Do you know that the world’s most untapped natural resource is intuition?
Everyone has intuition; it is available in every being but unused in almost every being. The irony is – it is available very easily, but we seem to have lost this ability to tap into this natural resource because we have become too complex. Intuition is just like the smell of perfume, it disappears if we carry unconscious fear and greed. Our complex mind thrives on fear and greed. With fear or greed, they make our life juicy and give us something to do or worry about!
It is the wrong idea we carry about intuition which stops us from experiencing intuition. Normally we do not trust ourselves because since young we are taught by society not to believe in ourselves. Some people also think that having intuition is a kind of curse or suffering because it awakens one’s fear. This is true if one does not have the energy and intelligence to digest and handle the intuitive power.

Do you function purely out of logic or intellect in life?
Let me share with you why I have moved away from living with logic to living with truth.
We are trained by schools, institutions and society to function with just logic or intellect which is fact-based. Facts are logical which is easy for our mind, but truth is beyond logic which our mind cannot fathom. That’s why we always believe facts but doubt the truth. We can use facts to support our thinking and arguments which is easily accepted by society. By and by, we begin to believe that our mind is very logical, we are a logical person. We start to make our mind the master.
I was reminded of a perfect example given by Paramahamsa Nithyananda on facts vs. truth. The fact is you can draw a straight line. According to Albert Einstein, the truth is you CANNOT draw a straight line. To find this out, let’s do a little experiment.
Draw a straight line on a blackboard; next extend the straight line throughout the city. Then extend it further throughout the entire country. Until now it will be a straight line, again extend the straight line to the next country, and then extend it to the next continent. Soon you will realise it will be a curve of the globe. If you cover one more continent with your straight line, what will happen to your so-called straight line? It becomes a circle!
