This reminds me of a little ditty I ran across in one of Alan Watts' books:

The man behind the microscope
Has this advice for you
Please don't ask me what it is
Rather ask: what does it do?

Watts commented, somewhere in his extensive body of writings and recordings, that his "shtick" (if you will) in life was really all about "trying to say what cannot possibly be said."

I pretty much do the same thing. But then again, don't we all?

This is good,

"Likewise, don't worry about understanding the Meaning of Life or Ultimate Reality or Highest Truth or Your Inner Essence. Just do whatever you're doing. Think whatever you're thinking. Feel whatever you're feeling. Experience whatever you're experiencing."

----Embrace the mystery.....
