My practice is focussed on the mysteries of God far more than the secrets of God. What’s the difference? A secret is something knowable, but known to only a few insiders. By way of contrast, a mystery is something that’s simply unknowable. In practice it is like this. Knowing secrets only inflates my ego. Knowing mysteries, however, humbles me. The more deeply I come to know God as unknowable, even with all I know, the more I am overcome by awe. It’s a divine darkness that lights up the world.
