So why has intuition been relegated to the second tier? Because It's easier for humans to identify with a physical object (like a possession), which is the currency of the thinking mind. Identifying with objects feeds the belief that all things are separate - I am separate from you and everything else that can be objectified. My feelings of separate-ness create the belief that I need to gain some measure of control over others in order to protect myself from them. If I were to recognize intuition as a valid method of perception, it would upset my ordered, albeit mistaken, world view and therefore be seen as a personal threat.
Intuition exposes the basic fallacy of the object-as-primary view. Intuition knows that everything is connected in a way that cannot be perceived by the senses, as Saint- Exupery expresses so well in The Little Prince when he says,
"It is only in the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye."
A person's true identity is not the physical body or the thinking brain (despite what Descartes believed: "I think, therefore I am"). Rather, identity is rooted in the , through which access is gained to a limitless universe of perception. This is the source of intuition. And when the "I" of one's core being is actualized, the way is cleared for authentic and incorruptible freedom - Freedom with a capital "F".
This is anarchy in the purest sense. It is Freedom grounded in compassion for self and others - not tearing anything down, not trading one form of myopic politics for another, but simply having a level of self-awareness which gives an individual the ability to opt-out of playing the game as defined by political-social convention. It removes conflict instead of creating it. It knows there is nothing to fear when identity is grounded in the transcendent core of one's being. This is what the principalities and powers fear most. They know that just one individual empowered by their inner authority is big trouble (e.g. Socrates, Jesus, St. Francis, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, and Gandhi).
The Razor's Edge
OK, so Intuitive Anarchy is a way of accessing authentic Freedom. But how do we get there? How does one integrate with, and internalize original authority? Consider this verse from the Katha-Upanishad:
"The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over, thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard".
