“All of our reasoning ends in surrender to feeling.” – Blaise Pascal.

“The heart feels what the eyes cannot see, and knows what the mind cannot understand.” (“The human heart feels things the eyes cannot see, and knows what the mind cannot understand”). – Robert Valett.

A toilet brush is designed for cleaning the toilet bowl after one has discharged the contents of one's bowels. It is not a spoon to be used for 'shit-stirring' and seeing what clever new patterns one can make in the bowl. Ultimately, the unwanted, excess excretion is to be flushed away by pulling the chain of will. The brush just assists the process. Similarly, the intellect is a tool for clarifying one's thoughts, reining in the rubbish so it does not spin out of control. This is to help one to control and direct one's mind rather than being pulled around by it. The intellect is there to enable us to perceive things objectively, to see things the way they are. Philosophy is the complementary opposite to this function. Surely, it is the means through which to understand the meaning of things as deeply as we can. The intellectual level of this process may involve substantial amounts of conjecture. Since philosophy aspires to the centre which is understanding, however, one ought to know the difference between theory and conclusion and be able to flush away the misconceptions that may have occurred along the way. It is by no means an exact science but it is its very openness and reaching out into the dark unknown that brings success to the philosophical explorer. One must carry the bright torch of true intent to discover the truth into that shadowy realm, otherwise the opportunity will be wasted. The power of the spirit must illumine the multilayered dragon of mind. Yet, we live in an age when limited rationality is taken as wisdom.

"How frequently do we attempt to understand spiritual wisdom with our human intellect! This leads to mental indigestion because we are attempting to digest spiritual food with our educated mentality. It will not work. Truth is not a reasoning process; therefore it must be spiritually discerned." - Joel S. Goldsmith (The Infinite Way, Unwin Paperbacks, 1952, p.10).

To the superficial, the philosopher is hypocritical. Yet, contradiction is an inevitable consequence of being honest enough to recognise and discard previous degrees of understanding for higher ones. The true philosopher learns to love and laugh at him or her-self. The bog-brush mentality favoured by modern academic institutions has reached its extreme in the realm of 'contemporary philosophy' in the shape of Jacques Derrida. The Algerian, so-called philosopher (piss-taker), who epitomises the worship of intellectual prowess in the West is merely helping to pervert a field to which he does not belong and which is already lost up its own derrière without his help! His endeavours appear to be helping to tip the balance even further away from truth and understanding.

“Even a don sympathetic to Derrida admitted that ‘deconstruction, which began as a heresy, soon turned into a dogma, and hardened into a theology, sustained by a network of evangelists and high priests and inquisitors.’ The Vatican of this new creed was Yale University, where the three ‘boa-deconstructors’ Jacques Derrida, Paul de Man and J. Hillis Miller reigned jointly as pontificating pontiffs, but the papal jurisdiction extended far beyond their own department of comparative literature. ‘Students taking courses in literature, film, “cultural studies” and even, in some cases, anthropology and political science, were taught that the world is just a socially constructed ‘text’ about which you can say just about anything you want, provided you say it murkily enough,’ the left-wing American author Barbara Ehrenreich complained. ‘One of my own children, whose college education cost about $25,000 a year, reported that in some classes you could be marked down for using the word ‘reality’ without the quotation marks.’ A critical theory that rejoiced in a multiplicity of meanings thus acquired the status of doctrine, excluding all viewpoints but its own.” – Francis Wheen (How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World, Fourth Estate, London, UK, 2004, p.81-82).

“Philosophers do not easily recognise that there is a point where thinking – like boiling an egg – must come to a stop.” – Alan Watts (The Way of Zen).

"We must go beyond the intellect into the silence of our intuitive hearts, where separation disappears and knowledge gives way to wisdom." - Ram Dass.

Human beings have separated their reasoning faculties from the awareness of their Spirit and true Self and actually identified with the intellect, which is really an instrument intended for service to the Self.

“Men are made for life, not for thought. And he who thinks he might go far in it and one day he will drown in it.” – Hermann Hesse (Steppenwolf).

“It’s all right to have a train of thoughts if you have a terminal.” – Bowker.

“The purpose of a fish trap is to catch fish, and when the fish are caught, the trap is forgotten. The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits. When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten. The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words? He is the one I would like to talk to.” – Zhuangzi.

