Accepting the Mystery
Jesus’s birth is a mystery.
One day’s worth of oil burning for eight days is a mystery.
Fundamentally, the entire universe and all of life is a mystery.
It’s helpful to have minds that can filter and contain the mystery enough for us to be able to navigate the world effectively, at least most of the time.
It’s also helpful to let those minds go and surrender to the mystery at times. There is both creativity and joy in that.
Wishing everyone joyous holidays!
