The higher understandings for each type are both aspirational and within our reach. But do we understand them? Reflect, ponder, meditate and consider these understandings, particularly the one for your enneagram type.
Everything, including imperfection, is as it should be.
There is a profound purpose to everything that occurs that is independent of one’s own efforts.
Everyone has intrinsic value, and there is a natural flow and order to everything.
Everything has meaning and significance, and everyone is connected at the deepest levels.
True wisdom involves an integration of thoughts, feelings, and action and comes from direct experience.
Meaning and support exist both inside and outside themselves.
Genuine happiness and a feeling of wholeness come from integrating negative and positive experiences.
Vulnerability and weakness are part of being human, and multiple truths must be assimilated in order to reach the real truth.
Unconditional regard connects everyone and everything.
