The paradox

It is the paradox arises where a fissure in the mind that allows you to perceive, even for a single instant, the Real, that which makes it possible to take account of reality. Writes Emilio J. Gomez.

Krishna

Anything that does not exist may never manifest itself.
Nothing of what there is left never exist.

Those who are able to see through, can solve this enigma.
Baghavad Gita, The song of the Lord. Chap. II, Vers. 16

"Those who are able to see through... can solve the enigma." How curious it is that same verse that the problem also offer the solution! "See through...". About what? Through what should to do to achieve the solution that addresses the problem of existence, being or not being, of life and death?

See through the different wrappers that according to tradition make up the three bodies of the human being? See through things to touch the very heart of them? See through the packaging of personality to discover the essence of the person, the soul, Atman? See through the rough to find subtle?

It is the paradox arises where a fissure in the mind that allows you to perceive, even for a single instant, the Real, that which makes it possible to take account of reality. But the mind does not like the paradox, and prefers the concrete abstraction, as in the concrete there is no uncertainty or doubt. Pity! It is in the uncertainty and doubt where it appears the possibility of the discovery of the real thing.

All the traditions of the world always recommends the reading of sacred texts. Maybe it's because this unique trait, pace than usual, which is to find the paradox between their lines. To understand the incomprehensible becomes necessary contradiction and ambiguity. When the mind is confronted with this, you can't solve it... What's left, then? Or better expressed, who gets there to understand?
