Your Intuition: Contacting, Listening and Acting

“By learning to contact, listen to, and act on our intuition, we can directly connect to the higher power of the universe and allow it to become our guiding force.”           

–Shakti Gawain (American Writer and Teacher on Human Potential, 1948-)


Surrender and Detachment

Detachment and surrender are not popular these days, even amongst many spiritual seekers.

But is it worth thinking about the value of each.

“All men are made in God’s image; but to be in His likeness is granted only to those who through great love have brought their own freedom into subjection to God. For only when we do not belong to ourselves do we become like Him who through love has reconciled us to Himself. No one achieves this unless he persuades his soul not to be distracted by the false glitter of this life.”          

–St. Diadochos of Photiki (Theologian, Mystic, and bishop of Photice, Epirus, c.400-c.486)
