Perhaps this will bring more clarity as to what I am hoping to understand when it regards "insight":
1. How is it defined?
2. Explicate how it dawns?
For instance: mindfulness meditation-> phenomenon rising and ceasing -> pattern recognition over time -> ???
3. Correct me if I am wrong, and this may relate directly with how question #1 is answered, but isn't insight directly related to catching glimpses of dhamma?
4. My other intention is assistance in seeing the sequence of how phenomenon rise, relating to dependent origination and its formula in my practice. I find the teachings agreeable and have, in part, observed at the surface that they are true, but how does one go deeper?
I feel that these questions are all inter-related, if any feels otherwise please articulate so and remain focused on how to develop insight (remaining respectful of the purpose of the forum).
