Insight Comes Slowly

Emily Dickinson The truth must dazzle gradually or all the world would be blind.
Our process of gaining real insight comes so slowly. There is no way to force it, for that would be like “overexposure” of a photograph. We often wish that the truth would come and that all would be revealed. Perhaps this would be like the experience of Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita when Krishna reveals his “true form” to Arjuna and Arjuna gets completely overwhelmed and cannot handle it. So as much as we think we would like to have everything revealed to us at once, we must be grateful that we really can only glimpse the truth in small flashes, day by day, so that we do not get blinded by the light.
