When you smothered your intuition in thought, and stopped living by the rawness of how things felt, you were fatigued out of being amazed by life.

150: If what’s best is truth

Enough of this, reasoning dissonance and tactical logic – the reality is not always what logical deems. Safety in careful successes can hide the confronting facts of our meagreness of which disaster reminds us, compelling a fundamental modesty in the face of overruling chance. Intuition, at times bears a profoundly accurate foreknowledge of buried abilities and happier days to come, goading thee finally to leap at an unlikelihood with improvised optimism. Sometimes what we can know by study and experience tires, leaving after some speculations for intuitive action to resolve with informed spontaneity. Sometimes, the theories are too tormenting, – tardy to proof, and say what you will of this, but within reason if not comprehension, irrationality of means may to rational ends; often falling informs best.

In cowardice too often we smother our preferred or truest intentions for customary ideas less removed of tact. This when the eye concedes more risk than the hands can overcome, and with regularity becomes the automation, strengthened in its exercise. Who then wants to strive and fall short again, having not leapt a full leaps power, dwelling already his soon regrets? He may still, if only to find solace amid confusion of repair.

Hitherto every energy has allowed to being surpassed by a nobler action only thought of. And we know of diviner depths which we cannot articulate, where springs a tendency of genius so frighteningly accurate that surely some fatal misstep awaits, and so reason to curtail its directing. And has anything lately startled you truly out of all propriety? Remind yourself then, of when some spontaneity has occurred that you did not make your own; that you did not survive, or that ever failed to elevate you to new intellectual strengths, and you will not recall an occasion. As though we should snuff out the candle once in a while, and there in the dark by an innateness somehow will we reach out only for what’s needed.

140: A note from July

What a delightful invitation each morning extends, to enjoy buoyancy of all my cherished hopes for the day and fashion it as pleases my soul. Can a lesser situation than the feeling of perpetual Christmas morning be anticipated, if one is, by tenderly prodding of his rational intuitions charge, awakened? To consider a different mode of living, to merely survive such as many my joyless peers is the patting of a cobra from which my most essential spirit recoils, that cannot donate itself to such a compromise.

Why then are you alarmed those wild ideas unguarded thought entertains, are not by night abolished? Intuition has survived many years your uprightly attempts to disprove it in customary living and will ever meet you at slumbers fade, pressing hint until at last you begin for that place you were made.

With reduced impressiveness have Locusts whole fields devoured, to that I can accomplish of my reflections but freshly roused, before the Lark confounded is risen the day to greet. How Natures stability is violence by compare. Not to boast productivity, rather present appeals; mind its unending fount, intuition. You will never thus be long idle, or overly frenzied in business, rather balanced perfectly withal.

How long will you stray, with all your certainty against the tiny intuition that pleads your unheeding concern before, admitting you are lost, turning back to collect it sobbing on the forest floor?
