Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 65: Insight vs. Belief

We talk a lot about Insight; it is a truly remarkable gift, always available to all of us. We can’t say enough about the freedom and depth we gain from living from insight, rather than chasing beliefs. The source of beliefs is the intellect, the already known. Beliefs are ideas we generate from reorganizing our memory — our bank of knowledge — to try to understand or decide things in the present. Insights arise out of the blue, from Wisdom, always relevant to our present-moment situations. When we are able to let go of churning through our thoughts and accept not knowing until we “see” what we need to know, life feels easy and things work out in unexpected ways. Insight works beyond our intellect to allow us to see true change and make sense of our lives.
