When the Student is Ready, the Master Appears

So there are those out there that keep the Perpetual Lamp of Wisdom burning.... but who protect the Lamp from those who wouldn't know how to handle the Truth.

Where do we go if we have been touched by Truth, but want more? And how do we learn to help others?

The Light of Wisdom is to bright for those who cannot handle the Truth.
It blinds their way so they wander endlessly in darkness.

The Light of Wisdom will reveal new paths to an ever deeper understanding of Truth.

We learn how to help others by first learning to help ourselves.

Truth is a dangerous thing. Keep it to yourself. ;)
Don't share it. Don't die for it. Don't kill for it.

Could be coincidence, but maybe not.

Seems like the Truth is a pretty safe thing to just throw out there for anyone's consumption.

Where do we go if we have been touched by Truth, but want more? And how do we learn to help others?

Just live Life without too much angst about it.

It is not necessary to hide the truth from anyone. We are all experts at keeping it out. That is the primary activity of a human being.

The reason that truth is hidden is that it becomes even more difficult for people to see it as significant when it becomes part of the common vocabulary.

For example, the expression "Let it Be" has the greatest profundity yet it has become trivial because of the way it was used.

The challange is not so much in seeing the truth as in giving it the correct valuation.

Last month I thought I may have figured out the secret.

It's kept a secret because if everyone knew what it was they'd all take it for granted. It wouldn't be special.

Sophia, I think that you were right.
