TYPES OF GARDENING

 

“I came into the unknown

and stayed there unknowing

rising beyond all science.

 

I did not know the door

but when I found the way,

unknowing where I was,

I learned enormous things,

but what I felt I cannot say,

for I remained unknowing,

rising beyond all science.

 

It was the perfect realm

of holiness and peace.

In deepest solitude

I found the narrow way:

a secret giving such release

that I was stunned and stammering,

rising beyond all science.

LET US KNOW

Just a small leave tumbling ...

I was so far inside,

so dazed and far away

my senses were released

from feelings of my own.

My mind had found a surer way:

a knowledge of unknowing,

rising beyond all science.

 

And he who does arrive

collapses as in sleep,

for all he knew before

now seems a lowly thing,

and so his knowledge grows so deep

that he remains unknowing,

rising beyond all science.

 

The higher he ascends

the darker is the wood;

it is the shadowy cloud

that clarified the night,

and so the one who understood

remains always unknowing,

rising beyond all science.

 

This knowledge by unknowing

is such a soaring force

that scholars argue long

but never leave the ground.

Their knowledge always fails the source:

to understand unknowing,

rising beyond all science.

 

This knowledge is supreme

crossing a blazing height;

though formal reason tries

it crumbles in the dark,

but one who would control the night

by knowledge of unknowing

will rise beyond all science.

 

And if you wish to hear:

the highest science leads

to an ecstatic feeling

of the most holy Being;

and from his mercy comes his deed:

to let us stay unknowing,

rising beyond all science.”

 

San Juan de la Cruz
