“If children grew up according to early indications, we should have nothing but geniuses.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

All living organisms have an inner compass which seems to be in harmony with our natural environment… humans have an inner compass (also known as the “Heart” or “Soul”) but on a higher level with the special gifts of intuition… it includes extraordinary qualities such as imagination, creativity, and spiritual feelings (“Everybody is a genius”)…. When we follow the intuitive feelings of our inner compass, we experience a oneness within our self… Along with a spontaneity and effortlessness with whatever we are doing… It also offers us an awareness of our true identity which is quite different from our socially conditioned self… Most importantly, our inner compass is interrelated and consistent with a universal compass… While our socially conditioned self is limited to our social environment.

When in an activity originating from our inner compass, we will lose awareness of our self and sense of time… Our inner compass functions best when we aren’t conscious of our self which allows our attention to be totally involved in the activity… If we are watching our self and the activity at the same time there is a loss of energy and spontaneity… It is important that we love what we choose to do….our inner compass always points to love and its intuitive feelings can help us find our unique involvement… It may appear at first that it has no social value but over time new doors may open up that offer social rewards giving us more reason to continue and expand our special interest.

It is a big step to give up the values and expectations of society necessary for a full awareness of our inner compass… Often it takes a deep failure of our socially conditioned self (social compass) before we can give it up… It usually doesn’t happen through some intellectual understanding but requires an emotional experience which prods us to let go… Over our lifetime we have been fed and digested most of our social beliefs and they are embedded within both mind and body… Thus the intellectual mind by itself cannot bring about the experience of transformation… The transformation is a change of identity from a social compass to an intuitive inner compass.
