Taste it yourself

Before the visitor embarked upon discipleship he wanted assurance from the Master,

“Can you teach me the goal of human life?”

“I cannot.”

“Or at least its meaning?”

“I cannot.”

“Can you indicate to me the nature of death and of life beyond the grave?”

“I cannot.”

The visitor walked away in scorn. The disciples were dismayed that their Master had been shown up in a poor light.

Said the Master soothingly,

“Of what use is it to comprehend life’s nature and life’s meaning if you have never tasted it? I’d rather you ate your pudding than speculated on it.”

CAUTION:  TAKE THE TALES IN TINY DOSES — ONE OR TWO AT A TIME. AN OVERDOSE WILL LOWER THEIR POTENCY.

2nd Part: “Direct Experience” – Knowledge can take you to some place, then you have to taste it yourself… directly! Wisdom is just not the intellectual information, it is practical application of your mastery (maturity of your inner life) in outer bubbling cheerful life!!
