Buddha often mentioned "inconceivable" in Sutras;
As concepts and ideas arise deviation has occurred.
How would one get hold of limitless Dharmadhatu?
Abiding in not knowing would fuse one into reality.


In the Sutras the description "inconceivable" springs forth here and there all over the place; it points out directly that matters are beyond human thinking. We are used to attempting to define matters through concepts and words while overlooking the great distance between them and the abundance in mismatches. If one could realize that what are unknown to us and what are beyond our controls are much, much more than what little knowledge or right views that one could gain in this transient life, and therefore choose to abide in simple-mindedness, then, at some inconceivable juncture, it could happen that one would merge into the original real situation.
