Spiritual. Transcendental. Serenity. Prayer. Mystical. Consciousness. Faith. These are words we have all heard, but what do they mean in “real” life? These words seem nonsensical to some people. Beyond our current understanding is a grand fullness which is the unseen essential. The unseen essential is everything yet described, which science feverishly works daily to uncover. If you don’t believe in God, then the God concept is simply a great placeholder for everything unexplained and that we don’t know, which is exponentially more than what we do know. The unseen essential can be felt in your bones, in your teeth and the hair on your neck. It whispers in the hollows of your chest and gut. The unseen essential is the enormity of mystery in every element of you; from your physiology to your psychology — it is all which is perplexingly, indescribably and awe-inspiringly — you. Beyond the narrow sliver of the electromagnetic spectrum that our crude instruments can detect and “sense,” there is a vast circular continuum of greater unknowns awaiting our discovery. We know there is more so we are open to more, and this is a good attitude of openness for both science and spirituality. Like the mysteries of the deep ocean or space, there are mysteries in the depths of consciousness. Mysticism and her metaphors reach to understand the enigma of self and universe; like poetry — spirituality bridges the gap between the forms and the formless, for spirituality can pull cogent meaning from the veiled truths beyond our perception. Spirituality strives to touch those unknown forms the mind cannot yet grasp. Each person is a vast territory of undiscovered mystery as nebulous and uncharted as the deepest oceans and expanses of space. Life itself is a universe of mystery. Only an open mind and heart can receive knowledge of the great mysteries of life and self. You can hear the whispers if you are open to hear and if you listen closely.
