Step six - Insight

Witnessing Our Prosperity and Wellness Evolve

We usually think of insight as a single act or moment, a flash of intuition that comes and then goes. However, insight can also be continuous. Here, insight is inner sight, a state of observation in which we witness life as it unfolds. It is pure awareness—a constant dialogue between the being within and the outside world, always on the premises of the heart and never on those of the i-me-mine. Insight is openness and clarity, the ability to see things as they truly are without prejudice or resistance.

To have insight is to be present and alert, constantly—not to receive an occasional message from the heart but to be constantly in communication with it. While we are insightful, we are close enough to ourselves to hear the frequency at which our heart beats and thereby to experience things as they are.

Insight is similar to awareness, but it is more objective. It is the ability to be attentive within ourselves while also being in touch with what is outside us. Some call it “witnessing”—not just a single a flash of intuition, but a continuous state of observing life as it unfolds. Others say it is a constant dialogue between the soul and the outside world. Insight is openness and clarity, the ability to see things as they truly are, without prejudice and without resistance. Insight means living from the unity of the heart, not the illusions of the mind, with the awareness necessary to distinguish between them.
