Battling Language and Thought

The battle against language and thoughts is uncannily familiar to me but should be no stranger to any of us. We find ourselves stranded and abandoned upon a vast and brutal desert of simple words, signs and symbols; with nothing other than the shifting sands of inconsistent logic and communication that lie at our feet from which to attempt to build our palace or castle of self and life or emancipation and happiness. We are (all) trapped inside a broken system of knowledge and communication we need to overcome but have nothing other than this faulty and incomplete system itself with which to effect our escape to emotional and psychological freedom. This is a paradox of cognition and language and only the smartest ever survive this labyrinth without falling into despair.
