Week of July 17  - July 23, 2017

“Intuition or direct knowledge does not depend on any data from the senses. That is why the intuitive faculty is often called the sixth sense. Everyone has this sixth sense, but most people do not develop it. However, almost everyone has had some intuitional experience, perhaps a feeling that a particular thing is going to happen, when there is no sensory evidence to indicate it."

             -Paramahansa Yogananda
