Intellectual Bliss & Its Desires


     “Name the colors, blind the eye” is an old Zen saying, illustrating that the intellect’s habitual ways of branding and labeling creates a terrible experiential loss by displacing the vibrant, living reality with a steady stream of labels. It is the same way with space, which is solely the conceptual mind’s way of clearing its throat, of pausing between identified symbols." Gives a new spin on an old & tattered "Ignorance is bliss" saying, eh? You can spit in my chai, I don't care.
