parabolicly seeing

Matthew 13:34-35 All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. (35) This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”

The sun is good. Ask anyone in London. But how to take it in? We can’t stare directly at it. We could be safe and study it through roundabout means, but something of the glory is lost. Essentially we have to look just to the side of the sun to take in its glory. The sun is good!

Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—

Success in Circuit lies

Too bright for our infirm Delight

The Truth’s superb surprise

As Lightning to the Children eased

With explanation kind

The Truth must dazzle gradually

Or every man be blind—

                              Emily Dickinson
