“Live by intuition, do not live by logic.”

What drives science? 

Science has always been driven by hardened logic supported with cold facts and soulless formulas to account for all the biological, mathematical, sociological, historical, and mystical questions which abound within this life. And even though the answers to a great number of these mysteries are firmly and unquestionably entrenched deep within the collective consciousness of humankind, nevertheless, science and hence logic, dictates that the majority of us are unequivocally wrong in what we believe or feel as the truth.

Do we see the truth or feel the truth? 

While many wholeheartedly support the findings that manifest from scientific inquiry as the full truth and the only reality, this way of thinking comes at a high price. Intuition or natural knowledge which cannot be measured, observed, or calculated by white-coated lab assistants with modern day scientific equipment – is ridiculed as the baseless musings of artists, romantics, and poets to fabricate the fantasies of life, not the realities of life. At the expense of the traditional, we accept the novel as the only truth and solitary reality.

Live life by the seen ?

Logic or rational thought is based upon the seen and not upon the unseen. Hence, the rational mind’s mantra is best expressed as When I see it, I’ll believe it. When we accept that logic is the solitary path to truth and reality, we accept that truth and reality can only be measured, observed, and recorded by man or machine. The inherent problem with using these methods to arrive at all your conclusions and decisions in life is that these facts are the result of the noise from others.

Facts can be a mix of truth and fantasy

Facts, while a mix of both truth and fantasy manifest from the observations of politicians, educators, researchers, and the like to create the illusion in life which each group supports, either openly or covertly, as their personal agenda. Most have closed eyes and are unable to see through the illusion of life as they live it. However, when they open their eyes and see through life’s illusions, then they are in a position to reclaim that which they had lost initially.

Linear thinking and logic go hand-in-hand  

When a person embraces logic as their savior in this earthly life, they inherit a number of conditions which are inseparable from the whole. For example, linear thinking accompanies a logical mind. Since these conditions go hand in hand, we understand that a linear view of life occurs when a person has been trained to expect that A leads to B and B leads to C leads to D and so on and so on. If A leads to B and B leads to C then there is no uncertainty…only certainty. Many are unable to live with uncertainty in their lives, as a result, when these people live their lives, they rely upon logic and the facts and the seen to bring a sense of certainty and security to their lives.

Certainty brings stability to some

It is difficult, if not impossible for these people to flee from the certainty that brings stability to their lives. Nonetheless, even a small measure of uncertainty can manifest a crack in the paradigm which they live their lives. Mystery is unsettling. Unfamiliarity is frightening. Still, a small crack can slowly fester over time and then when a threshold is breached, uncertainty prevails over certainty. In this sense, logic could be viewed as a boomerang that comes back and hurts the hunter since everyday life is often filled with seemingly unexpected and uncontrollable events.

Intuition arises from silence 

While logic arises from the noise manifested by facts and the seen, intuition results from the silence manifested by feelings and the unseen. Hence, the intuitive mind’s personal mantra then appears to be best articulated as I’ll believe it, then I’ll see it. The brain and our Self have the innate ability to comprehend that which we do not comprehend at a physical level.

We need no help to comprehend intuitive knowledge 

And this understanding does not require any assistance from outside of our Self. It is our raw feelings that unlock the natural knowledge which is found deep within our souls and our DNA – the knowledge within is freely given to each of us by the benevolent Source regardless of our gender, race, education, or location. And the strength of our connection to the Source determines our receptivity to this divine gift that provides a pathway to understand the mystical, the miraculous, the unseen.

We cannot separate the inseparable…this is an illusion 

When a person embraces intuition as their sole path to arrive at their conclusions and decisions in life, they do so based upon their own feelings from their inner world and do not rely upon the noise from others in their outer world. This method does not come without its consequences since it is not possible to separate the inseparable. Just as certainty is inseparable from logic, uncertainty is inseparable from intuition.

Your road-map exists within

This is not to say that a person who relies upon their intuition to solve their life’s issues goes around uncertain of what they need to do in order to accomplish that which they want to accomplish. Rather, it is like being provided with a road-map and the directions to end-up at your final destination are not highlighted with a bright yellow marker. You have the map and you need to hear the directions from your inner voice.

