momentary flutter

each life, a momentary flutter
on this eternal journey-
our flight to infinity.

Words are limited and cannot possibly transmit the whole experience; we could read all the books on love, and we will still have no idea what love means until we experience it.

This is also true with words like infinity, enlightenment, immortality, eternity. The awakened being has direct experience and knowing of these states, whereas for us, ordinary people, they remain largely mental concepts. So the ultimate goal is not belief, it is direct knowing which removes all possible doubt. We all have the potential for this direct knowing.

This is the major difference between eastern spiritualities and mainstream western religions-one gives the tools for direct experience and the other encourages mental conceptualization and belief.
