More to life than logic

Enlightened

“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 do not know how or why.  All great discoveries are made this way.”  –Albert Einstein

 

“We suggest that Enlightenment shows a person that there is more to life than our intellect can see, and by interrupting our normal consciousness — reflecting on the creative levels of awareness that exist inside us –we can change our entire view of reality.  This is where transformation occurs, whether it is a tiny insight or an ‘aha’ experience, or a grand shift of awareness brought about through the experience of Enlightenment.”

–from How Enlightenment Changes the Brain: The New Science of Transformation, by Andrew Newberg and Mark Waldman, 2016
