What is illumination?

Dictionary definition of illumination

Illumination is spiritual or intellectual enlightenment; insight or understanding.  It is the act of making understood; clarification.

“The origins of the word stem from the period 1300–50 and originates from Middle English, whereby the Medieval Latin word illūminātiōn- (stem of illūminātiō ) means spiritual enlightenment ( Latin: illustriousness, glory).” [www.dictionary.com]

  • Does understanding necessarily come from the reading of lines or does a blank canvas equally have as much to offer, if not more?
  • To understand requires the input and assimilation of information;
    a blank canvas needs to receive paint and creation before it can illuminate others.
