Frances E. Vaughan

  • Intuition is true in the same way that sensation is true: it is your experience, and you know it for what it is.

  • ... intuition of spiritual truth is something you already have inside you. ... This kind of truth is recognized, not learned.

  • Imagery is the universal language of the unconscious.

  • Knowing that something is going to happen before it happens, for example, is not strange if you discard linear, spacebound notions of time. Intuition is a way of knowing that transcends both time and space.

  • The willingness to be wrong, to make mistakes and give up the attachment to being right, is one factor that accelerates learning.

  • Intuition is not opposed to reason, but works with it in a complementary fashion. Typically, flashes of intuitive insight follow the exhaustive use of logic and reason.

  • ... trying is usually an indication of being stuck. Trying to make something happen is not making it happen. Trying to observe the mind is not the same as observing it.

  • Whatever is said may also be denied. Every realization contains the seeds of its opposite.

  • Everyone has a chronological age, and everyone is also timeless. The essential being who you were as a baby and who you are today remains always the same.
