organizing the sky

One of the two-edged delight/horrors of spiritual endeavor is that, like the sky, spiritual life cannot be organized. As a result, there are vast libraries and wise men galore: Where intellect and emotion simply cannot tell a credible or satisfying tale, what a relief to enter a land where paltry bureaucracies and explanations fall flat.

Organization passing as understanding is ... so tiring, even if it makes socially-acceptable sense. Organize the sky? What nitwit made that stuff up?

Yes, it's a relief to stop organizing the sky.

But that doesn't mean it can't piss people off something fierce.
