The distillation process emphasizes the tastes and aromas.
The extraneous evaporates, leaving only the essential essence behind.
Less is more.
The same is true with our thoughts.
When we distill them down to the essence, we concentrate the flavors, textures, tastes, and aromas.
We let others read between the lines.
Quote: When we relinquish or renounce the extraneous, we are left with the essential, which cannot be lost. ~ Lama Surya Das
Aah . . . that’s better!
Which do you prefer . . . reading a treatise where everything is spelled out, often in excruciating detail? Or a more broadbrushed approach which challenges you to put on your thinking cap and think?
