MAN IS LOST because of words, symbols, language. You are not lost in reality, you are lost in a linguistic dream – because the reality is always there in front of you, but you are not always there in front of reality. You are somewhere else, always somewhere else, because you are a mind and a mind means something gone astray.
A mind means now you are not looking at that which is, you are thinking about it. The ’about’ is the problem, the ’about’ is the way to miss reality. Philosophy is the way to miss reality. The moment you think about it, the target will never be reached.
What is thinking? It is a substitute. If you know love, you never think about it. There is no need to think about it. If you don’t know love, you think about it – really, you don’t think about anything else.
How can you know love through thinking? – because it is an existential experience. It is not a theory, it is not speculative. To know it, you have to be it…
