The intuitive spirit-nature we all possess is a beautiful gift, but too often that gift is suppressed. In many ways people have been denatured and have lost the magnificent gift of intuition. The most accomplished people do not solely rely on knowing the technical aspects of their pursuit. While technical knowledge is useful, it is only a small part of a true master's brilliance. The master of any craft is first a master of self; cooperating with innate intelligence within. Brilliant people have learned to detach themselves from limiting absolutes and trust their instincts to guide them to excellence. Achieving the creative pinnacle involves trusting the unknown guide within oneself versus intellectual force and control. Getting to know your inner intuitive guide is a liberating and meditative process of surrender. You cannot create a master of any craft; you can only help them to see their own innate genius within.

"He who looks outside dreams. He who looks within, awakens." — Carl Jung

We already have everything that we need to know in our intuition and our instincts. It is pointless trying to absorb all the knowledge in the world. That is partly because we do not need so much of it, and partly because we can never achieve knowing everything in our lifetime. What we do need is to be open to what we already have within us.

"The only real valuable thing is intuition." — Albert Einstein

Knowledge can be useful as a tool and reference point, but there is so much more than just knowledge alone. All the masters knew there was more — in simplicity. People who seek after knowledge, only for the sake of knowledge, become trapped in a process where the means becomes the end. People like that become seekers for seeking's sake, and they seldom experience the joy of knowledge as a state of consciousness. Instead, they spend their lives trying to learn everything that exists beyond them, in the hope of finding the truth that already lies within.

Connecting with essential truth and knowing oneself is the only way. Surrender is the path to freedom through our unique authenticity. Through surrender you may experience the flow of life not through the narrow lens of the mind, but through the vast refuge of the heart. Nothing else is needed — it has always been for, about and within you. Freedom is the realization that it is sufficient to simply be a human being.

I looked under every rock.
  I looked in every flower.
I looked between the seconds.
  I looked in every hour.

I looked in every shadow.
  I looked at every Star.
I looked in every meadow,
  At things that were, and are.

I found every darkness,
  I found every glory.
I found every choice,
  In every single story.

I found I AM the difference,
  My thoughts are free to be.
I found it isn't what it seems—
  I found, it's only me.
