To go further
- A marine blue rabbit looks through a slot in the church door. He has a partial revelation.
- Another is inside but walks against the walls very preciously. He has not yet had the total revelation either because he does not seem to know how to love and how to open up to others.
- And he who invites the other rabbit to enter, he is the one sufficiently at ease « inside » and « outside». His feet and heart are inside, his head and ears outside. He invites the one outside to enter, coming towards him. The "mystery in 3D" is that which is sought , discovered and lived . As long as one is not anchored in ones life , it is only in 2D ...
- The Revelation is accomplished in Jesus. In the Church, we speak of "mystery". The mystery is not a secret thing that we will never understand and therefore must not even try to think on it. Au contraire, the mystery is something that we will never finish to understand but can discover always more. Take the example of the universe. We discover things always more fabulous, science allows us to go further, to explore the mystery under different facets. It is the same for the mystery of man; we have never finished to go to the deepest depths of understanding. We could say "in any case, it is a mystery, we will never discover the totality, so useless to look". Or, we could say "it is extraordinary, look further still, there is always something to discover". Therein lies the mystery of God. We will never cease to discover but we can go deeper and deeper still. And I, have I given up ? Do I also say (as I have already heard) "That is the way it is, it is a mystery, don't think on it". Should reason actually resign ?
