The gift of instinct

Instinct is that sense which cannot yet be explained. Often in some situations, all we can fall back on is instinct in order to help us make decisions. In my own case, I have seen that whenever I have ignored my instinct guiding me, I have suffered the consequences.

Instinct is there in consciousness in order to help us. Much of life is incomprehensible and humankind is definitely not all-knowledgeable. Even at the individual level, there are so many things in life which a person is unable to know. He just does not get the time to learn all that the race collectively knows. This is where instinct comes to his rescue.

Instinct teaches us trust. If we can trust our instinct, we can often avoid many dangers. Thus, this gift of nature, if cherished, works wonders for us and helps us travel through life safely.

"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why." It is believed that intution or instinct what ever way you call has always our good interest at heart.

Some things are inexplicable such as instinct. The latter often works wonders and proves to show more reliability than that of logic and practicality.
