    What is holding it all together is a force more than material reality, beyond time and space, beyond quantum reality. It is a force that is eternal and infinite, with no beginning and no end. It is a force called by many names including Consciousness, Eternal Source, Great Spirit, Being, Yahweh, Brahman, and God, each a word pointing at something that is undefinable and incomprehensible. All that is is a one piece delicate filigree, and the challenge for us is to see it as such and not disintegrate it by our words or action. Alan Watts said we divide in thought what is one in nature. It is we who fracture the delicate filigree. I have grown in my ability to at times look at fractured order through a lens of unity. I know that explanation accomplishes nothing and is frequently stultifying, so I'm seldom tempted to lock the delicate filigree of life in explanation. Rumi stated that silence is the language of God, and all else is a poor substitute. I prefer awe regarding the delicate filigree of life.
