When something is ineffable,
what can communicate what it really means?
Ineffable is a term often applied to the Absolute,
the unspeakable name of YHWH,
the Tao which cannot be named,
and the genuine Oneness experience.
There are no words, no thoughts,
no concepts that can convey the ineffable.
Words can be written to describe the indescribable --
dancing all around the essence of it --
but there will never be the satisfying moment
of expressing the inexpressible
in a perfectly crafted phrase,
a skillfully rendered artwork,
or the most magnificent music.
Meanings regarding the un-nameable
may be communicated
over numbers, symbols, imagery,
or geometric shapes,
but if they are interpreted
only by an analytical mind,
their depths will not be plumbed,
and 'what it is' will not be fully known.
Still, the Great Beyond can be intuitively felt or sensed,
experienced, and communed with.
As Rumi said,
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
On soul journeys, my soul lies down in that grass.
After touching the cosmos of consciousness,
I have realized it cannot be captured,
conveyed, or communicated
over the intellect or physical senses.
It is the Great Beyond,
and beyond all manufactured attempts.
There is a feeling in certain sensitively
created pieces of art or music,
or masterfully penned poetry
(a la Rumi), over which the sensitive viewer,
reader or listener can sometimes connect
and be deeply touched.
That type of intuitive feeling
(distinct from gut feeling or emotional feeling),
well cultivated, is the medium of the language
of the cosmos of consciousness,
the One Being, the True Self,
who and what I most intimately am.
In that connective feeling, I can feel home.
I am, a fractal focus of the One Being, a localization,
of non-localized consciousness.
By shifting the focus of my awareness,
'I' can be a localized fractal within the Whole,
or the 'I Am' of the Whole itself.
