The transparent veil of words : Preparing for the Ultimate Nakedness
Words are a barrier, a veil between you and your truth. Make them as transparent as you can. Even as tenuous bridges, as between lovers, words merely confirm the pesence of a chasm which only silence can fill. But bridges and barriers are necessary because you can not stand direct exposure to truth. Words, by providing us a thin clothing, prepare us for the ultimate nakedness. But keep them transparent so that they do not block your view of truth , but keep them around anyway or you will die of sudden exposure.
