When the body functions spontaneously,
that is called instinct.
When the soul functions spontaneously,
that is called intuition.
They are alike and yet
far away from each other.
Instinct is of the body—the gross;
and intuition is of the soul—the subtle.
And between the two is the mind, the expert,
which never functions spontaneously.
Mind means knowledge.
Knowledge can never be spontaneous.
Instinct is deeper than intellect and
intuition is higher than intellect.
Both are beyond the intellect, and both are good.
HEAD, HEART, AND BEING
Your individuality can be divided—just for the purpose of understanding it;
otherwise there is no division. It is one single unity, whole: the head, the
heart, and the being.
Intellect is the functioning of the head, instinct is the functioning of your
body, and intuition is the functioning of your heart. And behind these three
is your being, whose only quality is witnessing.
The head only thinks; hence it never comes to any conclusion. It is
verbal, linguistic, logical, but because it has no roots in reality, thousands of
years of philosophical thinking have not given us a single conclusion.
Philosophy has been the greatest exercise in futility Intellect is very clever
in creating questions and then creating answers, and then out of those
answers, more questions and more answers. It can make palaces of words,
systems of theories, but they are all just hot air.
The body cannot rely on your intellect, because the body has to live.
That’s why all essential functions of the body are in the hands of instinct—
for example, breathing, heartbeat, digestion of your food, circulation of the
blood. A thousand and one processes are going on inside your body in
which you have no part at all. And it is good that nature has given body its
own wisdom. Otherwise, if your intellect were to take care of the body, life
would have been impossible! Because sometimes you may forget to breathe
—at least in the night, how will you breathe while you are asleep? You are
already so confused just with thoughts; in this confusion, who will take care
about the blood circulation, whether the right amount of oxygen is reaching
your cells or not? Whether the food that you are eating is being analyzed
into its basic constituents, and those basic constituents are sent where they
are needed? And this whole, tremendous amount of work is done by
instinct. You are not needed. You can remain in a coma; still the body will
continue to work.
