Letter: 15/Thought Can Never Come to the Cosmic Whole

        beloved bhakti,

    Love. Thought is divisive.
    It divides adinfinitum.
    So thought can never come to the total--to the WHOLE.
    And, the whole is.
    While the parts are not--or  they are only for the mind.
    And if there is no mind then there are no parts.
    With the mind and because of the mind the ONE becomes
many--or appears so.
    And with the mind, and through the mind, to conceive the
One is impossible.
    Of course, it can think about the One, but that one is nothing
but putting together all the parts.
    And that one is quite different from the ONE which is.
    The one which is conceptualized by the mind is just a
mathematical construct.
    It is not a living whole.
    It is not organic.
    And unless one experiences the Cosmos as an organic Whole
one has not known anything at all.
    This is not possible with thought.
    But this is possible with NO-THOUGHT
