Sometimes the soul expresses itself and we have an irrational experience of intuitive knowing. When this happens, there’s no debate, no doubt, no weighing of pros and cons. It’s pure, simple and unassailable. It could be one word, three words or a rush of love during which we love the beloved more than ourselves.
Sincerity’s hallmark characteristic is that it can only express itself in the simplest possible terms. Thus, the most potent prayer I can pray is a single syllable. “More words count less,” said Lao Tzu.
A spontaneous act is unexpected, unpredicted, unrehearsed, ungoverned, simple, direct, immediate, natural and now. The more we think, remember and plan, the less spontaneous we are. Jesus was making a point about spontaneity when he said we were to become again as little children.