If the mind can be compared to a sword, the intellect is the sharp tip and reason and clear awareness the sharp edges that accompany the full length of the blade. However deep one ventures to journey, reason and pure, conscious awareness are always on hand to clarify one's discoveries. The scales are tipped towards intellectual mind games and over-anal-ysis when the sharp tip of the sword is over-emphasised. Without first slicing in all directions with the edges of the sword, one has not grappled with any depth or cut through the veiled layers of the whole (universal consciousness). The Patriarchal attitude of going in for the kill as an end in itself often means that one kills the wrong guy because one failed to search for and identify one's target which was hiding somewhere in the woods.

The Sheriff of Nottingham's soldiers were too afraid. They would look ridiculous and come out humiliated because the realm of the unknown. Whereas if they stick to something they know, that is easy, tricks they have learned, picking on a starving peasant reduced to poaching the king's deer to feed his family, then they look like they are defending the law, doing their job, earn their keep, and feel powerful. The sword is being used to attack and impress but reaches only the tip of one's nose which, however big, does not take one very far afield. Corruption kills! One thing leads to another and, before you know it, the cancer has eaten away everything that was once healthy and nutritious. Then again, how far back do we have to go to find that? Ancient (pre-Aristotlean) Greece? Something that has a cancer growing inside it, however, needs to be killed. Such 'pointless' endeavours might then be helpful if they speed up the process of death and decay. Once we have disposed of the decomposing apple core of institutionalised realms of thought, perhaps we can start afresh.

"The true lover of knowledge," said Plato, "is always striving after being." The emphasis on activity makes it appear that one is doing something positive and worthwhile and the whole of our society is based on this false assumption. Thinking for its own sake succeeds only in restricting us to our own physical and intellectual sphere. Without stillness, there can be no wisdom. Without stillness, there can be no depth. The bow must be held steadily with mental strength and the power of one's eternal spirit must shine forth like an arrow penetrating the darkness of the forest. If the plane of ideas is as far as one rides, one is unlikely to see the wood for the trees. Philosophy is, above all, an alignment of the lower and higher levels of identity, the false, separate ego and the complete Self. The tip of the sword, or the arrow, can be used to scratch the surface of the apple. This pastime might impress those people who have no idea that the core even exists. That dispute was settled long ago was it not? 'Fact: God is dead; there is no God.'

If we do not respect the tyrannical governor and conform to his rules we will be punished like the accomplished marksman William Tell who was arrested for not saluting the hat placed in a town square. Dictators revel in their own power. They thrive on weakening people and turning them against each other, cutting them off from the source of power within themselves. We are powerless if we believe in someone else's God who invests the privileged few with power. We are powerless if we believe that there is no God and that, consequently, no one should have any power. There will always be somebody ready to take advantage of our vulnerability. And, they may behave ruthlessly, even forcing us to kill our own friends or family. If the offender believes in a God, the despot might terrify him with a cruel ordeal. William Tell's hidden arrow may represent his faith in the power and will of the Creator within him. He was told to shoot at an apple placed on his own son's head. If he refused to follow the governor's orders he would be killed. The governor, however, noticed a second, concealed arrow and asked what it was for. William Tell replied that it was to pierce the governor's heart if his first arrow killed his son. The apple probably represents his son's life force, or his heart. The hidden arrow, too, might be taken as metaphorical. The governor might have sensed an inner power which resembled the intention to kill him. The governor was so angered by Tell's audacity that he sentenced him to jail for the rest of his life.

The story could be informing us that William Tell was immortal, like Apollonius of Tyana who, when sentenced to death at court by corrupt liars, turned round and declared: 'You can't kill me, I'm not mortal.' It is no wonder the Romans suppressed that story in favour of the Nazarene's sacrifice. If even an immortal agrees to be put to death and is shown to be helpless and mortal after all what hope is there for the rest of us? We have been deceived surely? If the Nazarene was not mortal, he did not die at the hands of the Romans inspiring us to achieve immortality so that we too could defy our oppressors. Whatever ordeals they subject us to, we will survive and they will look like fools. Having learned that 'William Tell' had such power, the governor must have feared that he might liberate and empower the people. The only way to deal with him was to lock him up in the dungeon of a remote castle, assuming that he would be unable to escape by the means of his power.

