It is not “reasonable” and it’s okay that it’s not reasonable. We are not trying to be reasonable. There is a place for both the reasonable and the unreasonable/intuitive. As I write this, I realize that I have written this before. Perhaps many times. I am too easily drawn back into the need to be scientific and rational; to have a “sensible” (ie: perceptible as real or material) worldview and to discount my own experience(s).

The Middle Pillar on the Tree of Life is a useful allegory (or anagogy) here – to know the extremes and keep to the middle, to understand from where on the tree you are perceiving/understanding. It is okay to be soft.  It is okay to set aside my humorous, cynical, ironic armour.  It will still be there when I need it.
