When theology holds us back.

Our thoughts are not that which is called God.
Our words are not that which is called God.
Our theology is not that which is called God.
What is beyond? Beyond thoughts, words, and theology? Even though these might be like bread crumbs along the trail guiding us nearer to what is beyond, they cannot and will not help us to arrive, to see, to wonder, to know.
In fact, like Buddha's raft, although they serve a good purpose, at some point they will have to be left with gratitude.
