a “difficult case,”
the difficulty is experienced
by the person
with the judgment

If they had greater skills,
we wouldn’t be difficult anymore.

Intuition as Guide

It can be useful
to think of intuition
as a guide.

A guide does not claim
to have the right

A guide merely claims
to know something

We may choose
to ignore the guide.

We may also choose

“What is it
that makes it difficult
for you
to forgive?”

when you seek to practice

that guide people
the process.

until their goal changes—
is that we are perceived
as unsupportive
to them,
and thus perceived
to not be

Think of the “self”
as possibilities.

What will arise in the moment
as “self”
may be contingent upon
numerous variables
not the least of which
is our judgment
of what is right
