If you try to do so, they cease to be truths.
You can speak about everything else, or just to speak.
But you cannot speak about those truths, what truly matters.
The moment you do, they don’t matter anymore.
The most authentic truths are those you cannot speak or hear about.
They abide in what you truly feel right now, your unique and rare awareness, which nobody is able to describe, including you.
These truths reside beyond the peak of discomfort and embarrassment, which is also the climax of comfort and courage.
If you spoke about it nobody would accept it, and you would not accept it if somebody spoke about it.
You can speak about something else, nothing to do with the above, so that at least you can say something.
When you feel you have nothing to say, write or hear, then this can be a sign that those truths are near.
When this happens, although we can pretend to be far away, we are very close, almost united.
