Out On The Edge Or Down The Rabbit Hole

I don’t know how it feels to you but if there is any one group that is alive and well it is the “Time Bandits.” I think we can lay this squarely at the feet of technology.  Response time is a vanishing luxury. When I first entered the advertising world, several decades ago, we had three weeks to put ads together. When I left, the joke was we had three hours.

In this new environment we are all being forced, like it not, to rely on our intuition, to trust the process by committing  to a course of action not knowing how the components will come together. And this is happening on a large scale. General Motors committed to the Chevrolet Volt electric car manufacturing process knowing that the battery had not been designed, but trusting that it would be when it was finally  required.

If we must follow our intuition or begin action trusting that the right components will show up when needed, this territory becomes more important than it ever has. What are the maps and what are the rules? The hope for this site is that it  will be a place to report on the challenges of figuring out the dicey area of intuition versus desire, what seems to work and not work, how synchronicity can be a helpful tool. Maybe this is one of the reasons the social media are becoming such a comfort. we can all hold hands in real time.

The further hope is that by sharing these experiences, the processes will become more concrete, more reliable and more natural. It seems like Jung’s, “Collective Unconscious,” or Rupert Sheldrake’s “Morphogenetic Field” is where some of the the answers might reside.

    With reference to your thoughts on intuition, what I’ve been discovering lately is that there is a place in the centre of my chest, in behind my heart someplace, where what seems like intuition comes from. It feels like the point where I’m connected to the source of my humanity. But it can easily get blocked, distorted or hijacked by my desire body if I’m not in the broken open place as a persona – which seems to be when I’m experiencing enough humility and sincerity in my field to not screw things up. When I’m really open what seems to come into my awareness from this place in my chest is whatever I need to know/do in the moment, and that’s it. I call whatever that happens to be “the good”. It seems to come more as a kind of a feeling way of knowing things, rather than a set of verbal thoughts. I’m finding it useful to spend time most days enquiring into this place in me with friends. Out of this I’m experiencing that, like most things, cultivating intuition takes work – just a different kind of work than what my persona likes to do.

      Hi Mark,

      Interesting. I haven’t much thought about where it appears. I just think about how strong the presence is. Today for example I found that I was in a state of flow. Met several friends on the street and caught up. Patty needed some medical tests. We stopped by the doctor’s office. He was instantly available without an appointment. Going through my mail back mail I found a returned item to a law firm. I called to see what to do. The gal I talked to said, good thing I called, they were sending me a check today, but wanted to confirm where to send it.
