Playing with words, or pointing to what is real?

Does knowledge, real knowledge, not happen when the ego or mind and its desires is not interfering? Does feeling, love not happen when all desires, fears and anxieties thus centered have abated together with the mind, their abode? And is experience, the fullness of experience, not the union, or unity of love and knowledge?

One cannot get away from experience, or experiencing, and if what is experienced is tinged with melancholy, sadness, or frustration, it is because love and knowledge are their unacknowledged background, which is being itself, life itself.

Knowing-being-loving (chit-sat-ananda) – one word says it all: happiness, or joy.

The “experiences” that mind  yearns for and creates, stem from self-centered desire; they are  like a mirage in a desert as compared with the coolness of a pond.
