True mysteries

"The true mysteries of life accomplish themselves so softly, with so easy and assured a grace, so frank an acceptance of our breeding, striving, dying, and unresting world, that the unimaginative natural man -- all agog for the marvellous -- is hardly startled by their daily and radiant revelation of infinite wisdom and love...the Transcendent Life for which we crave is revealed... not on some remote and arid plane of being, in the cunning explanations of philosophy; but in the normal acts of our diurnal experience, suddenly made significant for us."

-- Evelyn Underhill, Mysticism
