Hindsight

“Hindsight may not be so much better than foresight, but it’s much better than no sight at all.” Anne Wilson Schaef.[1]

Think about it! What if we had no insight at all! We wouldn’t be able to understand anything about ourselves, our behavior, thoughts, feelings or attitudes. For that matter, we wouldn’t be able to understand much about the behavior, thoughts, feelings or attitudes of our family, friends, neighbors, politicians… Hmm, maybe that takes something more than insight, let’s see, maybe outsight… just kidding! Seriously, though, next time we start beating ourselves up for what we ‘should’ have known about the past, let’s just stop. Stop the ‘should a’s, could a’s, would a’s, what ifs and if onlys and practice being grateful for insight. Be grateful for having the  insight, for being aware enough to actually be processing the incident, issue or argument.

The most fundamental goal of therapy is to ‘make conscious what’s unconscious.’ In Celestial Psychology® we call it doing ‘holy work.’
