East of Eden

A myth is a story that encodes but does not necessarily explain a universal human experience.”
Richard Holloway, former bishop (of Edinburgh)

All we know is stories we think are true.

Mistaking all we know for all that is puts us somewhere east of Eden.

All we have to do is see that only in the mind is what we know what is.

Beyond the mind, nothing is what it’s thought to be.

Reality is not a story.

Reality is beyond words, beyond thought, beyond the mind.
