DEFINITION OF THE INTUITION

1.      The intuition (buddhi) is not a welling forth of love to people and, therefore, an understanding of them

2.      The intuition (buddhi) has no relation to psychism, either higher or lower

3.      The intuition (buddhi) is not only the seeing of symbols

4.      The intuition (buddhi) is not intelligent psychology, and a loving desire to help

5.      Intuition (buddhi) is the synthetic understanding which is the prerogative of the soul

Intuition (buddhi) of this kind only becomes possible when the soul, on its own level, is reaching in two directions: towards the Monad, and towards the integrated and, perhaps (even if only temporarily) coordinated and at-oned personality

6.      Intuition (buddhi) is the first indication of a deeply subjective unification, which will find its consummation at the third initiation

7.      Intuition (buddhi) is a comprehensive grip of the principle of universality, and when it is functioning there is, momentarily at least, a complete loss of the sense of separateness

At its highest point, the intuition (buddhi) is known as Universal Love with no relation to sentiment or affectional reaction, but is identification with all beings

Then is true compassion known; then does criticism become impossible; then, only, is the divine germ seen as latent in all forms

8.      Intuition (buddhi) is light itself, and when it is functioning, the world is seen as light, and the light bodies of all forms become gradually apparent

This brings with it the ability to contact the light centre in all forms. Thus essential relationship is established, the sense of superiority and separateness recedes

9.      Intuition (buddhi) brings with its appearance three qualities:

     Illumination

     Understanding

      Love
