Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions.
All mystical writing really is instructions. It is not an attempt to describe the universe, to describe God, or to describe other realities. Every mystic knows that cannot possibly be done. The word mysticism, from the Greek muo, means silence, mum's the word, shut up. (I should talk...)
That's yoga. Shut up...shut up and listen.
— Alan Watts
