I always follow my intuition. I have found that it is vital to my well being. Historically, I have learnt the hard way by not following my intuition and my instincts, and so, they are an important guiding forces in my life.
This does not always make for a convenient life. Following my inner voice often sends me down paths that are not understood by those around me, but I've learnt to accept my path, my truth, and that it is OK to be different. In fact, I cannot be any other way in this world and be happy, or at peace. Each of us are ultimately answerable only to ourselves.
So if I drop out for a while, if I don't return phone calls or messages for a bit, if you don't hear from me, I'm usually spending time within, recalibrating, discovering, learning, questioning, finding clarity, following my intuition, instincts and imagination, venturing down the rabbit hole, or perhaps to the lands at the top of the Faraway Tree. But don't worry, I'll be back in a bit. I have much to do here. When the clouds have parted and I feel part of this world again, I'll again integrate back into the flow of Planet Earth, hopefully with a new understanding of self, feeling renewed and refreshed, with new eyes.
