Namaste and Insight

Namaste and Insight

I had a rather wonderful Skype conversation with Jos Wielink, where he innocently said something that transformed my thinking about Insights and the 3 Principles:

(*health warning – this all makes sense to me, but I have no idea if it will translate into something understandable for you – but if you are up for the ride – please continue………)


All Insights are One Insight.

All insights are a glimpse of the truth of the universe; the oneness of all. If all insights come from, and in turn, are looking upon the oneness, all insights are also, one.

If this is getting too abstract, let’s make this more in the here and now

(although this is so far in the now, and the truth, that it can actually be too clear to see! Oh the irony of the metaphysical!).

I might have an insight about the nature of my love of chocolate; or how to approach my friend; or what form my Christmas workshop will take; or the way I can tell stories in my mind about the simplest of chores which creates stress for me. These insights are about different things relating to different areas of my life. Some are deep and philosophical, some are practical. They all come from, what we in the 3 Principles call, ’Mind’: the creative intelligence behind life, the oneness and interconnectedness that is life. Some call this energy ’god’, others call it the Great Spirit, others the Oneness – there are so many words to point to the same wondrous thing (that isn’t a thing!).

Insights are tiny, tiny fragments of the universal Mind, like looking into a Kaleidoscope. They are colourful glimpses into the oneness of the universe, but they all are interpretations of one reality. They may seem ordinary or even mundane, but they are everyday reminders of the true reality of the universe.

Part of our lovely conversation revolved around this understanding of the Sanskrit word Namaste, and may help point to what I can only begin to point to, as frustratingly, words are such blunt instruments when it comes to truth and the nature of who we are:

I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth and of peace. And when you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.
– Bill Cummings

So in that space, which we all inhabit, yet are so often unaware of, I wish you a wonderful day.

  1. Lovely it was. What an exploration. Still trying to catch up my breath. Just watched a video with Gangaji. Wonderful, thanks for mentioning… Got some really interesting insights…
    After reading your blog some new thoughts come up. I just go on ranting and see what comes out.

    The oneness underneath the misty layers of seperation. Layers that are always fluctuating. Most of the time too dense to see through it.. But when we happen to see throught it, we just get a glimpse, we see a reflection.
    It’s like the blind that are exploring an elephant by just feeling it’s skin and forms.. The oneness of life is like an infinite elephant. Each time it looks like we discover something new, it looks like a different creature. One moment a dinosaur, another moment a snake, another moment a rhino, another moment a horse… Sooo mesmerizing everytime we think we get it… But in fact it’s someting beyond ancient, that was already there.. It’s the same, but in a different disguise… And as we happen to keep feeling the elephant, as we keep looking in that direction, our understanding deepens and we start to get a feel for it, but we’ll never really have the words to describe it…. And to be able to get a deeper understanding of what you’re exploring, you best can whipe all your insights on the nature of the elephant. These are all our dearest “OMG and AHA’ moments, because they are in the way of seeing who you really are: ‘the infinite elephant’

    LOL 🙂

    • In that case, I shall deeply enjoy being the “infinite elephant” as more and more unfolds before me. I think that finally I understand this quote:

      “You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet”.

      Franz Kafka

  2. Hi Tammy
    Lovely blog about insights. It reminds me of the quote from Syd Banks: “What is, is always perfect… if you see it properly”.
    It would appear that this ability to be able to see the infinite intelligence of the universe in any given second, is pointing in a similar direction to your insight on insights.
    Kind regards
