"Every single instant of every single moment that you carry with you... you’re engaging with Mystery. That’s the 'not knowing' I'm talking about....[If] your drive, if what calls you here is that aspect, then that’s the only reason to do this as far as I'm concerned ....because this is too hard. It's too hard to even respond to that call... The mystics forever and ever have been responding to this call and I think people that find themselves in this kind of arena are responding to that call. And it's nothing you can talk about. Poets have been trying to write about it, ...people have been trying to talk about it, but you really can't talk about it. So, that's the Mystery."
