Insight is a curious little word that I have liked but taken for granted. I have thought it to signal that an idea had just popped into my head, one that had been out there in the great beyond and I had suddenly and surprisingly appropriated it. It is much deeper than that.
It is very straight forward. ‘In’ and ‘sight’ fused together = insight or inner sight, an understanding that comes from within. That must mean that the insights that come to me have really been there all along, I just have not been paying close attention.
I have liked the idea that I have a knowing beyond my everyday awareness, yet to be unearthed, but I haven’t comprehended how great that might be. I have been looking in all the wrong places. That knowing isn’t found in what I have learned or have yet to learn. It simply is and I have been looking in the wrong direction to find it.
To look within means to go to the core of me in order to know. That’s not a very well-defined place. In fact it’s not a place at all, not a library, not a search engine, not a wise one. I must get into the habit of looking inward to that non-physical, non-dimensional place, if it can be called a place.
Quiet and watchfulness are requisite. It’s in sight of my non-physical eyes.
