“Ideas actually fragment the vision, intuition or experience of reality as a whole. – Words cannot give you reality. They only point, they only indicate. You use them as pointers to get to reality. But once you get there, your concepts are useless.”

Anthony de Mello in “Awareness”

“Agreement and disagreement have to do with words and concepts and theories. They don’t have anything to do with truth. Truth is never expressed in words. Truth is sighted suddenly, as a result of a certain attitude…an attitude of openness, of willingness to discover something new. I cannot describe the truth. No one can. All I can do is give you a description of your falsehoods so you can drop them.”
