If you do that then you will be the happiest and most satisfied person in life.
So how do we do it?
By spending some time in silence and contemplation daily. Or whenever possible, given the challenging and busy lives that we lead. The ideal place is your prayer room or your quiet space. It can also be done while doing other favorite activities of yours such as walking, biking, exercising, showering, taking bath etc. The key is to be alone so that you’re able to listen or talk to yourself.
The problem is that we can’t do without Noise :-). We need the radio, music, TV or headphones all the times. If that’s the case, how will we ever connect with ourselves?
Each one of us has inherent strengths or some unique talents. We are here in this world to fulfill a purpose and the “art of listening to our heart” allows us to discover the very same. It allows us to be in sync with the Higher Purpose and relieves us of everyday anxieties.
When we connect more often with ourselves, we gain access to the Faculty of Intuition. There’s tremendous energy and inspiration because it is coming from the very source of everything. You’re connecting with the Creator.
Wow!! Think about it for a minute!! Isn’t that a wonderful thing?
Let’s see what the Great Yogi/Master Paramahansa Yogananda has to say about Intuition:
“Man’s highest faculty is not reason but intuition: apprehension of knowledge derived immediately and spontaneously from the soul, not from the fallible agency of the senses or of reason.”
Every day we are confronted with difficult problems or complicated situations for which we either don’t have enough information to make clear-cut decisions or for which there is no easy intellectual answer. At these moments, we all wish for another way to know how to make the right choice. This is where the Intuition comes in play, not only will it help us making the right choice but it will also make us “peaceful at heart”. We will be able to uncover the mysteries of life, creation and beyond.
I wanted to use the examples of some great personalities from entirely different walks of life, therefore shared the wisdom of a great Scientist and a Yogi.
Now let me end this post with a quote from Steve Jobs:
I am trying to do this!!
I’m glad, we only get better at it if we keep trying. 🙂
Thanks for sharing despite your busy schedule of African adventure.
Reading Steve Jobs’ biography now — definitely a lot of great things to take away from it. Great post!
Yep, he is much more than genius.:-)
