Intuition comes very close to clairvoyance; it appears to be the extrasensory perception of reality” - Alexis Carrel - won The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1912
There is no need to live in constant crisis, confusion and dis-ease. The constant perpetuation of that state is avoidance of calm - fear of nothing to "do." When you realize that half of the stuff thrown at you by others is busy work...to give them a sense they have "done" something...it is easier to get off the giant hamster wheel and do something for yourself.
Staring out the window, looking at the stars or contemplating a blade of grass is not doing nothing. It is valuing the here and now. It may or may not be dreaming or day-dreaming. Whatever it is, given the ephemeral state of our current being, it might be the very best thing we get to do. At that moment of disconnect - we open wide to pure potential.
