A zen saying; “It is too clear, and so it is hard to see” – but later “I can see more clearly now”.

This is worth a separate post;

“It is too clear, and so it is hard to see. A dunce once searched for
a fire with a lighted lantern.

Had he known what fire was, he could have cooked his rice much
sooner.” ”

Inevitably for me it reminds me of the song that starts;

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)……….
