To Realize Divinity,  Inhabit the Body, Not the Mind

The Process of Realization
Samyama - The Yogic Process of Gaining Insight
"The group of three (dharana, dhyana, and samadhi, practiced) together as one,
is samyama - the perfect regulation of citta (consciousness).
The result is the brilliance of insight." ~ Yoga Sutras: III-4-5


Truth is not exceptional. Truth is all that is real.
All your thoughts of harm and danger are but a misuse of imagination.

Kaivalya means liberation from the bonds of sensory perception -
the freedom to think constructively - to employ samyama creatively.
Embodiment is the means to that end.

I am what I was seeking. God Realization is contentment in one's own self-awareness.

The Relationship Between Pleasure and Selfless Service
Self-Realization is still only the beginning. Self-fulfilled is self-fulfilling. Whenever we forget, we remember. An-nafs-ar-Radiyah asks the question "how pleased are you?"Have you finished your quest for self-fulfillment? Are you realized now and no longer interested in pursuing it? Have you entered now wholeheartedly onto the path of selfless service and thus become truly pleasing to all? This is the relationship between pleasure and Selfless Service.

INTUITION
Defining Intuition as "a physical perception being mentally noticed" -
A "gut" feeling that the body perceives before the mind notices.

Some Common Definitions

Gut feeling is a physical response to Mystic Perception. Mystic Perception is unconscious samyama, since the Operator is always at work whether we are aware of its working or not. Samyama is the realization process -
the casting of your consciousness net forth to unerringly catch the fish you want,

"Any kind of intuitive thinking at its various stages of expression is strongly related to Samyama-like phenomena as well."  Following Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, "a yogin who is victorious in samyama vanquishes all 'cognitive obscurations' (Sanskrit: klesha)." The Sutras describe various 'powers' or 'perfections' (Sanskrit: siddhi) a yogin may attain through the conduit of Samyama. These three together [dharana, dhyana and samadhi] constitute integration or samyama. "From mastery of samyama comes the light of awareness and insight. Samyama may be applied in various spheres to derive its usefulness."


Aristotle believed that everything had a telos–its aim, purpose, or maximum potential.  Achieving this purpose led to arete or excellence. The telos of man was eudaimonia which is happiness or flourishing–a life lived to its utmost. The path to eudaimonia is paved with decisions made with practical wisdom. The better your  decisions, the more you will progress, the more of your potential you will use, and the more your life will flourish. In short, practical wisdom is the path to true happiness and satisfaction. Deliberative skills. According to Aristotle, ”the person skilled in deliberating would in general also be practically wise.” The heart of practical wisdom is deliberation. Practical wisdom requires that we deliberate with ourselves the best course of action to take in a given situation. It’s a skill that we become more adept at through experience. The exercise of practical wisdom comes from an individual’s freedom to deliberate the best course of action to take in a set of particular circumstances. A lot of young men grow up with parents these days that schedule out their lives and make all their decisions for them. Then when they get out on their own and have to choose their own path, they feel paralyzed, so afraid they’ll make the wrong decision. They want someone to tell them what to do, because they haven’t gotten any experience  cultivating their own practical wisdom.
