no oasis

The timeless can never be experienced,
can never be grasped, contained,
much less given expression to by any man.

That beaten track will lead you nowhere.
There is no oasis situated yonder.
You are stuck with the mirage.

U.G. Krishnamurti

from Thought is Your Enemy

found in A Taste of Life by Mahesh Bhatt

(Penguin Books India 2009)
