The intellectual side of this is that when one loves the truthful life, naturally the intelligence, - the torch by which to see both the world seen and the world unseen, - begins to help one, and the clouds of illusion within and without begin to become scattered. Man then begins to see with his own light in his hand. It is a hint towards this process which we find in the words of Jesus Christ, "Raise your light high, let no one keep his light under a bushel." The act of raising the light on high is to hold the torch of intelligence in one's hand in order to see into the external world, - that which is seen, - and also into the world which is within and unseen.
