Spend a lot of time working logically. Spend a lot of time coming to determinations logically. Spend a lot of my waking life playing logical games and making what feel like logical moves to logical places.
But then there is the rest of life. The parts that will come and that will manifest without logical intervention.
There is the emotional and affectual side.
There is the gut and intuitive level and deeper.
Since i (= this jumble of patterns) began practicing meditation it became more apparent that logic was not the only way to come to knowledge.
When I was in college as a first year, a professor challenged us with the question: how else to come to a conclusion but with reason?
And although I had no way to articulate what I knew to be true, I was very unwavering in my presentation that there were other ways to Know and Decide.
Ten years latter I finally have some words on the matter.
