The word joy is different from the experience of joy – Swami Sukhabodhananda

Exploring oneself is an ongoing process. It is great fun and an adventure.
A lot of us have conceptional knowledge. The word is not the thing. The word ‘love’ is not love. Verbal knowledge is superficial, but to get at the meaning of the word is existential. The word ‘joy’ is different from the experience of joy.
Let me give an example: a student asks the master, you denounce knowledge and at the same time you utter pearls of wisdom. Why is it so?
Master answers – I prefer seeds of wisdom for when the seed is planted it grows, whereas when a pearl is planted it does not grow.
