If you use your mind to try and understand reality.
you will understand neither your mind nor reality.

If you try and understand reality without using your mind.
you will understand both your mind and reality.

— Bodhidharma

    • Thanks a lot Craig! Yes, Truth cannot grasped intellectually. It can only be experienced directly and then it cannot be told because it is beyond the duality of intellectual expression. How to explain the taste of chocolate to somebody who never tasted it by himself. 🙂

    • Thanks 🙂 I have taken the picture in Mayo (Erris Head, Faulmore). This little part of landscape definitely resembles the Burren, but it was only a small plateau.
