  • Intuition can be achieved through Self-realization which in turn is achieved through dedication and meditation
  • Indian philosophy says, being intuitive is a proof that a soul is more connected to the higher power
  • Intuition is another way to say that your senses are heightened, that your observation, listening, awareness and visualising power are unique

Intuition“- One word with that can be interpreted in thousand different ways. Intuition is the ability of your mind to predict what might occur. Intuition turns you into a soothsayer. Intuition is your sixth sense.

No, we are certainly not talking about you seeing dead ghosts like the kid, Haley Joel from the movie, ‘The Sixth Sense’. We are talking about ‘You‘ having the human ability to predict possibilities instantly without the aid of reason or thought. In the words of science, Intuition is a rapid response mechanism of the brain that does not operate according to a set procedure and helps us to believe in certain possibilities.

Intuition as a spiritual knack-

Indian philosophy says that being intuitive is a proof that a soul is more connected to the higher power. This statement precludes that a Yogi or a sage will have a developed supreme vision, as he’s free from worldly affairs.

For a Hindu, intuition is far more important than intellect itself. To develop one’s intuition far more powerful than he possesses today, he would have to follow few steps:

  • Free himself/ herself from the world of phenomenon
  • Practice Dharana or concentration daily
  • Practice Dhyana or meditation daily
  • Be in touch with your Samadhi or Superconscious state

The ways that are mentioned above are also called Yogic ways of achieving Intuition.

Your intuition is what we call in Sanskrit- ‘Buddhi’ or higher intelligence. Ordinarily, human intelligence is adulterated by desires, anxiety, greed, and fear. Therefore, self-purification will remove these modifications and take you to a path of Self-realization. One at this point would have questions about Self-realisation and how to attain it. To find an answer to these questions, let’s read the next information.

The journey from blind belief to intuition is filled with self-discovery and there are few things one would have to remember in order to reach the point of self-realisation or as one might say Intuition:

  • A calm mind
  • Freedom from judgment
  • Receptivity
  • Curiosity and Interest
  • Attentiveness
  • Belief in oneself

The above 6 qualities might help one to build the pillars of Self-realization.

Myths about Intuition

Intuition is a magical ability and can be enhanced by knowing mantras and shlokas.

The above ways to strengthen one’s sixth sense if taken as just words without any hidden meaning can make you believe that intuition is a magical ability. Not only do you have to follow the above points blindly but also follow them religiously with utmost sincerity. No one Guru reached the apex by reading a book about mantras.

Intuition is a mysterious process and should be left to very religious people

Wrong! Intuition is another way to say that your senses are heightened, that your observation, listening, awareness and visualising power are unique. To make it simpler and to make the young generation understand, it is more like your long-term relationship with a person. Don’t you become more intuitive towards one another? That’s the power of intuition, it’s only achieved over time and dedication.

Death Knell For The Rape Culture

The death penalty for the child rapist is going to see the light of the day

Death knell for the rape culture

The death penalty for the child rapist is going to see the light of the day. Hearty thanks to the countless candle marchers. The credit also goes to those conscious media and columnists who all fueled the agitation and energized the activists. Here PM Modi’s dynamism can’t be overlooked either, because this ordinance, which was long overdue, has happened now.

Let’s all pray that the ‘fear of death’ will be an effective deterrent.  Hope, this will “frighten away” the real vices. In the meanwhile, it would also be very wise on the part of the government to look for other preventive measures since we have lot many “vices” in lot many avatars and assortments which only encourage the sex related crimes. There are also very dangerous “vices” which, when start to infect one’s thought-process, might give birth to the countless Trojan horses, Malwares, even virulent I-love-You. The virus infecting tragedy usually strikes ones very fast who are with weak inborn “antivirus”. This, in fact, turns “sane men into perverts” if one objectively analyses. But what is too bizarre is that some of such virus generating vices are let to flourish under the cover of silence while some are made to believe through media as “virtues” and while others as “talent” — with a whole lot of modish adornment and poetic adulation. Do you want to acknowledge that ones who cried hard against the despicable rape culture are the premier dealers of these vices? Some are producers too. I cut short here.  Because these days I fear the “thunder of hypocrisy” then the roars of the tiger in a jungle!

Yes, remaining complacent by mere hanging the perverts will be thus a downright immaturity. The identifying the causes of those vices that are hurting the society at large are equally important.  Of course, many try to overlook those vices as if they never make a bad impact upon the mindset an individual. Here I’ve an argument — has the heat of the hearth stopped boiling the water or burn your pack of currency notes to ash? As mentioned above, we can draw a perfect “analogy” between the virus infecting a computer leading to its inevitable “malfunction” with the people’s behavioral degeneration and wrong indulgences due to the continuous exposure and acceptance of vices.

However, it would surely be good if the Government and awakened women organizations boldly pinpoint those forces as well which are culpable for presenting women as no less than commodities, and the dealers of the vices. In this, one is skeptical whether we can turn to the media with hope, or with doubt! Because, very absurdly, the definition of “good life” and its values have now been willfully distorted and redefined to suit the situation, plans and programs such that they would help further the agendas of that forces which rule the roost.

Anyway, whether one agrees or disagree, disinfecting/detoxing the “mindset” of the society is the only pathway to the sane society which we are now crying for. The healthy thought, healthy attitude, healthy acts can only toll the death knell for any kind of rapes or any kind of depravity.
