intuition

A Quote by Paul John Roach on answers, awareness, intuition, mystery, people, and questions

Some adopt a rigid system that answers all possible questions and so you don't have to think beyond its systems.  The other response is much more seemingly fragile but much more expansive, because it doesn't lay down a rigid framework.  It allows you to move within the mystery of it.  And that seems to be flowering right now.  I think people are more and more interested in embracing that because they've been through everything else.  It is a willingness to embrace mystery, a willingness to embrace not knowing, allowing that intuitive awareness to speak.

A Quote by Henric C. Jensen on intuition and thought

Intuition is the collected mass of information and knowledge that one has accumulated over the course of one's life coming together in one single ordered thought that relates directly to the input of the moment.

A Quote by Franz Winkler MD on analytical intellect, consciousness, ecstasy, heart, intuition, intuitive perception, life, mysticism, nature, perception, reality, science, solitude, soul, spirit, and time

Not too long ago thousands spent their lives as recluses to find spiritual vision in the solitude of nature.  Modern man need not become a hermit to achieve this goal, for it is neither ecstasy nor world-estranged mysticism his era demands, but a balance between quantitative and qualitative reality.  Modern man, with his reduced capacity for intuitive perception, is unlikely to benefit from the contemplative life of a hermit in the wilderness.  But what he can do is to give undivided attention, at times, to a natural phenomenon, observing it in detail, and recalling all the scientific facts about it he may remember.  Gradually, however, he must silence his thoughts and, for moments at least, forget all his personal cares and desires, until nothing remains in his soul but awe for the miracle before him.  Such efforts are like journeys beyond the boundaries of narrow self-love and, although the process of intuitive awakening is laborious and slow, its rewards are noticeable from the very first.  If pursued through the course of years, something will begin to stir in the human soul, a sense of kinship with the forces of life consciousness which rule the world of plants and animals, and with the powers which determine the laws of matter.  While analytical intellect may well be called the most precious fruit of the Modern Age, it must not be allowed to rule supreme in matters of cognition.  If science is to bring happiness and real progress to the world, it needs the warmth of man's heart just as much as the cold inquisitiveness of his brain.

A Quote by Evelyn Underhill on intuition, practicality, openness, and possibility

When you let intution have its way with you, you open up new levels of the world. Such opening-up is the most practical of all activities.

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on belonging, tao, taoism, self, wisdom, and intuition

Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong.

A Quote by Julia Cameron on dream, dreaming, faith, trust, and intuition

Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. And the faith to trust our own admission. The admitting is often very difficult.

Plans made swiftly and intuitively are likely to have flaws. Plans made carefully and comprehensively are sure to.

A Quote by John Burroughs on diversity, infinity, intuition, life, mind, mystery, nature, religion, science, simplicity, unity, universe, and wonder

Science tends more and more to reveal to us the unity that underlies the diversity of nature.  We must have diversity in our practical lives; we must seize Nature by many handles.  But our intellectual lives demand unity, demand simplicity amid all this complexity.  Our religious lives demand the same.  Amid all the diversity of creeds and sects we are coming more and more to see that religion is one, that verbal differences and ceremonies are unimportant, and that the fundamental agreements are alone significant.  Religion as a key or passport to some other world has had its day; as a mere set of statements or dogmas about the Infinite mystery it has had its day.  Science makes us more and more at home in this world, and is coming more and more, to the intuitional mind, to have a religious value.  Science kills credulity and superstition but to the well-balanced mind it enhances the feeling of wonder, of veneration, and of kinship which we feel in the presence of the marvelous universe.  It quiets our fears and apprehensions, it pours oil upon the troubled waters of our lives, and reconciles us to the world as it is.

John Burroughs (1837 - 1921)

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on intuition

Presentiment - is that long Shadow - on the Lawn -
Indicative that Suns go down -

The Notice to the startled Grass
That Darkness - is about to pass -

A Quote by Gavin De Becker on intuition, violence, and victims

Every day people engaged in the clever defiance of their own intuition become, in midthought, victims of violence and accidents. So when we wonder why we are victims so often, the answer is clear: It is because we are so good at it.
