being. Thoughts and words can be but limitations compared to the absence of them.
The experience of being is that of a witnessing consciousness simply watching what is happening. It conveys great power because it is not limited by thoughts and words. It delivers the greatest explanation as the experience of unlimited life in all its fullness.
This week… why not follow Thoreau’s advice? Be wakeful in being and let your witnessing consciousness convey your experience and be the explanation that is forever unlimited in most truthful expression. Always remember… being is the great explainer.
