Often we think if we can name something we understand it. Thinking about things reflecting on what is what can be helpful. However the ability to name something is not the same as understanding it.

There is an ancient story of a teacher who encountered a boy carrying a light. The teacher asked where does the light come from. The boy blew out the light and said, ‘ Now tell me where it has gone?’

Sometimes understanding happens when we stop pause and let the whole experience of what is happening be with us.
