    Well said Becky! As Sun Tzu also said ‘Know your enemy, know yourself: 100 battles, 100 victories’. Instinctive gut feelings are indeed a very important dimension of knowing oneself, and are overlooked and dismissed at peril. Gut feelings remind us that wisdom ultimately lies within, and that the supreme knowledge is in knowing oneself – warts and all. When instinctively in tune with our gut feelings, and in knowing ourselves firsthand, we can bypass all compulsive illusionary and egotistical attachments, thus minimizing distractive confusions and optimizing our chances of success in the midst of seemingly confusing and chaotic situations. Keep up your great work Becky!
