The intuitive plane that lay beyond her rational mind wasn’t synonymous with instinct or superstition. Intuition was a more evolved state of mental consciousness through which it was possible to know the essence of Love. Intuitive consciousness was a step on the Path, beyond which lay alignment with Life itself. Life – the Will that gave form to the solar system and all that comprised it – could never be understood by the intellect alone. Words would always limit and distort. The separative nature of the lower mind would always grasp with greed or imprison through fear. True knowledge was only possible through integration. Integration was the key that could open the door out of the world of illusion and glamour – which trapped the human race in a nonsensical, never-ending cycle of suffering – and into a new sphere of potential.
Joy knew she had the strength to create the conditions that would anchor her consciousness permanently on that higher, more authentic, intuitive plane. Her brain could be the vessel for intuitive thoughts. It was her destiny and the destiny of all humans to reach these more expanded levels of awareness. To succeed required a change in thinking, leading to a change in being, resulting in a change in living. She had no choice. Life without that higher consciousness would make less and less sense to her. The way forwards was clear – she had to go out of her mind.
