Reflect upon the Essence

Locked mind

The intellect can as easily reach

His deepest Essence,

As a piece of floating wreckage

can reach to the depths of the sea.

~ Sana’i

  1. I like this quote. I feel the intellect can only operate in black & white and for that to happen, it has to make judgements. The essence can only be reached if you are open and unconstrained by thoughts and impressions.

    • Dear Sonya,

      Thanks for your visit and comments.

      I’ve heard it said that “God is that which confounds the mind.” Thank goodness for those who point to a way beyond the intellect.

      All good wishes,


  2. As I see it – the intellect is merely a ladder – to be used and then discarded once reached above and beyond that which it cannot comprehend. Thank you Robert for sharing.

    • Dear Anjali,

      Thank you for your visit and comments. I like how you describe the intellect as a ladder with a limit.

      All good wishes,
