Daily Insights

Daily Insights are insightful truths about reality that empower us to transform our way of thinking.

They are often challenging, and give us the coaching and courage to behave in a way we might never have thought of. They’re great to dwell on and remind ourselves of throughout the day.

The Daily Insights book can be purchased through the Wisdom Shop. Book sections have been indicated for each Insight.

Trying to have heaven now

Trying to have heaven now is a primary cause of pain and suffering. Where necessary, we must learn how to wait and accommodate earth’s faults.
