    29. 29. Intuition • Intuition is to see things – in their essential nature – not just understanding things conceptually or from memory. • It incorporates conceptual understanding, but at the same time, transcends it. It is integrative. It includes, without analysis, priorities, values or principles. • It entails awareness of a level of consciousness subtler than thinking. • True intuition is identical with spiritual awareness and the mystical meaning of “faith.”
    30. 30. The Intuitive Person • Intuitive persons have judgments that are ultimately sound and in accord with objective reality. • Hence, because their view or judgment encompasses a wider and deeper scope, they are aptly called wise (not merely being intelligent, cunning or smart). • “All great men are endowed with intuition. They know without reasoning or analysis, what they need to know.” (Alexis Carrel) • They are some of the most influential people in history: Plato, Confucius, Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, Einstein, etc. • They are self-actualizing people
    31. 31. Exploring Intuition 1. Understand what intuition is – and not confuse it with ESP, emotions, and whims 2. Be clear about your deepest values – your principles in life and your most important personal values 3. Learn how to enter into inner silence – practice meditation and daily awareness 4. Check inner response when a decision has to be made – learn to recognize the inner seeing vs. emotional reactions
    32. 32. Exercise • Think of a present life situation that is not trivial – something that you are concerned about and which is not yet clear yet to you what you should do. (E.g., to sell or not to sell the house; to reside in another place; to buy a new piano or not; to go back to school or not; to enter into a relationship; etc.) • Enter into inner silence. Drop the thought about the situation entirely from your mind (if you feel discomfort while thinking about it then process it first). • When mind and feelings are calm, indifferent about things, and there is inward silence, turn your attention to the situation: – – – – not deliberate or evaluate it, just look at it without analysis; allow the consciousness to “dwell” on the situation, no attempt to understand or do anything about it, just look • Stay with this state for five minutes
    33. 33. The existence of the Mahatmas, their power to travel in the inner, or astral body at will, to preserve full command of all their intelligence, and to condense their “phantom” form into visibility or dissolve it into invisibility at their own pleasure, are now facts too well established to permit us to regard it as an open question. (CW 5:290-1)