A new crime had apparently received a new punishment. Tell would never see his son again and would suffer or know of his fate. By an act of providence, or faith, the governor's change of mind turned out to be a change for the better. En route to the castle in which he was to be held captive unto death, a tempest raged and the boat crashed on some rocks. People on board recommended that Tell be freed because he was the only person among them who could save them. Again, perhaps he was known to possess some hidden source of power. Tell seized a soldier's spear and escaped. It was not long before he shot the evil tyrant with a crossbow thereby releasing the country from its misery. Who knows how far back this legend dates. It is likely to have been adapted to suit the times. At any rate, legend has it that Switzerland was begun by their national hero.

“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” - Ray Bradbury.

The mind is a slippery customer while the heart is either open or closed, certain of the eternal source of life or living in darkness. The rational mind is an instrument used for thinking but when we identify with it the heart closes. It is readily applied to the world of matter and, as a result, those with a keen physical intellect in the modern world look outside of themselves for knowledge. The intellect easily becomes the most immediate function for people today. Cleverness makes a man, especially, feel good about himself in a society where cleverness is highly regarded. The likes of Albert Camus are celebrated because at least they think for themselves. This is a reaction to the subjective delusions encouraged by religion. Truth is to be found in the heart, through feeling, and the conscious mind can help us to be aware of it. God is not religion.

"Doubt is of the intellect. Knowing is of feeling. If there is doubt, there is not the knowing. Knowing contains no doubt at all." - P'taah (channelled through Jani King, The Gift, Light Source Publishing, 1998, p.99).

The fact remains that the intellect plays a secondary role in the field of philosophy. Where on earth did Derrida get 'philosophy is essentially writing' from? Where is such a premise leading to? Do people think it is clever to deconstruct anything vaguely meaningful, virtuous and worthwhile. When they avoid tasting the apple, what are they really afraid of? Being found out. But perhaps there is as yet, in our over-commercialised world, no niche for such tricksters. They might one day put their intellectual and communication skills to good use. Again, the intellect, like the toilet brush, can be used for either a clarifying or destructive purpose. Well, that just about wraps it up for God, says Zaphod Beeblebrox conclusively, in a matter-of-fact way, ready for the next action. 'No, hang on, you are overlooking the subtle reality underlying worldly life': if only Zaphod's second head were a conscience instead of a dummy, perhaps the result of downing one pangalactic gargleblaster too many. If only it were an oracle for the mind of Socrates. One can imagine a cool new Socrates calmly advising, 'just reflect for a minute, man.'

In Zaphod's case, the idea that two heads are better than one has been smashed like a pair of spectacles that have fallen on the floor and accidentally been stepped on by the fruit of a car salesman's loins. Clearly, the intuitive, caring, sensitive, feminine part of the mind which opens up to the collective unconscious and, potentially, to the superconsciousness of the Self, has become flaccid with under-use in her book The Answer Is Simple...Love Yourself. Live Your Spirit, Sonia Choquette describes intuition as ‘tuning into yourself’). All that is left is the obnoxious male ego that considers itself to be the centre of the Universe, identifies solely with the physical body and, therefore, considers the human brain to be the source of all intelligence and wisdom. Still, when people had two heads, when the right brain was more developed than the left, they were too dependent on others to decide and act for them. They had no power, identity or purpose. Yet, such a foundation enabled people to transcend form and, by accommodating the spirit, be one with its familiar Light. At some point in the development of the left brain, the right will reawaken and perhaps two heads really will be better than one. From Zhuangzi's anti-rationalism to Osho's emphasis on experiencing, the fruits of pure awareness have dangled on either end of the patriarchal tree providing the sweet succulence of wisdom to those willing to suspend judgement and simply be.

"I can see clearly now, the brain has gone." – Anon.

Truth has many layers. If you happen to be deep or complex you are likely to be awakening to deeper layers of truth all the time, peeling the onion as it were. Since it is easier to communicate the outer layers through words and people tend to rely on their rational minds, making them shallow, they make judgements based on limited self-awareness. The time for clinging to old beliefs, accepting the status quo and fearing change is over. It’s time to wake up. We have all experienced many things in many lifetimes and simply do not need to continue going round and round in circles. I know that many British people, for example, having been saved from the clutches of religion, approach the world with a 'this-is-all-there-is' attitude which, although seemingly realistic, has become a belief system (reinforced by material facts) of such rigidity that religions themselves would be proud to possess. Rational materialism is but a wall of limitation, a sleeping pill for people who wish to maintain a veil of illusion. Duality results from separating ourselves from the divine realms by identifying with the holographic illusion of dense matter. A collective perception exists that nothing lies behind that wall and no one can see let alone climb over it. You are ridiculed if you dare upset the applecart and awaken to any of the golden truths that shine their light into this world, universal truths from the Tree of Life beyond the citadel of denial.

