Education dictates that we fake it
Pretend to understand what we do not
Intuition is discredited
Psychic phenomena are ridiculed
Having said all that
A moment arrives when
Nobody is laughing anymore and
You reach Eureka

If teachers were required to have a minimum of a masters degree they might at least know the sujbect that they taught. Interesting write lady.

Nice one, Linda, but you should un-bold the lead letters and let your readers have a mini-ephiphany of their own!

I once had such a vacuum..and as I recall I realized it by name wasn't guess I needed to grope deeper! Thanks! Excellent work!

Oh, I do so like the point of seeing the light, to coin a pun.

fakery and pretense more or less describes and dictates the state of our current affairs, which is sad and the very reason we write, in order to right that quack ship and achieve that precious and rare occuring moment of our Nirvana when we can shuffle off false and pretentious coils and veer into the sheerness of our virtuosity.
