Insight (52 Meditations)

In-sight is the interior version of physical sight.

 

It is a seeing into the reality of things – self, relationships, scientific problems – into reality as a Whole, or some part of reality.

 

In-sights expand our space.  They expand the parameters.  They expand our sensibility.

 

But they also re-order priorities and tweak life-perspectives.

 

According to the teachings of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh

 

THIS WEEK’S MANTRA or ‘BREATHTRA’

 

In-breath:I ask my spirit
Out-breath: light breaks forth

 

Words from a spiritual master;

 

“…while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit.
In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit
and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

 

Words from another spiritual master;

I have seen water.
