Growth into Intuition p 39

Opening Remarks
As the consciousness ascends beyond the limiting hedge of sense mind, we begin to receive intuitive flashes from Above. Slowly there is a progressive intuitivisation of our being. The light of Intuition lights up not only what is of immediate concern to us but also that which is hidden Above in the Superconscient realms as also that which hides below in the subconscient terrains.

An eye awake in voiceless heights of trance
An eye awake in voiceless heights of trance,
A mind plucking at the unimaginable,
Overleaping with a sole and perilous bound
The high black wall hiding superconscience,
She broke in with inspired speech for scythe
And plundered the Unknowable’s vast estate.

A new sight begins to develop in us, at first during moments when we are withdrawn into inner fields of Trance, later it begins to operate even in the waking state. These flashes and glimpses take the form of inspired speech that climbs beyond the Mind’s vision and shows us that which to the mind is Unknowable.

She pierced the guarded mysteries of World-Force
A gleaner of infinitesimal grains of Truth,
A sheaf-binder of infinite experience,
She pierced the guarded mysteries of World-Force
And her magic methods wrapped in a thousand veils;
Or she gathered the lost secrets dropped by Time
In the dust and crannies of his mounting route
Mid old forsaken dreams of hastening Mind
And buried remnants of forgotten space.

The knowledge that the Ray of Intuition provides us is not merely some mystic knowledge but also world-knowledge. The play of world-forces that move events from behind the scenes becomes crystal clear. The past no more remains a guarded secret to be filled in with scant data and much guess and imagination. We become aware of History in a new way than our mind can know through a study of documents regarding surface events.

A questing Hound
A traveller between summit and abyss,
She joined the distant ends, the viewless deeps,
Or streaked along the roads of Heaven and Hell
Pursuing all knowledge like a questing hound.

The Vedas indeed describe this power of Intuition as a hound, the great goddess Sarama. She can know things from afar and can also penetrate into the hidden caves of the dasyus, ‘robbers of the deep’ and unveil their workings to us.

A reporter and scribe of hidden wisdom talk
A reporter and scribe of hidden wisdom talk,
Her shining minutes of celestial speech,
Passed through the masked office of the occult mind,
Transmitting gave to prophet and to seer
The inspired body of the mystic Truth.

The power of Intuition is burdened with Wisdom that take an appropriate body of words as it enters the inner mind and thence passes on to the external speech. It gives to speech the power to express the truth that is beyond thought or word thereby giving birth to the prophet and the seer.

She brought immortal words to mortal men
A recorder of the inquiry of the gods,
Spokesman of the silent seeings of the Supreme,
She brought immortal words to mortal men.

A privy to the truths that exists on higher planes she brings this knowledge of higher and deeper things that is kept as a guarded secret by the gods, to our mortal and earth-bound humanity.

Above the reason’s brilliant slender curve
Above the reason’s brilliant slender curve,
Released like radiant air dimming a moon,
Broad spaces of a vision without line
Or limit swam into his spirit’s ken.

This knowledge that comes through intuition is infinite in its nature and scope. It can illumine any field revealing hidden truths. Though its home is far beyond the realm of Reason it descends into the spiritual mind granting a luminous touch to thought and speech.

Closing remarks
We see here a detailed description of the workings of Intuition, its birth and path in the human consciousness, its action and role in the transformation of the mind.
