POP16 - Intuition

If you have some suggestions or comments you would like to pass on to me about these pages you may do so at:

Now in the POP Series we come to The Fourth Path to Truth. It is the chosen path of the of the Fourth Type of Souls.

We can call it by many names - Testimony of the Holy Spirit,

    • Conscience
    • Inspiration
    • Intuition
    • Enlightenment
or any one of its many other attributes.

It is the BRIGHTEST Path to Truth.

Without this Divine Spark, no discovery, religious or scientific can be made.

Without it, the processing of reason and the human brain would be as dead and unimaginative and uncreative as a computer or any other machine.

Every scientific discovery, every advance in human thinking, comes from In-sight, sight from with-in. Sight from beyond, beyond the boundaries, that existed before.

That Divine Spark rests within each of us, so long as we breath, and have life.

Every student of mathematics, draws upon it to initially comprehend that 2+2=4, or any higher concept. For every learner, each and every concept, comes as a new insight, a new manifestation of the intuitive.

This power of the mind, soul, like all others is developed through practice. The power of reasoning, using the brain, like any other muscle, must be developed through exercise. The storing up of knowledge, from authority does not come in a minute. All the skills of the senses, being able to sing like an opera star, or observe like a diagnostic physician, or to listen, or feel, require a degree of training that most never master or even realize exists. Most particularly is this true of man's highest mental capacity, intuition.

Concentration, Contemplation, Meditation, are skills still largely undeveloped, in the majority of mankind. Yet, these are the disciplines needed to develop intuition.

It seems to come unheralded and unbidden, but be assured never to the unprepared.

Intuition is the brightest, most joyful, most beautiful path to Truth.

And yet, intuition is the DARKEST, most misleading, path of stupid superstition and vain imaginings. In this path, as many are led astray, with the possible exception of authority, as in all the others combined.

As great a barrier as may be the senses, with its false sense of reality, and its inducements of idle pleasures, As faulty as man's reasoning may ever be, intuition alone can sweep the soul into the paths of error with a degree of confusion from which only by the Grace of God will one ever be recovered.

For it is intuition that whispers into the ear of every convinced believer, ONLY my truth is real, all the others are false. Only you are safe and saved, all others have gone astray. But reason stays its claim, because how can there be so many different claims to be the one and only truth?

And so, we have examined the Four Paths to Truth, and have found none to be infallible. Some would say there is a fifth path. The eclectic path of combining all four. But while this is the proper thing to do, and the SUREST path, it too still remains fallible.

And so, in the human condition, we remain BELIEVERS, NOT KNOWERS of ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY.

And so, some become discouraged, and say, since I can know nothing of a certainty, I will believe nothing. I will be a skeptic and a scoffer. Let others be subject to their idle fancies and vain imaginations, I will remain steadfast in my knowledge that they can know NOTHING.

But, my dear friend, THAT is the path to DEATH, UNBELIEF, Dissolution, and Chaos. Nothing becoming nothing, yielding nothing, attaining nothing. Nothing.

Every Vibrant Soul, must grasp reality, as it is presented to us. It must travel each of the Four Paths to the best of its ability, and remain always open to change, in recognition of the fact that it is fallible.

For this is the Path of Power of both Science and Religion. Building upon the Four Paths, and discovering reality, TESTING it, USING it, Re-examining it, Improving upon our comprehension of IT.

For while our feet remain anchored in the mud and morass of DOUBT, our spirits soar upon the Paths of Truth. Building bridges and skyscrapers, traveling to stars, observing the Macrocosm and the Microcosm, evidencing the Power of Accomplishment.

And then, we have it upon the Best of Authority, from those Divine Prophets, that if that soul asks, it Will receive, if that soul knocks, it Will be opened unto it, and THAT seeker will be guided from shoals of insecurity and Unbelief, to the secure safety of the bay of Belief in God, and that which He has Revealed.

Thus have I concluded my explanation of the Four Types of Souls and the Four Paths to Truth. In my next letter I shall proceed onto what is called The Most Clear Proof in our journey to discover the Source of Truth and The True Prophet.
