What About Us?

How can it be that animals
have such keen instincts and
we do not? If one looks at the ´
perfection of nature, this
seems out of sync, yet there
is ample evidence that we also
instinctively know things at
times, so how is it that we fail
to follow this inner guidance?

Living in the jungle is teaching
me to pay attention to details,
to warnings, to the heritage of
my forefathers in following pre
animal instincts. The more
I do so, the stronger this
guidance becomes.

The noise and pollution of the
cities hamper people’s ability to
perceive subtle chances in their
proximity. Added to that is our
rush-a-holic lives that leave us
in a constant state of stress and
fatigue. Our bodies are lethargic,
filled with toxins from our food,
water, and air. No wonder we have
difficulty perceiving the instinctive
guidance that we so badly need.

The first step in reclaiming this
life-saving tool is to begin to
trust those feelings. Explore them;
as you use them, they become
stronger. Make a note of them, writing
them down for a period of time to
help you see how frequently they come.
Pay attention to coincidences and
serendipity, You will be amazed at
what you discover.

  1. partly we civilize our instincts out of ourselves and partly complacency

    I have lost count of the number of times I see people just stroll out into traffic

    then everyone’s all surprised that no one else took responsibility for their safety and they are gonna have a bad pavement day and a dirt nap.
