INTUITION DAWNS FROM WITHIN

Meher Baba

 
The intuitive and transcendent understanding of the Truth is simple and effortless. It only requires the disburdening of the psyche. The psyche is modulated and contorted by the impressioned experiences of the false. It cannot therefore intuit the truth. The truth remains inscrutably hidden from the grasping dispositional mechanisms.

The truth is not in any way remote even from that consciousness, which is helplessly and rigorously determined by the distortions inflicted upon it by the environmental experiences of opposites. But the rigidity of the psyche prevents the intuition of truth. As soon as the psyche is released from the influence of the accumulated deposits of the past, it becomes Super-mind and unveils the truth, which so far had been mysteriously hidden by the ego-mind-heart itself.

In order to intuit the truth, consciousness has to be liberated from its ingrained and resistant inclinations. Intuition has been buried under the piecemeal lesson of the assailing experiences of the false. Learning is impressed from without, while intuition dawns from within. Learning thwarts intuition.

Therefore, the teaching of the mind by external impacts has to be counteracted by inner awakening. Then and only then can intuition, in its transcendent understanding, truly judge without yielding to the stupor of uncritical impressionability.