Your senses will guide you on your journey 

You must also rely upon your senses to find the right way – you rely upon the sun and the wind and your Self to arrive at your final location. Hence, A does not lead to B and B does not lead to C…you just know where you want to go and know with your entirety that you’ll get there, it is just that there are a variety of ways to get there and here is where the uncertainty steps in.

Uncertainty is a virtue…embrace it, do not scorn it 

I can say with certainty that uncertainty is a sacred virtue. When we surrender our Self to our intuition, we surrender our Self to the Source and the ancient knowledge innate within each of us to live a life with our truths and our realities. While we may surrender our Self to uncertainty, there is little sacrifice since surrendering certainty for uncertainty is an empowering feeling. Our constant sense of gratitude for the freedom is amplified as we experience life unshackled by the chains of certainty.

How can we access our innate knowledge? 

We can access intuition by our clear and focused thoughts and the long and often forgotten ways rekindle the connection that is lost over our lifetime. As we experience clarity of thought, we see through the illusions of life and do not fear, worry, or hate what the logical mind fears, worries, and hates. We do not need nor rely upon facts and science to explain the mysteries of life which include our belief of the Source, our ability to create or own reality, and our capacity to cure our dis-eased bodies and minds.

Don’t believe only in facts 

We do not believe in the facts and the reality that the seen world presents to us. After all if we did, by all rights a poor girl from Venezuela would never become a world renowned singer; a poor child who grew-up in a ghetto with little but his desire to become a famous sports figure would do so; and a boy who endured hunger when growing-up would become a famous jockey.

Intuition conquers all 

It is indeed a rarefied atmosphere where intuition is the conqueror of fear, uncertainty, and the seen. Turning your decision making process over to the unknown and the unseen requires a huge leap of faith. In this day and age where science is slowly strangling our reliance upon and the confidence in our own Self to cure our illnesses, to achieve our goals, and to answer our mystical questions, we need 100% trust, 100% faith, and 100% belief in our divine gift in order to relinquish the control of our destiny to our Self.

Surrender to your intuition 

While the price for our complete trust, our complete faith, and our complete belief may seem to be exorbitant, once we relinquish our Self to our intuition, it is like a traveler who leaves a humble home in an underdeveloped rural village to live in a modern metropolitan area. That person never returns with the same state of mind, the same level of wonder, and the same measure of confidence as when they first turned the handle of their door and made that initial step outside their comfortable and familiar hometown.

Intuition manifests a happier, healthier life 

Live your life by intuition and not by logic. When making this comment, I certainly do not question being rational concerning driving your car at 100 mph on an icy road through the mountains in December. Rather, I mean to live by intuition when making the really BIG decisions in life such as your job, your spouse, and your business. If you live by intuition and not by reason, surely, you will have a happier, healthier, and wealthier life since you are doing what you truly want with who you truly want to be with and when you truly want to do it. At the least, it certainly makes life a lot more enjoyable than the predictable, routine that most of us trade for security.  Allow the untapped or the forgotten knowledge that resides deep within your inner world to reign supreme over the noise and distractions of your outer world.

“What is Plan B?”

whatEarning money on a book he didn’t write

In today’s world, it is unsettling to discover that many are promoting spiritual commercialism as a means to achieve one’s goals in life. Oh, they don’t package and promote it under that moniker, rather, they conceal it under a myriad of claims including working with the Natural Laws to change your life to one of abundance and worldly wealth and fame. Just the other day one guru openly admitted, and proudly sorry to say, that he had earned in excess of $100,000 on a self-help book he didn’t even write. Isn’t there something disturbing about this revelation? Surely, on the visceral level, we understand that their books and their seminars and their DVD’s and their podcasts and their movies have nothing to do with spirituality and enlightenment. Rather, the focus is to funnel money into their bank accounts and not spirituality into our souls.

“So, what is Plan B?”

If we recognize the falsities that abound before us, we must also realize the need to have a plan to find inner peace as well as achieve what we want in life and what the Source rightly provides to and for us. Currently, the collective consciousness focuses upon material wealth, then physical health, and lastly our spiritual Self. If we imagine our life as a three-sided triangle, our lives have been inverted at a great cost of spiritual, emotional, and societal ills for all of humankind. That being said, we need to place our most prized possession, our spirituality as first, our overall health second, and our material wealth last.

