About: According to Sadguru, Intuition is not a dimension of Perception but a dimension of Computing, which means your computing (information stored) is skipping the Logical steps and arriving at the answer that is a more sensible way to conduct your life. If you want to develop Intuition, practice Meditation, or try simply sitting here (in the present moment) being fully aware and conscious.
