Intellectualisation Blocks Direct Experience

Intellectualisation blocks direct, spontaneous experience which is beyond words. If you want to know how an apple tastes, eat it! Intellectualisation is trying too hard at something that is so simple.

The esoteric is intuitive, while the exoteric is a commentary, which is hearsay and rumour (from Latin, meaning noise) that creates doubt.

In sport, thinking is too slow and intrusive.
The thinker who doubts always loses.

Intuition is the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for reasoning. We can only realise something through the personal experience of first-hand, spontaneous knowledge, rather than second-hand hearsay.

Those who follow can never be victorious.

The purpose of life is to enrich understanding
towards our next moment, or incarnation.
