Word of the Week - 82
If you have become estranged from your intuition, all is not lost. The first step is to grow and remain quiet, still. The second is to listen. The third is to trust the information you receive no matter how unlikely, or even unreliable it seems. Knowledge greater than ours takes us in directions we would never have chosen.
Intuition, I believe, is the Panama Canal, moving us from one level of existence to another. We are lifted and transferred from ordinary to expanded. Intuition is not epiphany, not the explosive realization of discovery but something much softer, yet quietly insistent. It may lead us to epiphanies. to shouts of "eureka" and such. For me, its gifts, for they certainly are that, are neither noisy nor big, at least in the moment. In the aftermath of taking the recommended action, I may be aware that it was, in fact, a big deal. At which point, my normal response is to sit, subdued and at the same time dazed, grateful almost beyond measure. A sacred gift, indeed. Thank you.
