Mystics of all traditions agree that Ultimate Reality, what some call God, is a mystery beyond conceptuality. They agree because they speak out of experience and intuition, which takes time and meditation.
But even very busy people receive this gift, this experience, again and again. For instance, a mother who cares for her children all day long has no time for meditation. She looks at her child with love, and the child looks at its mother – that is already an encounter and experience out of which bursts this deeper ground beyond all naming. That is a touch of the Unutterable.
