"Intuition is like instinct because you cannot do anything about it.
It is part of your consciousness, just as instinct is part of your
body. You cannot do anything about your instinct and you cannot do
anything about your intuition. But just as you can allow your
instincts to be fulfilled, you can allow and give total freedom to
your intuition to be fulfilled. And you will be surprised at what
kinds of powers you have been carrying within you.
Intuition can give you answers for ultimate questions – not verbally
but existentially. You need not ask, What is truth? Instinct won’t
hear, it is deaf. Intellect will hear but it can only philosophize; it
is blind, it can’t see. Intuition is a seer, it has eyes. It sees the
truth – there is no question of thinking about it.
Instinct and intuition are both independent of you. Instinct is in the
power of nature, of unconscious nature, and intuition is in the hands
of the superconscious universe, the consciousness that surrounds the
whole universe, the oceanic consciousness of which we are just small
islands – or better, icebergs, because we can melt into it and become
one with it.
In some ways intuition is exactly opposite to instinct.
Instinct always leads you to the other; its fulfillment is always dependent on > something other than you.
Intuition leads you only to yourself.
It has no dependence, no need for the other; hence its beauty, its
freedom and independence.
Intuition is an exalted state needing nothing. It is so full of itself
that there is no space for anything else.
In some way intuition is like intellect because it is intelligence"
Osho, From Misery to Enlightenment, Chapter IV
Intuition plays outside of your rational mind. Intuition cannot be understood logically or philosophically because intuition is a property of your consciousness or life force. You, as a conscious living being, intuitively know what's right and what's wrong. Intuition is doubtless and right by itself; it doesn't need any reasoning to make it valid.
Intuition can never come as a product of your thinking. Intuition can never take u a form of a logical conclusion. Intuition is more like love: it rises spontaneously.
