A mystery means that a reality is so big that our minds cannot completely surround it. A mystery means that the more we learn something, the more we find that we have yet to learn. It is like walking toward the horizon. Even if we walk for our whole lives, we’ll never arrive at the horizon, but that doesn’t mean that we are not moving. Each day brings us new landscapes, different towns, and encounters with people we didn’t know before. A mystery is much the same: we are moving toward an horizon that cannot be reached, but that continues to yield new wonders to the mind. Mystery is not an invitation to blissful ignorance but rather to never-ending exploration.
