Did I Just See What I Think I Saw?

Examining Logic Vs. Intuition
So you think you saw Bigfoot, or a UFO, or a ghost? What are you supposed to do now? Those things aren’t supposed to exist, and yet something deep inside is saying, “Yes, I saw it and I know I didn’t dream it.” But still, you have to find a way to process it. Because in the human mind, everything must make sense and we must be able to relate it to something familiar. That’s how the human brain works. It struggles for a logical explanation.
But some things in this world simply aren’t logical, and some things will always be a mystery.
And I’m going to say something about this here that may not set so well with some, but needs to be said nonetheless.
Great intelligence can be a curse. As far as we know, humans are the only animals intelligent enough to question their own instincts. We’re the only animals cursed with this supposed “gift” of reason that will slow us down (by us thinking too hard) just long enough for us to be knocked in the head by reality! Logic can confuse us because it assumes it knows everything when there’s no way it possibly can.
So is it maybe easier to be any other animal? They seem to have such simple minds, and they don’t seem to doubt their own instincts at all.
But there’s a reason for that from which humans can learn a valuable lesson. We have instincts or intuition for a reason. It may have been designed to help us get through life, but we “intelligent” humans seem to turn it into something far more complicated. We over think, we doubt, and we question until we don’t trust ourselves to know. That’s the curse of logic.
Logic just creeps in. And you’ll use that logic essentially as a tool to torture yourself over what your instinct already knows. You saw what you saw. Logic really had nothing to do with it. So maybe logic isn’t as sound as we’d like to think.
But ironically it’s your distinctly human logical side that will argue with instinct and tell you that logic should be the winner here. Logic should decide what you saw, and logic tells you that Bigfoot shouldn’t exist. There’s no concrete proof. Therefore Bigfoot doesn’t exist. Period. End of story. So you must have imagined the whole thing. Right?
Intuition may seem intangible, but it’s very real. Humans, just like all other animals, were designed with strong instincts as a survival mechanism. We were meant to be able to perceive danger and make the decision to run or fight. Our instincts were gifted to us with a very profound purpose.
If you watch other animals, they seem to use their instincts effectively and they don’t seem to question them. They rarely appear to doubt or over think. That’s how they survive. And on those rare occasions when they do seem to question those instincts for even a split second, they often die. So instincts are very important to every living creature. They determine life and death. And what’s more important than that? So by that “reasoning,” should we ignore them now?
We need to be more like the animals we truly are. We need to learn to trust our instincts and follow them, even though that persistent logic we cling to will be screaming, “No!” Brushing logic aside, you saw what you saw. You weren’t dreaming.
Your instincts already know what you saw, while logic will forever be arguing the point. And none of us needs to spend the rest of our lives arguing. So have peace inside your mind, and surrender to what you know. **********
