'Within the mystery of life there is the infinite darkness of the night sky lit by distant orbs of fire, the cobbled skin of an orange that releases it's fragrance to our touch, the unfathomable depth of the eyes of our lover. No creation story, no religious system can fully describe or explain this richness and depth. Mystery is so every-present that no one can know for certain what will happen one hour from now.

It does not matter whether you have a religion or are an agnostic believing in nothing, you can only appreciate (without knowing or understanding) the mysteries of life.’

- Jack Kornfield: After the Ecstasy the Laundry: How the Heart Grows Wise on the Spiritual Path.
