Being out of words

Recently I had some Zoom calls with people who are "living transcendence" without making any song and dance about it - "hidden mystics" I call them. And some of them were not affiliated with any tradition, path or teaching and didn't have a ready-made language to describe how they perceived themselves and the world.

When I explored with them or interviewed them about their experience / state of being / understanding, a few times they came to a point where, no matter how much they tried, they just couldn't find words to describe it.

The expression on their faces at those points was a mixture of helplessness and self-irony - beautiful self-aware vulnerability.

Such an expression communicated to me clearly and doubtlessly their experience / state of being / understanding.

I think they were quite relieved and happy when I told them that.
