The mysteries explore not only the nature of reality in all states of being but also the all-important whys of it all with answers that satisfy head, heart and intuition.

One thing that is as obvious as it is certain is that the cosmos is dynamic, it changes. The changes are orderly and progressive. The term for the orderly, progressive and purposeful changes in the creation is evolution. Evolution is a sophisticated way of saying “getting better”.
