Genuine scriptures have deep meanings hidden in their letters and structures. The true meaning of a scripture can only be known by understanding its original version. For the Western scriptures — the books of Moses, the Bible, the Gospels of Jesus — this means we need to look at the Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and other ancient languages.
"We should not mistake the Truth with opinions. Many think that the Truth is this or that, or that the Truth is within this or that book, or within this or that belief or idea, etc. Whosoever wants to experience the Truth should not mistake beliefs, ideas, opinions and theories with that which is the Truth. We must experience the Truth in a direct, practical and real manner; this is only possible in the stillness and silence of the mind, and this is achieved by means of meditation."
