‘Joy of ascension –
one needs to have become very quiet inside,
to hear the soft sound of this word at all.
Joy lives in quietness and in incomprehensibility.
Indeed, comprehensible this joy is not.
But the comprehensible never brings joy.
It is the comprehensible and yet the true,
the real, the alive that ignites joy.
Therefore, real joy is always something incomprehensible
for others, as well as for the one
who experiences it.’
