To my Experientialist friends
You say that all the religion come from the experience of the Holy
That is true
Without such experience, we do not have religion.
Do you know what?
However, we need words and reasons to explain that experience.
Some call the divine The One, some calls the Unknowable
Some talk about the feeling of absolute dependence
These are all examples of frames and interpretations of the original experience.
Like the Zen Buddhism
You do not want to use words
You just want to sit there and be one with the Ultimate
You need to tell me whether you experience some evil spirit or true God
And also how you know the difference
If you cannot tell me in words
You have to say that you just know it because you feel it
Then it is just you and no community can come from it
Don’t you want to share it with others though?