Live in the now

Each of us can begin the road to spiritual recovery if we joyfully live in the now,  gratefully accept where we are right now, and genuinely have 100% faith and belief in the Source right now. You see, we must attain our spiritual Self before we can truly gain material wealth that will sustain our lives for the future. If we focus upon bigger homes, shinier cars, and costlier goods at the cost of spirituality, the novelty soon wears off, we become disillusioned and want even bigger and shinier and costlier toys. So to speak, we’re always chasing our tail. Shift your emphasis in life off of material goods and onto spirituality; feel the warmth of the sun, hear the sweet singing of the birds, experience complete peace with your relationship to the Source. Receive inner strength and guidance and the rest will come naturally.

Is it really spirituality?

What is most detrimental to humankind; a doctrine that manipulates the masses for profit and control or spirituality built upon false pretenses in exchange for monetary profits? We must see through this false spirituality and pursue true spirituality to achieve a meaningful, healthy, and prosperous life which goes far beyond expensive or exclusive or exotic goods.

Don’t be satisfied sleepwalking through life anymore!

7. Live wakefully 

(Osho’s Seventh New Commandment)

Cast conformity aside 

In this modern technological era, we don’t have to think, speak, or act for or from our Self, this is all accomplished for us by the mechanisms of government and society. We relinquish control over our own steering wheel and as we do this we have no need to think independently, no need to speak independently, and no need to act independently. We are lemmings racing to a future of compliance, conformity, and obedience and all the while having no idea that this is our future. Our blinders are on, our eyes are closed to spirituality, our minds are sealed from defiance, and our tongues are silenced from speaking original thoughts. Let’s liberate our Self of the yoke that is thrown over us like a net over a school of spawning salmon attempting to find their way home, and before we are trapped forever from reaching our ultimate goal of enlightenment,

header12Follow no agenda

Our elected officials, our government have an agenda to fulfill; our society has an agenda to fulfill, fed by the words and actions of our elected officials; and those around us have an agenda to fulfill.

Truth is not commercialism 

Now is the time we open our eyes to see and comprehend what is being presented as truth to us; the truth that is embedded in commercialism, the truth that is shrouded in greed, and the truth that is twisted un-recognizably from non-truth to truth. It is an arduous task since the roots of non-truth have grown deep within your soul, mind, and body. The seeds of untruths have had months, years, and possibly decades after being planted to germinate, and to bore fruit; this kind of harvested fruit is not sweet to the taste nor pleasant to the touch…fruit that ripens as an untruth was never, is never, and can never be beautiful or fulfilling to your soul or your body. This type of fruit is harmful to your being, soul, mind, and body; it perpetuates the lemming mentality. Hence, it is wise never to allow it take hold, germinate, or mature into the fruit that takes away your ability to think, speak, and act of your own volition.

Unbind the the mental chains 

In order to occupy a space of higher being, a higher level of consciousness, and a more acute level of awareness…you must cut the mental chains that bind you. You must clear away the fog that clouds your vision of what life is and what it has become at the hands of those who wish to control you through their agendas. It begins with questioning what is being fed to you, what is being forced upon you, and what is being thrust at you. Once you take that step to see the reality that modern life has become, you soon see that you have lost control and you must take control of your Self once again.

Cooperation not competition 

As you take control, you walk through the sunlight in a cooperative mind; a mind that lacks ego, is devoid of power, and shuns celebrity. You lose control when you live in the shadows of a competitive mind; it must be so since you want power, wealth, and celebrity over others…it is their loss and it is your gain. You win…they lose. This is not pure existence, being awake, and walking in higher realms of being…this is impure existence, being asleep and walking in lower realms of being.

Being awake is innate 

Experience the feeling of being awake at all times; you don’t have to chase after it…it is within you, all you need to do is open your eyes, mind, and Self to the innate beauty that is awareness, a closeness to truth and a distance from untruth. It has been provided to you by the Source; it is inclusive and not exclusive to you and only you, or exclusive to others and not inclusive to you.
