Today is my 30th birthday, and the beginning of the new phase in my life. I didn’t plan on these changes myself, but it is a nice coincidence how things fall into place these days. Often people say things like “everything happens for a reason,” “nothing happens before its time,” and “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” And I don’t really believe in those things, but I can certainly understand why people do.
Three years ago, when I turned 27, I wrote a post titled “There is no happiness in life.” And I read it again today, and I still think the same way. That’s why this day is a very normal day for me, I woke up and did the exact same things I usually do on Saturdays. And I have absolutely nothing planned, except for being by myself and review my life as it has progressed so far, something I always find interesting to do.
One thing I have seen so far, is that it is important to rely on my intuition. In those cases where I had neglected to listen to it, things clearly didn’t go very well. Intuition is basically your uplink to what David Icke calls “The Matrix” in his book “Infinite Love Is the Only Truth: Everything Else Is Illusion.” If you haven’t yet read that book, you should get it ASAP. David Icke comes closest to explaining life than anyone has ever done before in my opinion. When Albert Einstein said “The only real valuable thing is intuition,” he knew exactly what he was talking about. Christopher Reeve provided an even better explanation when he said: “I think we all have a little voice inside us that will guide us… if we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do.”
The key thing is that you have to be able to indeed shut out all the noise and clutter from your life and learn to listen to what that voice is saying. And it is not always easy to do this. You can’t let opinions of others or your own desires get in the way. You have to objectively listen. And when I say you have to listen to a voice in your head, I’m not saying you have to be crazy. The “voice inside you” is just another name for what others call “intuition” or your “gut feeling” etc. It is that something inside you that tells you what to do and provides guidance. You don’t know where it comes from, you don’t know why it makes you think certain things, you can’t explain it, but you just know. From Wikipedia:
Intuition is apparent ability to acquire knowledge without a clear inference or the use of reason. It is “the immediate apprehension of an object by the mind without the intervention of any reasoning process.” Intuition provides us with beliefs which we cannot necessarily justify.
You can’t justify it or reason about it, because it’s basically knowledge planted inside your head. And when others ask you why you think so, and to explain yourself, you usually can’t. Those beliefs come from somewhere else. David Icke explains in his book where they come from.
During most of my life I have relied on intuition, and it has served me well 100% of the time. And in those cases where I chose to ignore my intuition, things went bad. But even when things went bad, my intuition was still there providing guidance on how to get out of a bad situation.
So when Einstein said “The only real valuable thing is intuition,” he absolutely knew what he was talking about. And my guess is, he relied on his intuition most of the time and learned of its value from experience.
