The Exoteric And The Esoteric
The exoteric = general discussion.
The esoteric = direct experience in silent awareness.
Words are a generalisation.
The direct experience is the silent essence beyond words.
In spring, we watch the lambs bouncing around in an crazy exuberance – pure esoteric joy!
Slowly, they learn just to follow the herd – pure exoteric murmuring.
The exoteric is very clever.
The esoteric isn’t clever.
