understanding of a specific cause and effect in a specific context
(Redirected from Insights)

Insight is the understanding of cause and effect within a specific context.


  • Conventional seeing, operating as it does with patterns and coherences, is a way of seeing the present in the past tense. Insight is an attempt to think in the present.
  • I have been honored to engage in dialogue with some of the most daring, inspiring and insightful "paradigm pioneers" of our time: in medicine, science, psychology, business, religion / spirituality, and human potential. This diverse group of individuals is joined by their commonly voiced insight that humanity is now taking a quantum leap forward in its evolutionary development. This change is accompanied by a shift in world view – the basic picture we carry with us of "the way things are."
  • Zen masters use the word satori to describe a flash of insight, a moment of no-mind and total presence. Although satori is not a lasting transformation, be grateful when it comes, for it gives you a taste of enlightenment. You may, indeed, have experienced it many times with-out knowing what it is and realizing its importance.
