“By dint of accumulating non-mysteries and monopolizing non-meanings, life inspires more dread than death:

it is life which is the Great Unknown.

E.M. Cioran

 

 

We are Life. We are not outside of it. What we are, it is.

We have been on the shore of 'knowing' too long. It is high time for us to leap into the river of unknowing, and let the miracle of god flow through us, and as us, for, as Thomas Jeffers pronounces, “...‘God’ will be unseeing as well as unseen till he has an ‘I’ who can watch and act for him.”

As well, the kun byed rgyal po’i mdo, again in the voice of the Creator, states: “Oh great bodhisattva, listen! [My] own being [even] in its variety is not two, but also each part in itself is not...conceptualizable. ...I Myself, the All-Creating Sovereign, teach My own being after I caused it to become apparent. ...The individual actuation lets you see the whole. In such a way My own being is also taught. ...If I, the All-Creating, am not met then all...beings living in this...world will not understand their own being nor their actuating force. ...Therefore they will not see that I, the All-Creating Sovereign and their own being are not different. …For this reason, you must teach My own being.”

It is we who must return God’s own vision to the wonders of God. Such was the realization that would lead Kazantzakis to put the following words into the mouth of Christ: “This was...a good moment to reveal the word which the Lord confided in me and to awaken the God that sleeps within these men and women who destroy themselves in the pursuit of vain cares... [For] great things happen when God mixes with man. Without man, God would have no mind on this earth to reflect upon his creatures intelligibly...”

To become conscious of our own mysteriousness, is to become conscious of God’s mysteriousness, for there is no difference. All is mystery.
