Ideology and Meaning

"As soon as you look at the world through an ideology
you are finished. No reality fits ideology. Life is
beyond that.

That is why people are always searching for a meaning
to life.

But life has no meaning; it cannot have meaning
because meaning is a formula; meaning is something
that makes sense to the mind.

Every time you make sense out of reality, you bump
into something that destroys the sense you made.

Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning.
Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery
and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind".

Anthony de Mello, SJ
