He laughed at my statement.

All of us have something called intuition–it’s an inner guidance system.

When we meditate, intuition becomes more powerful. The best way to know if something smells right or not is through intuition, not through the traditional academic educational system. Although it provides thinking tools, intuition, in contrast, comes from spiritual growth and meditation.
