Everything is illuminated. This becomes more obvious to those with eyes to see, by the presence of the Light of the World. The light within creation and scripture rises up to greet with a kiss, his living presence within us. We can only witness this if we are truly paying attention. Light everywhere teaches us about the reflection of the divine nature contained within all created things and beings, and shows us that almost anything can be deemed beautiful.
The interplay of shadows and light, of dark and bright, of colour and shade, is a divine dance all around us. Delineation keeps us from wandering out of the cosmos of experience entirely, and holds all things in place. Sometimes the light dazzles, creates awe and splendour, other times it is subtle and soft. But always it enables a deeper seeing.
Next, we shall be looking at the way aesthetics enables our spiritual sight.
