Not a Muse … D
After many years of heeding a voice, a feeling really, only I could sense, I ultimately realized the muse, that goddess who encouraged me to swim upstream against the torrent of tradition and dogma, was in truth my intuition—not a construct of Greek mythology.
The Muses are, after all, vindictive deities. As the myths about them reveal, they avenge themselves without mercy on those who weary of their charms.
Intuition is a faculty that has an assortment of definitions. Although varied interpretations generally agree intuition transcends the rational process, I have proven to my own self that intuition is the divine communicating directly to me—and to you. Still, this definition in all its clarity remains abstract until you feel the song of intuition for your own self. After that, there is no need to define it further because you have struck bedrock in the ways and means department of epistemology.»
