    true. labels take out the awe of things. makes me think that the reason masters admonish their students to "be silent" is coz when you describe something sacred, the words used as definitions/labels/descriptions tend to limit something too awesome for language. those who really "know" are reverently quiet.

    We cannot define GOD but we can attribute GOD in terms of essence such as Consciousness, Infinite Intelligence, Universal Energy who is the GOD all in all.

    For me,
    an attempt to define God
    is like an attempt to define the universe.
