As each of the events was brought back into awareness, I realised that I had ‘noticed’ these events at the time they occured (in 3D) and that they all had a particular tone or ring about them. Looking back at them now after having opened the insight, they are all very obvious signposts. I also saw other events over the past few days which pointed to various aspects of actually getting the insight.
In that moment, I realised that we cannot learn anything that makes a difference unless we have given up knowing! Put another way, if you have beliefs about something, and the teaching is attempting to get you to drop those opinions and judgements, you cannot hear the teaching until the beliefs have been let go of. In my case this often means life wrenching them from my clutching hands, by delivering a bit of chaos, confusion and disappointment.
