In terms of spiritual questions, people often feel that they have to understand through intellect. This kind of understanding is sometimes a big problem. If you actually understand then this is not a problem – but what is it called when we think we understand, but do not understand at all? It is called misunderstanding. The problem is that when we think we understand—but in reality do not understand—we come to the end of our questioning. We close down.

Worries concerning the melodramas of day-to-day life serve no purpose. To fret in this futile manner is to be like the child who is delighted at having built a sand castle, and distraught when the sea washes it away
