“The mysterious stirs a reaction: an ‘ah!’ This ‘ah!’ is not an ‘ah ha!’ or ‘Eureka’—that is, an exclamation of discovering an answer. The ‘ah!’ response to mystery is more a dumbfounded recognition and appreciation of an inexplicable power or presence … For Shinto, though, the point is to accept the awesome as part of the world in which we live. To deny or try to eradicate the wondrous mystery is no less than to run away from home.” – “Shinto: The Way Home”, Thomas Kasulis