“For the outer world is in turmoil, the minds of men agitated by fear, distrust, anger, resentment and man can find no answer to his problems because instead of looking to the Source of absolute wisdom, he endeavours to answer all questions purely with his mental or intellectual powers, or else on the material level of life.

"It is essential that man discover that spiritual part, and set himself to develop it. There are many schools of teaching, but only one central truth of which all else is but a part, and this truth is pure spirit. You are here on earth to develop your spiritual self, which is in truth the Son of God, the Christ-being, lying buried beneath many coverings, physical, mental and emotional.

"Within you is something more precious, more beautiful, more wonderful than man has ever conceived. You hear stories of a manifestation of that glory, through the saints or great ones, you see them through the radiance of divine life. You think to worship them but never to draw near to these great ones. You worship them from afar instead of taking hold of yourself and working to perfect your own character and your own soul, so that they become fitted for the divine spirit to manifest through you to your fellow creatures. Yet, this is the purpose of life.

"In the new Aquarian age, towards which man is advancing, there will be a stimulation of both spiritual and material aspects of man. You have a special mission or charge, you have come to earth for a special purpose, not only to develop your own divine consciousness, but also as a pioneer to serve the coming age. Truly serve your fellows. For when once a soul learns to recognise and obey spiritual laws, it will find itself following a spiritual pathway that seems to be already opened and prepared for it. It takes an angel to recognise an angel, a god to recognise a god, so until man develops the necessary qualities within himself, he remains unconscious in the presence of angels or gods.” – White Eagle (channelled through Grace Cooke).

Philosophy is a wonderful pursuit when it relates to experiential Reality. Then, it is like a light spreading out from a radiant centre, alive, resplendent. We know the Light through stillness. Busy minds are never still, never meditating, never knowing Reality. Yet, it is the busy mind that needs most to relax and sink deep within to its spiritual essence. What is the point of philosophy if not to experience God? All other philosophical enterprises are largely pointless and, ultimately, related to this experience anyway.

Whilst we are lurking around the 'might is right' theme, the Civil Service, or slavery, depicted in Nineteen Eighty-Four reveals the power structure of Western society when taken to an extreme and reduced to its horrific skeleton. An example of dutiful, bureaucratic obedience to the Party Is conjured up and added to the history files: "He was a total abstainer and non-smoker, had no recreations except a daily hour in the gymnasium, and had taken a vow of celibacy, believing marriage and the care of a family to be incompatible with a twenty-four-hour-a-day devotion to duty. He had no subjects of conversation except the principles of Ingsoc, and no aim in life except the defeat of the Eurasian enemy and the hunting-down of spies, saboteurs, thought-criminals and traitors generally." (George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four (London: Penguin Books Ltd, 1949, p.50). As a 'routine falsifier of records at the Ministry of Truth (that is, of Lies),' Winston Smith is often required to invent shining examples of loyalty that no cruel tyrant ever counts among his subjects because they are motivated by fear or greed. Only dastardly psychos and people who have been invented in retrospect and cannot speak for themselves since they have reportedly died hold such a position.

"Once again," continues Orwell, "he glanced at his rival in the opposite cubicle. Something seemed to tell him with certainty that Tillotson was busy on the same job as himself. There was no way of knowing whose version would finally be adopted, but he felt a profound conviction that it would be his own. Comrade Ogilvy, unimagined an hour ago, was now a fact. It struck him as curious that you could create dead men but not living ones. Comrade Ogilvy, who had never existed in the present, now existed in the past, and when once the act of forgery was forgotten, he would exist just as authentically, and upon the same evidence, as Charlemagne or Julius Caesar." (ibid, p.50). This activity of fiddling the records is no different really from any Patriarchal authority. Promoting 'truth' to suit the purposes of those with power is a matter of routine. "The mind-rotting propaganda of the Party" (ibid, p.viii; from the introduction by Ben Pimlott) is simply an extreme version designed to help us to recognise it in the world in which we live. People with power are so successful at 'pulling the wool over our eyes' and assuring us that 'everything is perfectly normal.'

“Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.” – Albert Einstein.

“Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority.” – Thomas H. Huxley.

Carl Gustav Jung, the eminent Swiss psychiatrist and founder of Jungian psychoanalysis, himself once claimed that he would never have been a Jungian analyst because he was an original thinker, true to his own ideas rather than a follower of other people's (see footnote). "Literature, musicology, art history and philosophy," writes Pirsig, "thrive in academic institutions because they are easy to teach. You just Xerox something some philosopher has said and make the students discuss it, make them memorise it, and then flunk them at the end of the quarter if they forget it. Actual painting, music composition and creative writing are almost impossible to teach and so they barely get in the academic door. True philosophy doesn't get in at all. Philosophologists often have an interest in creating philosophy but, as philosophologists, they subordinate it, much as a literary scholar might subordinate his own interest in creative writing. Unless they are exceptional they don't consider the creation of philosophy their real line of work." (Robert. M. Pirsig, Lila. An Enquiry Into Morals, London, UK: Black Swan Books, 1991, p.377).

In a chapter called 'The philosophy of philosophy,' T.E. Burke includes an excerpt by Sir Karl Popper, from Conjectures and Refutations (London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1974, p.66f): "'I believe that the function of a scientist or a philosopher is to solve scientific or philosophical problems, rather than to talk about what he or other [scientists or] philosophers are doing or might do. Any unsuccessful attempt to solve a scientific or philosophical problem, if it is an honest and devoted attempt, appears to be more significant than a discussion of such a question as 'what is science?' or 'what is philosophy?'YWe are not students of some subject matter but students of problems. And problems may cut right across the borders of any subject matter or discipline." (The Philosophy of Popper, Manchester University Press, 1983, p.1).

“Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” - Thomas Edison.

Thomas Edison (Dennis Patrick): “Yeah, well, I never got near university. I had to teach myself as I went along. Yes, and the first thing I learned was respect for the scientific process, reasoning based on provable assumptions, controlled experimentation, trial and error. But, an educated man of science [pointing in Tesla’s direction], he does everything by guesswork. He doesn’t even have ideas. He has hunches. No wonder he’s gone haywire over this AC business…
JP Morgan (Orson Welles): Tesla?
Nikola Tesla (Peter Bozovic): Despite all evidence, he is convinced the system of alternating current will never work.
Thomas Edison: Oh, I see, a man of visions and lightning flashes feels that Thomas Edison is suffering from delusions.

- Tajna Nikole Tesle (The Secret of Nikola Tesla) (directed by Krsto Papic, 1980).

We have been turned into left-brained prisoners, as David Icke suggests. I think therefore I don’t exist: because that keeps me hooked into the Matrix of illusion and the Reality of my true Self resides in and beyond my heart. The mind is such madness. You may think you want a better world yet you must open your heart if you are ever to help create it. For, the heart is the one eye of God, the Creative Source.

"My quest has taken me through the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional and back. And I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life. It is only in the mysterious equations of love, that any logic or reasons can be found." - Dr John Nash (from his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize).

“’And what is as important as knowledge?’ asked the mind. ‘Caring and seeing with the heart,’ answered the soul.” – Author Unknown.

“Every moment of thought is a moment away from your heart.” – Unknown.

"Truth is first felt in the heart before the mind. Those that look for truth through the mind before the heart will never find Truth." - Suzy Kassem.

“The only hope for man is to start looking into the ways of the heart. A great change, a shift, from intellect to intuition, from logic to love, is needed. To be initiated into sannyas means to be initiated out of the world of logic into the world of love.” – Osho (www.oshoquotes.net/category/osho-sannyas-quotes).

"Go to the truth beyond the mind. Love is the bridge." - Stephen Levine.

"All the games that mankind plays are illusions, for this reality can be dreamt away. The real world is that which lies within you, the encounter with emotion each moment you feel. The real world exists only from the standpoint of emotion, not governed by logic but by moving love." – Ramtha (channelled through JZ Knight, www.ramtha.com/default.asp).

