Intuition and the Jedi

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

The understanding and use of the intuitive "sense" is not encouraged by modern institutions- but in Jedi circles it is given pride of place!  The Jedi view the subtle senses as conveying messages that can't be gained any other way, and which prove useful for one's continued well-being and the well-being of others.  Indeed, intuition is seen as playing a role that the thinking mind is incapable of fulfilling, for the thinking self exists in a kind of vacuum that may be totally removed from what is actually going on in the world around us.  It is only the senses (both subtle and gross) that allow us to be in touch with the world around us and allows us to respond to life in the most appropriate and constructive way.
