When the mind is said to be intuitive and you develop it, it is an investment. It is as good an investment as your hair-do, as your good clothes, as your good language. And then whenever you want the answer to something, you don't have to call on anything. You have to call your own computer. Just stop yourself. And in the click of moments, your own self will talk to you.
2/21/78

Man without intuition is a man in the dark. You may have a candle, but if it’s not lit, it doesn’t mean a thing.

It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do; nothing outside of you shall solve your problem.

5/23/89

Whenever you meditate on the tip of the nose, the frontal lobe will become hard. As you meditate more, it will become like lead. And the funny thing is, one day automatically it will not be lead.

Women’s Camp, July 1994

5/11/90

When your ego works, intuition doesn't; when your intuition works, ego doesn't.
3/26/91

Without intuition you have no defense; you have no horns, no hoofs, and no skin hard enough to protect you. You have intellect to develop intuition through intelligence, so that you can always be conscious of the known and the unknown of the projection and the rejection, into the guidance of tomorrow with the strength of today, with the experience of yesterday.
5/23/89
