I've tried to suggest to people that the light bulb going off in their heads is a spiritual experience. It isn't mystical at all. In a recent essay I phrased it like this. "The k...

'How The Light Gets Out' — a poem by Leonard Cohen

‘How The Light Gets Out’

Our own dishonesty
holds a mask up
to the world.

A counterfeit
burden with
saddening
consequence.

But soon enough
there appears
a crack in
every one.

That’s how
the light
