Discernment (intellectual seeing) is useless here unless one is able to embrace an opposing feeling or affection. Like the notion that God alone gives us intelligence and therefore has the best plan for leading us.
When these two loves duke it out and clash, a new kind of seeing can result from the inner friction in which we can, with greater and greater sincerity, contemplate our true significance in the world and the true significance of others.
In the terrestrial world, the blind are leading the blind because what we love has diminished into a worldview oriented toward self-centeredness, which causes spiritual blindness in everyone’s psyche and a complete failure to see reality.
Love needs the Lord God’s Divine Truth to see.
