  • 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.

  • The Chabahar Port is of great strategic importance for India
  • It is in Iran and is being built and operated by India
  • This port will increase India’s trade with Central Asia and Europe

The Chabahar Port is a seaport in Chabahar, which is on the Gulf of Oman, near Iran-Pakistan border. Chabahar is the trans-shipment and logistics hub for the Makran Coast and Baluchistan province of Iran.

The tension between India and Pakistan is nothing new. There are several instances where both the countries have tried to obstruct each other’s political or economic agendas. This obstruction, along with other strategic reasons, resulted in the India and Iran’s deal on the Chabahar Port, which is crucial because of several reasons.

Here are few things about it you may not have known before :

  • Under the Trilateral Transit and Transport Agreement of 2016, the Chabahar port is the gateway to the Transport Corridor between India, Iran and Afghanistan, which allows multi-modal goods’ and passengers’ transport.

  • The agreement also states that India will develop and operate two berths in the first phase of the port. The contract is for 10 years and extendable. This time period excludes the first two years as they will be used for construction.

  • The Chabahar Port’s first phase, which was developed by India, and inaugurated by Iran on 4th December 2017, is of great strategic importance as it makes it easier for India to conduct trade with Central Asia and Europe.
  • Iran’s Chabahar port is also important for India’s trade because of Pakistan’s reluctance in allowing India to send goods to Iran and Afghanistan through its land territory.

  • The development of Chabahar Port will increase the momentum of the International North-South Transport Corridor whose signatories include India, Afghanistan and Russia. Iran is the key gateway in this project. It will improve India’s trade with Central Asia as well as Europe.
    The Chabahar Port has also reduced Afghanistan’s dependence on the transit road, which went through Karachi. Now, trade can be conducted via Chabahar Port too. Islamabad has accused India of trying to use this development as a means to destabilise Pakistan.

  • The Chabahar Port also acts as a counter to the barely 100 km away, Gwadar port in Pakistan, which is developed by China. However, Iran has defended that Chabahar is not a rival to Gwadar and Pakistan is invited to join in its development.
  • In October 2017, India sent its first shipment of wheat to through Chabahar to Afghanistan, in order to test the viability of the route.
  • India will also construct a 900-km Chabahar-Zahedan-hajigak railway line that will connect Port of Chabahar to Hajigak in Afghanistan. It will also connect Mashad in the north, providing access to Turkmenistan as well as northern Afghanistan.This project is worth $1.6 billion.
