One fascinating assertion of Lonergan about the insight experience is that it is more about one’s internal conditions and less about external stimuli. This is akin to detective stories where the clues are right there in front of us but we do not acquire an insight about the dilemma.
Epiphanies do seem like elusive graces, but it does not mean we stop from inquiring or seeking answers.
The calm and the mundane after a seemingly fruitless inquiry may be the time when we are letting our inside conditions incubate ideas and facilitate insights.
Matthew 2:1-12. The epiphany
