Emptiness – Alan Watts

“You have to realize to what an enormous extent we are all utterly bewitched by words, and are trying all our lives long to solve problems which only words create. Because the human being has gotten himself into a very funny bind. Having developed words, which are enormously¬†useful, obviously, we at the same time pay a price for them. We are simultaneously helped and bewitched by words. So you could say that being under¬†Maya, under¬†illusion, is also being spellbound. And enchanted. Because when you lay a spell… you do it by spelling! You see, you make a magic with words.”
