Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 116: Insights Lead Us to Growth and Change

Once we begin to notice how the power of thinking works and how we change as our understanding deepens, it becomes a thrilling lifetime learning experience to experience new insights and keep growing and changing.  We are taught early on that “figuring out” is the way to learn, but very few people are taught that insight is the way to grow and find deeper and deeper peace and contentment.  We learn facts that are already known from our intellect.  But insight brings us fresh and deeper understanding of our own experience and true knowledge about the possibilities that arise from a quieter mind, looking to see beyond the already known.
