The Rational Mind

 “Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of the moon.” Jalal al Din Rumi

This is the root of trusting your intuition over your rational mind… Last summer I took part in two Vision Quest. Both times I went out with expectations of what I should do, how I should act and what I should feel. Both times I was reminded that it is only when you let go of the labels and expectations that magic really happens. It was at the moment that I gave up all my learning and just went with my heart that the true experience unfolded. Naturally and easily, like a flower blooming. When you go to the lake expecting the moon you will not find it, but when you go to the lake for the joy of the lake you find the moon.
