True insight

True insight is a natural (but not a normal) occasion.

True insight comes from the unknown.

True insight provides a vision for discovery, not a destination.

True insight is much more than just an answer to a preexisting question.

True insight kicks down the door and tosses up a whole new paradigm — an entirely fresh foundation to stand on and view the world.

True insight shows up as an opening — a new space for being.

True insight comes, not from a question, but from an inquiry into the nature of being that’s not about producing solutions, prescriptions, or recipes, but as a place to live authentically in the unknown.

True insight isn’t about anchoring in a new belief — it’s about accepting the previously unbelievable, if even for a moment.
