Perhaps emphasizing its importance, Mary Baker Eddy lists intuition first in a series of elements necessary for a perception of real being. “Spiritual sense, contradicting the material senses, involves intuition, hope, faith, understanding, fruition, reality,” 1 she writes. Intuition—as the ability to sense good—is a spiritual faculty. To progress, to heal and bless others, we need to cultivate, develop, use it.

Video – Steven Spielberg gives the 2016 commencement address at Harvard.

The following is an excerpt from the video of Steven Spielberg.

 

Life is one long string of character defining moments.  

Spielberg initially repressed his own point of view for awhile until he began paying more attention by listening to his intuition and finding his voice. 

Listen to that voice that tells you what you could do.

The Color Purple opened his eyes because he learned that everything wants to be loved.  

Don’t turn away from what is painful.  Examine it.  Challenge it.

He further mentions that there is no greater voice or whisper for a hero to  follow than their intuition.  He also discusses the importance of love, support, and courage.

Interesting that he states a hero needs a villain as there is plenty of opportunity since the the world is full of monsters.

There is racism, homophobia, ethic hatred, class hatred.  There is political hatred and there is religious hatred.

As a kid Spielberg was bullied for being Jewish and questions the us v them mentality by asking how do all of us find the “we”.

Discrimination is all one big hate.  The only answer to hate is more humanity.  Repair and replace fear with curiosity and we will find the “we” by connecting with each other.

We are all members of the same tribe so find empathy for every soul.  But act upon it, vote, and peaceably protest.  Speak up for those who can’t or those who are shouting and can’t be heard.

Start by looking each other in the eye for the that human connection.
