This morning, an interesting way to view the concept of Intuition came to me, and I want to share it with others.
Let us say there is a cliff, and pouring over this cliff is a waterfall. Human nature is to look at the waterfall, think about it, and watch it fall into a pool, then the stream running out of the pool, and on… and on. Because we can’t see the origin of the water [hidden by the height of the cliff], we first become aware of, and take notice the water, as it pours over the cliff… it is the strange and rare person who ignores the waterfall and, instead, is concerned with the origin of the water?
The above dialogue suggests ‘Intuition,’ but mostly speaks of information. The only part of the dialogue that is Intuition is the part that suggest the ‘origin of the water’. Everything else is information. To acquire and experience Intuition, one must climb up the mountain, and having achieved the level of the cliff, one must then trace the flow of the water ‘back’ to its source: And another name for this particular process is Enlightenment [or maturation of the Soul].
Intuition is Knowledge, coming from Within oneself, and Knowledge ONLY exists Within oneself; hidden from the brain and ones physical senses. You see, Intuition is as aspect of Spiritual Truth, while information is part of the illusion of life, whose primary nature is that of change. And change is the natural nature of the illusion, while Intuition is a part of Reality, which is permanent, unchanging, and Spiritual in nature.
Intuition is an aspect of ones Soul tapping into Truth, which is held as a ‘complete’ concept: That is, all the elements of something, including all the elements which support and describe some basic Truth, are held together in a bit of Intuition that comes to ones Conscious Awareness as a huge Ah-ha.
Finally, Intuition is a bit of insight that is quickly lost… just as soon as ones Attention shifts from ones ‘Consciousness’ to ones brain [which is physical, and incapable of perceiving the invisible three-quarters of ones whole]. And, this describes the difference between the Enlightened individual, and those who are not. Intuition is a tool of the Enlightened individual, and is a rare experience of those who are not Enlightened [or not Spiritually Evolved].
