A very wise man (Albert Einstein) once said... "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift." And how right he was, and still is in the most part.
We live in a world where wisdom has been replaced by knowledge & knowledge replaced by information... Once upon a time, ancient civilisations knew things that seem unimaginable to us, particularly for those times... Celestial mechanics, perspectives on quantum physics, architecture.. To name a few. But how?! This day and age we "learn" outwardly... Through observation, reading, and experience. However, the ancient approach to gaining knowledge was in refining the ability to look inward... Accessing inner knowledge, and only ever passing it on through oral tradition.
Today's world sees a movement to re-awaken this inner-knowledge through practicing ancient techniques, connecting with Mother Nature and in turn ourselves. This is a huge part of my mission with @ookushana - helping others (and myself) seek truth that lives within us all... .
