In the final analysis superstitions, omens and intuitions are the reflections of a conscious effort by an individual to detect the subtle signals sent to us from the natural world.
If we are convinced that life and matter around us are mute, then we are confined to the silence of the scientifically concrete.
If we are open to subtlety, then the world resonates with significance. The black cat, a rock tumbles in front of you.
Some folk never listen to the little hairs when they stand up on the back of the neck. I listen to those hairs because they are my intuition speaking to me.
From, ‘The Scalpel and the Soul’, by Alan Hamilton.
