In other words, a part of you is much smarter than you are.

The wise people regularly consult that smarter part.

Inner wisdom supports right action

[In minor matters I] consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within…
