Each one of us is potentially divine. In the womb of our consciousness, we are eternally carrying within us the ultimate peak of manifestation, the illumination of intuition. Intuition is the Universal Intelligence that flashes within us when, even for a split second, we are connected with that inner, indwelling spirit that’s part of each of us. The intuition flowers, it sparks, and it ignites our pure intelligence with information and knowledge unheard of.
When information is digested and assimilated, it becomes knowledge. When knowledge is taken to the deeper level of intuition, when the light of the soul or the spirit purifies it, then it is not just knowledge. It is enlightened and multiplied knowledge; it becomes our bone and marrow and it is ours forever. That is Wisdom.
How do we gain access to the greatest gift of intuition? The greatest of the scientific discoveries are all such flashes and they are called innovations or discoveries. It is a gift from beyond. The mind-body has to be ready for the flash to happen, the light to ignite, and the flame to burn.
Let us hear what Steve Jobs, a genius of a man, had to say about his own experience when he first tried to tame his mind through mindful meditation:
“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is,” Jobs told his biographer, Walter Isaacson. “If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things – that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more.”
When we move within by using our mind to fathom the depths of our inner consciousness, we gradually move from the outer gross world to the inner world of energy, vibration and subtlety. As we persevere through the difficult path of being more and more mindful, alert and attentive, we come to see the infinite intelligence of this subtle world, which is one, though manifested as many. The Yogis and Enlightened Masters reach that state of seeing with the vision of intuition, the oneness of all that is manifested, and then what remains with them is the Love and Compassion for all that is in this universe.
Yes, the Divine gifts us with this extraordinary faculty of intuition which goes beyond the threshold of conditioned intelligence. Intuition is to be in tune with the Cosmic Intelligence. Then one is able to catch the frequencies of the music of the spheres, to be the channel of divine communication, to be tuned to God’s language for the earthly spheres, and ultimately, to be the bridge between God and man!
