The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.
— Albert Einstein

My vision of the scientist is the one trying to unlock the mysteries of the universe. This is a scientist's passion — the search for truth, for knowledge, for control. And here comes Dr. Einstein to tell us that what is mysterious is also beautiful; that in fact , it is the most beautiful of all experiences we can have.

There is beauty in not knowing, in being awash in the mystery of being. Can you feel it? Can you let go long enough to experience mystery as beautiful, as nonthreatening, not scary? Can you allow yourself the abandonment that requires?

Lean back with your eyes closed, your arms opened wide. Be there with all of life's mysteries. Welcome them into your life.
