     Their mystery is:
          God
          my only One
          in them
          my heart
          will be worthy.
And their mystery is
     Enough! Enough! Enough!

-- from Meditation and Kabbalah, by Aryeh Kaplan

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

A moment of ecstasy, a heart overflowing in its encounter with the mystery. The tongue rebels in the mouth at trying to formulate words. The whole awareness wants to simply watch in silence.
