INTUITIVE AWARENESS

“Follow your heart and intuition, they already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~Steve Jobs

We often talk about intuition but are usually uncertain as to what it means…what makes it so difficult to understand is its mysterious origin and our receiving the message as feelings or images rather than logical thoughts or ideas.

Science now understands that the whole universe as interconnected and not as we assumed made up of separate pieces…most importantly our illusion of having a separate personal self with its own story is an illusion.

The best way for us to sense the interrelatedness of life is through our intuitive feelings….the rational mind separates every thing into parts, which has been very effective as an adaptive tool however when we use it as a way of perceiving our self and a sense of direction we run into serious problems…practically all our education has been focused on developing the rational mind with little attention given to the much more intelligent intuitive mind whose roots are in the powers of nature’s instincts.

When we temporarily suspend the narrow rational mind we allow the expanded intuitive mind to perceive the “large picture” and its many interrelationships….the intuitive mind perceives images and feelings not in rational words or thoughts….when we experience these images and feelings it is only then that we shoud use our rational mind to interpret their meaning.

“Intuition is the supra-logic that cuts out all the routine processes of thought and leaps straight from the problem to the answer.”~Robert Graves
