“The best that linear, sequential thinking can give you is a map of your potential experience. But it cannot guide you through that experience. When you are in the midst of the experience, there are signs that help you out. The detour sign tells you when there is a need for change of direction. Highway signs tell you to get in the right lane or the left. There are signs telling you where there are places to eat, to sleep or to get gas. Without reading those signs you could not have a successful experience.
Signs come from the interface between outer and inner reality. They are created through our intuitive connection with life. Signs happen only in the present moment. You don’t get a sign that says “go right tomorrow or sometime next month.” The sign says go right now or very soon. Signs show you how to navigate in the here and now. They are extremely useful and important. Unfortunately, they are almost totally neglected by the left brain, linear mind.
When you go on a journey, a map can be very helpful. Left brain information can help you to prepare. But once you embark, signs are a necessity. Are you paying attention to the signs that arise in your life? Or are you trying to do your life with a map alone?”
Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”
