Show It to Me | April 3, 2015
You are telling
me thought is limited. Show it to me! Not by talking of memory,
experience, or knowledge; I understand that, but I don’t capture the
feeling that it is limited, because I see the beauty of the earth, I see
the beauty of a building, of a person, of nature. I see all that, but
when you say thought is limited, I don’t feel it. It is just a
lot of words which you have said to me. Intellectually I understand. But
I have no feeling for it. There is no perfume in it.
