No Words

If it is possible, live an experience and don't fix it with any words, because that will make it narrow.

You are sitting... it is a silent evening. The sun has gone, and the stars have started appearing. Just be. Don't even say, "This is beautiful," because the moment you say that it is beautiful, it is no longer the same. By saying beautiful, you are brining in the past, and all the experiences that you said were beautiful have colored the word.

Why bring in the past? The present is so vast, and the past is so narrow. Why look from a hole in the wall when you can come out and look at the whole sky?

So try not to use words, but if you have to, then be very choosy about them, because each word has a nuance of its own. Be very poetic about it.
