Eckhart Tolle - Words

“Words, no matter whether they are vocalized and made into sounds or remain unspoken as thoughts, can cast an almost hypnotic spell upon you.

You easily lose yourself in them, become hypnotized into implicitly believing that when you have attached a word to something, you know what it is.

The fact is: you don’t know what it is. You have only covered up the mystery with a label. Everything, a bird, a tree, even a simple stone, and certainly a human being, is ultimately unknowable. This is because it has unfathomable depth…

Underneath the surface appearance, everything is not only connected with everything else, but also with the Source of all life out of which it came.”
