“This moment of clarity is often vivid, and can take the form of a grand vision, or a “seeing” of something one has not seen before (but that was probably always there).”
The authors note that being in a state of openness is an essential core component enabling the presence of inspiration. For those of us who work with strategic narrative this state of openness is referred to a “narrative analysis”. In this state we are open to questioning what we know because the authenticity of a story holds within it the power for us to reconsider…. to “re-see” with new clarity.
And so story is a common catalyst for inspiration.
