Going Deeper

I want to try to understand a little better how John Haught's notion of depth helps me to think about The Divine.  No matter how deep we go into ourselves and others and nature, reality still evades full disclosure.  There is an inexhaustible depth beneath the surface of our impressions.
This inexhaustible depth of existence is one of the ways that we can think about God.  This depth of existence promises to give more substance to our lives  than what we can find on the surface. It is a kind of ultimate ground that is trustworthy.
(This is a feeble attempt to express Haught's reasoning.)
