I have always had a deep understanding. From around the age of 9 or 10 I was already putting some of the pieces of my life together around my spiritual beliefs.
Although we may have a deep understanding of our lives, we may not always be ready or in a position to change our life. But what is important is that we have that understanding. Without the understanding we won’t change anything.
With deep understanding we understand the essence of something, in other words, the basic and most important characteristic which gives that something its individual identity.
When we can make sense of something, with more details our understanding is deepened, and information is used in new ways to change issues, situations and circumstances.
Deeper understanding allows us to reason with what we know and with what we can comprehend and change. Through spiritual and emotional growth, we choose not to hold on to the things that no longer serve us.
Deeper understanding also helps us stop making premature judgments. It helps us enhance relationships, which helps us bring about healthier outcomes.
