The light, the flight

We had worked so late into the evening. Scattered papers across the table told of Dad's patient efforts to convey some basic trigonometry concepts. And then, suddenly, I saw them. A certain kind of illumination took place and everything fitted together. The problem, and its solution, came clearly into focus. The confusion, the uncertainty and frustration, seemed literally to rush away.

You've probably experienced similar enlightenment. In an instant the location of a misplaced item came to mind; or the route out of some difficult circumstance emerged brightly in thought. In a way, such inspirations hint at a deeply spiritual event that takes place in consciousness when, in the midst of a staggering problem, the light of the Christ, revealing man's true relationship to God, suddenly dawns and the trouble vanishes.
