The idea of x-ray insight could suggest extraordinary powers and the like. Within the context of everyday life however, perhaps it is more about tuning into our intuition and feelings to use the resources we have.
Seeing, or better perceiving, as it were with x-ray insight derives from our capacity to examine the moment with openness and honesty. The desire to see things as they are to the best of our abilities is in contrast to the behaviour we can oftentimes encounter, summed up by the expression ‘seeing what they want to see’.
Each of us of course chooses to interact with the moment as we wish. At times a certain superficiality might be the wisest option if we are not particularly involved in the matter before us. Yet when we need to bring our full attention to the moment, our x-ray insight can come into its own.
