“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” ― Albert Einstein

“The rational mind, home of the ego, learns and accepts the beliefs and expectations of the social environment… it becomes our basic identity and its failure can result in painful symptoms including anxiety, guilt, and depression.

It is common to feel something is wrong in our perception of life and we want to seek answers to this problem… Most spiritual teachings point toward liberation from the ego but not clear how this happens or what replaces the ego and its rational mind… It is commonly understood that we cannot intellectually find a solution but it must be an emotionally experienced… One accepted belief is the need for the ego to experience a total feeling of exhaustion and failure… Joseph Campbell writes, “the black moment is the moment when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light ”

But the experience is not complete until we discover the” sacred gift of the intuitive mind”and its powers of imagination…Albert Einstein said, “The only real valuable thing is intuition . .. it is expressed through feelings and images rather than rational thoughts and concepts… the rational mind relates to the social environment while the intuitive mind relates to universal intelligence.

It was our primary awareness in early childhood and buried now in our ” inner child ” … If we listen very quietly we may hear our inner child trying to express itself .

Our intuitive mind has its own inner compass separate from the rational mind and uniquely moves us in a direction true to our own nature . ..It also wants to grow through creative challenges and explorations of nature . ..The intuitive mind can develop a wisdom beyond any potential of the rational mind .

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe. ~Joseph Campbell
