beyond reason

November 3, 2015

Men craving holiness
use words
to create images of their gods,
and confuse
faith
with
their pride
in their own inventions.
The Taoist sage
shuns words
and
trusts silence,
knowing full well
the Tao is beyond the reach of concepts.

~ Jos Slabbert
(The Tao is Tao, 139)
