*Author's note: This is an unfinished piece that I'm posting to the blog because I'm interested in hearing others' ideas about it.
Some people are afraid to write down their thoughts because, like many things, the written word can always be misinterpreted. That is why, I believe, many of the historical religious leaders preferred not to write down their own teachings. The teachings of most of the world's main religions are written into scriptures by later scholars who were former students or disciples of the great leaders.
The written language is somewhat restrictive when we attempt to communicate the greatest ideas. Perhaps it is because there are many ideas and objects in this world which we have not yet given a name. I am not against writing, but I believe the best way to communicate large ideas is to physically meet with another person. To hold an active conversation with another human who responds to our beliefs allows us to clear misconceptions easily.
