Stopping at revelation
I'm putting this here because Clifton mentions Hegel and Jung.

http://www.jacobclifton.com/2011/08/stopping-at-revelation_11.html

If it's an -ism, and it's militant, there's a moment of revelation, of an oppressive weight removed, of freedom to think in a new direction.  And that moment has been twisted and mangled by the effort to keep it, preserve it, recapture it, relive it over and over again until it becomes yet another oppressive weight, another barrier to thinking in new directions.

Stopping at revelation is waste of a good revelation.
