(methodological), still-in-control/same-way-of-being Virtual Freedom before becoming actually free.
Intuition: Immediate apprehension by the
mind without the intervention of reasoning. Immediate insight. Spiritual insight or perception. Oxford
Peter: A form of psychic radar employed in
an attempt to ‘feel’ out the other situation or person. It usually involves relying on one’s own fear-based interpretations based on past
emotional pains or assumed future pains. It is held in higher esteem than an accurate common-sensical appraisal of the facts as perceived by
the physical senses. Controlled testing of intuitive perception or ESP (to use the scientific term) demonstrates that rarely, if ever, does it
produce better results than guesswork – about fifty percent.
Intuition has as its basis the instincts of fear, aggression,
nurture and desire, and these operate automatically in driving and colouring our perception of all people, things and events. Further overlaid
on this ‘hard wiring’ are the disillusions of childhood – of being bullied, deceived, lied to, falsely accused, harassed, smothered,
ignored, etc. When we finally emerge into the world from the bosom of the family and the training ground of school we are in fact lost, lonely,
frightened and very cunning with good reason. To intuit or be on ‘psychic guard’ is the only method of survival open to us, but therein
lies the seeds of our own imprisonment.
Living in fear simply locks us away from the possibility of directly experiencing
the delight and magic of the physical actual world. To drop this ‘shield’ is considered as sheer madness or naïve in the extreme, but the
proof that it is not only possible but highly desirable is experienced in the peak experience. To be without one’s ‘guard’ up, even for a
brief time as in the ‘self’-less state of a PCE, allows an intimacy, purity and innocence to be experienced which is fairy-tale like in its
magic. One glimpses, for a brief period, one’s destiny. The wide and wondrous path to actual freedom offers a sure-fire way of living free of
fear and, as such, the need for any intuitive defences or attacks simply fall by the wayside. Good hey...
