The Light of God & Seeing Light

I’ve thought a lot about the Light of God in nature and today’s artificial world. It is as if we have a veil that keeps us from seeing clearly. I am not referring to the veil of the Law, the analogy Paul uses in 2 Corinthians 3. I mean a veil of a synthetic world in which I do not recognize the moon phases (a month), care for growing things, see the majesty of mountains, or the slow beauty of changing seasons. The Lord uses natural order to declare Himself. How do I understand His revelation as Father unless I have one, see one, or am one? Jesus as the Light of the world would mean nothing without my experience of natural light. Tossing my sins into the depths of the sea means very little unless I’ve seen and swam in the ocean’s vastness.
