Oh when the truth suddenly dawns. We can look at something in one mood, then look at it in another; we get two completely different results. Perception plays tricks sometimes.
The naked light of reason is that humbling sense of insight we get when the truth is laid bare. And isn’t it ironic; assumptions make bold announcements, but the truth always lags.
No matter how embarrassing the truth is, the naked light of reason, as it appears, should always be welcomed. God has appeared, visiting the situation in the manner of the Spirit and truth.
This moment of reason is the reality that all relationships desperately need; for protagonists to acknowledge the truth as it prevails.
When the facts are known, and compassion is availed, forgiveness is then a reality; and with forgiveness, healing; a heavenly transaction.
