"Gut" thinking

I just read a really interesting article.. on making decisions based on instinct. Article is here. I do this sort of thing all the time. In musical performances it is required. I think that maybe the risk taking is the part that so many people can't handle. We have created such a critical judging environment in our culture that failure or mistakes are not an option. This stifles innovation, creativity, and removes the mysticism from our daily lives.

In the article the author offers this quote..
"neuroscience shows that there may indeed be such a thing as visceral wisdom."

I don't need neuroscience to tell me that, but it is interesting to have some ability to validate our "make" in science.

For me personally, I believe that the Holy Spirit is a part of every decision and action that I take. I am not always right... but I am right more often than not...

Trusting my gut, is a part of who I am. It isn't a substitute for disciplined, well managed actions and decisions.. but it IS a part of those processes. The bigger question is who gets credit for the visceral wisdom in our gut... I know my answer on that one too.

Proverbs 3:5-12 (The Message)
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction. It's the child he loves that God corrects; a father's delight is behind all this.
