    1. And to say that about the Tao is to speak of the Tao in words. 🙂 And naturally, the words are not the real itself. There is another phrase you may have heard: “The One about whom naught be said.” And yet that phrase also contradicts itself since it says something about the One.

      1. Hi Marie, I suppose “total silence” would be a solution if that phrase is pointing to the right state of consciousness. But in the misapplied advaita (non-dualistic) philosophy “total silence” might be a phrase that, in the philosopher’s mind, pointed to a relatively lifeless abstract concept.
