After recently attending a Buddhist meditation I rediscovered how closely happiness is linked with acceptance

Happiness can exist only in acceptance – George Orwell

Intuition is the process of knowing yourself, knowing your boundaries and following your instincts in life

 

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself ” – Alan Alda

The dictionary definition explains intuition as being the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning. Interestingly, fear can often mask intuition- and the two are closely related. When we follow our intuition, the outside world responds to our trust. We don’t avoid any of life’s challenge’s, however we begin to recognise the flow that occurs when we lean ever so gently in to knowing ourselves on a deeper level.
