Every talk does not have to be a confirmation. If listening to your student or to your teacher always had to be a confirmation, it would be extraordinarily boring. If the speaker were telling you the complete truth all the time, probably it wouldn’t make any sense. That is why the truth is not told all at once. To do so would be a completely big flop. Instead one tells just a fraction of the truth–one-quarter of the truth, one-hundredth of the truth–which allows people to seek further truth and take a journey. In any case, if we tried to tell the whole truth, since it is known as self-secret, you probably couldn’t understand anything at all. You have to make the journey, in fact.
