Week 15 – Insight: A Word Worth Understanding

The dictionary defines insight in the following ways:

  1. Perceptiveness

The ability to see clearly and intuitively into the nature of a complex person, situation or subject.

  1. Clear Perception

A clear perception of something

  1. Self-Awareness

The ability of somebody to understand and find solutions to his or her personal problems

  1. Perception That Hallucinations are not Real

The perception, lacking in some psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, that symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations are not objective.

Haanel instructs us to concentrate on and develop “insight”.  He adds that we are to “focus the thought on the fact that to have knowledge of the creative power of thought does not mean to possess the art of thinking.”


Let the thought dwell on the fact that knowledge does not apply itself.

Ok, I’ve heard that one before.

Our actions are not governed by knowledge, but by custom, precedent and habit.

Finally jellin’ – got that back in the vault somewhere.

We are to concentrate on the meaning of the word and bypass knowledge.

Am I getting this right?

This one has me a bit confused.  One minute I sit and remove knowledge from thought.  Knowledge is the action of thought (I think).  The next I am looking at the assignment and have no idea what anything is.  Thus, it is time to go back into the lesson and look deeper into the glass for the message within.  I finally see the passage that resonates with me – and maybe ties some of this together.

I can concentrate on the knowledge thing and “go with the flow” that it is the result of thought, that knowledge is learned and acted upon.  But a more important thing, for me anyway, is the part about thought – that love makes thought vibrant.

15.10  In order to possess vitality thought must be impregnated with love. . . .

And the kicker;

15.11 It is love which imparts vitality to thought and thus enables it to germinate. . . .

How amazing is that?  Now I can ratchet this back into the previous week’s lesson and deduce that the key to powerful communication between individual thought and the Universal Mind is what I call the trinity of human needs and emotions – Happiness, Harmony and Love.  A revelation!  I am also seeing the true importance of language (words) and why my guide suggested that I change my wording and words on my DMP so often.  And by transmitting these three things to the Universe, with the proper wording, what do you suppose I will get back?

I will let you know what I get back, but I can tell you that I already see some interesting things coming my way.  I encourage you all to try it if you haven’t already.

Until next time: Love, Happiness and Harmony to all.
