Where does insight come from?
We must pay attention to our experiences, for these can trigger questions for reflections.
The formation of insight indeed happens inside us, not outside us. When we gain information from others, it is simply a transfer of knowledge. But when the information or experience resonates with us, we allow insights to form.
In a way, the term “extract insight” or “extract meaning” seem to be misrepresentations of the authentic insight experience. We can be provoked, triggered, or inspired by external entities, but it is us who must keep an open mind and heart.
Mark 12:35-37. The Holy Spirit inspired David to say: ‘The Lord said to my Lord: Sit here on my right until I put your enemies under your feet.’
