The Truth is Ineffable

but it is the Truth.

Words don't teach—only experience teaches, and there are many tools and practices that have been around for thousands of years, at least, that can inspire such experiences.

Just reading these studies without having some personal experience to resonate with, can make it difficult in "updating" prior beliefs.

I have had deep meditation experiences that I could only previously liken to the use of hallucinogenic interventions. How could sitting in absolute silence, in as little thought as possible, be such a rich thought-provoking experience?

And how difficult has it been to distract us from this and fill our heads with noise and negative thoughts and feelings? Clearly, not that difficult.
