exploring self-realization, sacred personhood, and full humanity
Editor's 1-Minute Essay:
return to "Intuition" main-page
If you begin to trust yourself and leave behind dogma, the pre-packaged thinking of others; if you learn to cultivate the soul-forces within; if you honor the “still small voice,” the solitude of silence, the inner vibration; if you devote yourself to the refinement of the spirit and the pursuit of knowledge and understanding; you will enter a world of magical perception, unbounded by the four-dimensional concerns of time and space.
"Ever desireless, one can see the mystery; ever desiring, one sees only the manifestations. And the mystery itself is the doorway to all understanding." The Tao Te Ching, the first verse
It is living in “the mystery,” living in “the joy”...
'ere I forget all the joy
Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
'ere I forget all the joy that is mine today
You will have stepped over the threshold, beyond the mundane and the ephemeral, into an enchanted land of endless perspicacity and extraordinary discernment.
You will find yourself as recipient of the unthinkable, the inapprehensible. These “gifts from the gods” will come to you unexpectedly, grace your life, and protect you from calamity.
J. Donald Walters: "Intuition is the innate ability in everyone to perceive truth directly - not by reason, logic, or analysis, but by a simple knowing from within. That is the very meaning of the word "intuition": to know, or understand from within - from one's own self, and from the heart of whatever one is trying to understand. Intuition is the inner ability to see behind the outer forms of things to their inner essence."

If, in your excitement of discovery, you attempt to share what you’ve seen - like a dazed refugee from Plato’s cave - there will be no one to receive you; no one will give credence to your words; no one will connect with your insights. Attempts to make oneself clear will result in a fruitless exercise of misunderstanding. Many will label you as odd, out of step - and, along with the “ugly duckling,” wish that “the cat might get you.”
The longer you pursue the marvelous; the farther you journey on the path of the mystical; the less you will have in common with those of this world. Even so, you must keep walking, as they will be required to catch up to you.

The best teacher, in my opinion, to help us access "the inner soul-forces" as aid to intuition is Eckhart Tolle...