“Human Being, don't ask how. That's such a linear question. Don't ask how. Instead, just ‘be’ and begin the intent to create these things in your life. Start a process that will accomplish it just through your intent alone. Intent to start the process actually starts it! We've said this before. There are those who are intellectuals here who want to know the process. And their argument goes like this: ‘Kryon, you can't expect us to do something so life-changing without understanding the process. We have to know the mechanics of it. We're not going to trust our lives to something that is a mystery in its function.’ Sounds like a pretty good argument, doesn't it? Well, I've got one back for you. From me to you!

"What happens today when you're done here? I'll give you the scenario that I think must happen for you to have asked the question. The intellectual goes out and gets in his automobile. Then he gets the manual out and studies the workings of the transmission, every valve, every gear. Then he continues with the manual of the engine, every valve, every gear, every lubricant, before he can ever drive it home. Right? I mean, after all, you would never trust your life to something when you don't know how it works! Or can you?

"You see? You all do! This may be a silly metaphor, but it's the one I want you to remember. Turn the key and start the engine of intent. Let this journey begin, for there is so much energy created with your conscious mind...a quantum energy that you cannot define or understand. Instead, trust the love, for it is the glue, it is the lubricant of the new energy on this planet. You don't want to hear that, do you, intellectual? For I've just told you that emotion is the key. Get used to it. Open your heart. This is the message of Kryon.” - Kryon (‘Attributes of the Shift,’ channelled through Lee Carroll, Moscow, Russia, 23 May 2009, www.kryon.com/k_channel09_moscow.html).

“In the 5th Universe was developed the power of mind thought, which is different form intellect. Let me clarify that in God all are of one mind and are whole. When Spirit leaves God’s mind to experience life in matter worlds, it then has separated minds capable of individual soul experience. Yet this entire universe kept one primary, unified thought, or intention, to love God, paramount, even though the souls were separated. By your standards this was miraculous! In humans, then, you need a love purpose to direct energy into thought or you will misuse it. A thought is energy moving its intention into reality. A thought is alive. God’s thought is energy in a single focussed creation; it does not analyse or break things down into separate parts as does human intellect. On earth many of your technologists have great intellects, but not wholesome minds. Mind requires a heart’s love for wholeness. Intellect is only 50% of thought. When intellect and intuition – or God knowingness – are combined, there is perfect balance.” – Jesus (‘The Christ,’ channelled through Virginia Essene, New Teachings For An Awakening Humanity, Spiritual Education Endeavours Publishing Company, Santa Clara, CA, US, 1986, updated 1994, p.66).

"The mind is greedy. You delight to hear about your own incarnations, long to have greater knowledge of your own life in this past. This is all symptomatic. When you are really ready to look into the mirror of your own soul, you will see just how agreeable - or the reverse - has been your past; and it takes a strong and wise soul to be able to face the truth...

"There are no short cuts to the Promised Land. You may get a ladder (and we will call this ladder the intellect) and run up it and peep over the wall into the promised Land and see it flowing with milk and honey. There are many people who thus climb and look over and think they know; they think they have reached the Promised Land. But it is only an illusion. There is but one way to arrive at the Promised Land, and that is by becoming suitably clothed in the right raiment, a raiment made out of the very substance of the Promised Land. This means that the soul can only know the Promised Land by becoming an inhabitant of it, by living patiently and happily and never losing sight of the guiding light from above, never allowing the light to go out in the heart.

"One last thing. When you have learned to hear the voice of intuition, your reason will not take primary place. Reason will have served its purpose in your life, and its domination will pass away, like all other things do when their purpose has been fulfilled. Out of reason will come intuition, or the divine intelligence of the God self. But unless you give intuition an opportunity to grow and develop in your soul, you will respond for a long time to the harsh note of reason, and be bound in its chains." - White Eagle (channelled through Grace Cooke, The Light Bringer. The Ray of John and the Age of Intuition, The White Eagle Publishing Trust, Liss, U.K., 2001, p.82-83).

"The time has now come for you all to develop your sixth sense, which can call intuition. Humanity has for long concentrated upon the stimulation and development of intellect. This sixth sense, or ray of light, is destined to open for you the secrets of nature, of creation, and all spiritual life and purpose." - White Eagle (channelled through Grace Cooke, The Light Bringer. The Ray of John and the Age of Intuition, The White Eagle Publishing Trust, Liss, U.K., 2001, p.103).
