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.
I cannot remember what age I was when I had fully worked things out, but it was obvious to me things were amiss early on. Although we may have a deep understanding, as ‘my story’ shows, we may not always be in a position to change pieces of our life early on.
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.
How do we find deep understanding?
Usually, 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 spiritually and emotional growth, we will choose not to hold on to the things that no longer serve us.
Deeper understanding helps us stop making premature judgments. It also helps us enhance relationships and can bring about different outcomes.
