What is there to say?

What is there to say that has not been already said by some one? And whatever I say is but a tiny fraction of the truth. So, see beyond words including these words!

Yes, I agree. The words themselves are not, perhaps, so useful, though some are very good pointers with which we can, as you say, look beyond the words and beyond what is already grasped as mental understanding. We come here for many reasons, but unless we are looking beyond the words, I believe we're simply avoiding that which we are seeking.

I think their usefulness can vary, depending on where someone's at on the so-called spiritual quest. And of course, it depends a lot on their content. As certain words can strengthen and encourage ego, so also certain words can weaken and undermine it, prepare one for awakening, to go beyond words.

I say this from five years of experience with "spiritual words", followed by five years without them: Something in the mind was undermined, a seed was planted that took five years to bear fruit. Of course, I did quit seeding altogether at some point, rather than continuing to over-plant the ground ;-).
