Albert Einstein said that: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift”.
When you honour the sacred gift and faithful servant, the resultant life experience can be blissful, rich and fulfilling. The life choices you make can be arrived at intuitively, and within that, ration is a very useful analytical tool. Furthermore, there will be a cessation of the life of regrets you might have lead in the past.
When you reflect on what I have written in this paragraph, you may arrive at the inference that honouring the two gifts can be a reliable mechanism for avoiding a good number of adverse states of being. States like, situational: stress, pain, and environments that do not facilitate or foster your growth and well-being. The situations mentioned here can impede the achievement of one’s goals due to his/her prolonged preoccupation with remedial measures or rectification of the disadvantage he/she incurred.
Very often, the pre-cursors to extricating ourselves from unwelcome and uncomfortable situations and environments lies in making use of the intuitive mind and the rational mind, which complement each other and should not mutually exclusive.
I watched a professor giving a public speech at a foreign conference. The professor upbraided a particular category of officials who were thought to be contextually honest, and the professor seemed to suggest remedial steps that needed to be taken.
I could not judge the officials in question neither did I know their circumstances. However, from my perspective as a healer and one who is into spirituality, this left me thinking that in whatever circumstances we find ourselves in, the use of intuition is very helpful and a sacred gift indeed.
May any failures incurred be a source of inspiration to do better; despair should not be an option.
