Into The Mystery

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
- Albert Einstein

To know what man can BE is to know that God IS.

You needn't waste your time trying to prove whether God exists.

Man -- yourself -- is the evidence you seek.

You only need to discover the Real Man behind the mask.

Happy the man who identifies firstly with his spiritual substance who thus always remains faithful to himself for he is no longer a distorted mask unaware of his true scope, as is the man enclosed only in accidentality.

To be in touch with the mystery is to be in tune with Truth.

God's name is Mercy. That's where the Great Mystery begins.

"The mind of modern man is a curious mixture of decayed Calvinism and diluted Buddhism; and he expresses his philosophy without knowing that he holds it. Catholics say what it is natural for us to say; but we know what we are saying; therefore it is assumed that we are saying it for effect. He says what it is natural for him to say; but he does not know what he is saying, still less why he is saying it. He is just as partisan; just as much depending on one doctrinal system as distinct from another. But he’s taken it for granted so often that he’s forgotten what it is.

So his literature does not seem to him partisan, even when it is.

But our literature seems to him propagandist, even when it isn't."

- G. K. Chesterton

More indepth illuminations and insights surrounding the mystery can be discovered at my favorite daily blog site One Cosmos - Wandering, Wondering and Blundering Into The Mystery.

Full credit here today to Gagdad Bob for his brilliant insights, immutable Raccoon Logic, and cosmic supernova revelations which inform most of the thrust of today's "mystery" musings.

And now, I hear another Bob a-knockin'...think I'll let him in...

Well, it's easy to know what's going on with you, Frank I just gotta read your blog.

And you hit one out of the park with the Jan one, about the industry getting a clue.

Way to go!
