Intuition is like instinct because you cannot do anything about it. It is part of your consciousness, just as instinct is part of your body. You cannot do anything about your instinct and you cannot do anything about your intuition. But just as you can allow your instincts to be fulfilled, you can allow and give total freedom to your intuition to be fulfilled. And you will be surprised as what kinds of powers you have been carrying within you.
Intuition can give you answers for ultimate questions – not verbally but existentially.
Instinct and intuition are both independent of you. Instinct is in the power of nature, of unconscious nature, and intuition is in the hands of super-conscious universe. That consciousness surrounds the whole universe, is the oceanic consciousness of which we are jus small islands – or better, icebergs, because we can melt into it and become one with it.
Intuition leads you only to yourself. It has no dependence, no need for the other, hence its beauty, its freedom and independence. Intuition is an exalted state needing nothing. It is so full of itself that there is no space for anything else.
Intuition functions in a quantum leap. It has no methodological procedure, it simply sees things.
