the visually impaired describing an elephant

There is this ancient parable about six blind men trying to describe an elephant.  As they each touched a different part of the elephant they experienced different things and began to quarrel amongst themselves.  The town’s wise man intervened,  “each was partly in the right and all were in the wrong ''.  This blog reflects the different author’s individual discoveries about the  Unseen.  Accepting that we are all wrong but knowing that each one has a unique angle of experience of the Indescribable. Since we know that we are attempting to describe Love, our highest calling is to give each other loving space to be wrong. We would invite you on this journey with us.
