While measuring my current perspective against the chaotic experience of my life - I am arriving upon realizations of powers and understanding of my greater purpose in this material existence; though similarly connecting to what is my own Karmic Baggage

Such chaos was torment against my true self; though in hindsight drew me back to this path. Similar to those negative externalities experienced by many of those who find themselves on the razor thin path, I find myself over exerting rationality to "fit in" to this existence.

My intuition has always led me to act upon what I believe is the only true cause and purpose; to enlighten brothers and sisters in darkness, and to fight against the manifestation of egos (my own, and otherwise).. Certainly, this intuition was exercised without any intervention of the rational mind in younger days; however now it is my rational mind taking over my ability to exercise my intuitive nature. I seek the knowledge for my rational mind, to make of sense of this existence, these great teachings. When studying lectures, everything makes perfect sense, and strikes a chord which I truely feel is already tuned, though rusty in me.

As I truely feel to have fallen; how do I approach the Great Work with my intuitive mind again? How do I silence the intellect's desire to understand facets of the teachings, which wants to believe are necessary in this life's journey? Is my intellect merely bringing forth the cause of my fall, while tethering my intuitive nature until a time whence earned to again exercise?

How do I silence the intellect
You silence the intellect by activating the superior emotional center when listening to classical music VERY LOUD!

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

Thank you.

There is certainly an immense connection with musical stimulus. (Though I would suggest that some Eras/Composers may actually interfere with that connection.)

I'm not certain what link Lion of Judah posted, but this thread raises some other responses worthy of consideration.
74. We must only extract the golden fruit from reasoning.
75. The golden fruit of reasoning is comprehension.
76. Comprehension and imagination must replace reasoning.
77. Imagination and comprehension are the foundation of the superior faculties of the mind.
78. In order to enter into the knowledge of the superior worlds, it is necessary to acquire the superior faculties of the mind.
-Igneous Rose
Reasoning is subjective mind. Comprehension is intuitive / superior or objective reasoning, synthesized as dianoetic and noetic thought.

We do not reject a strong intellectual spiritual culture, but intellectualism without guidance of the spirit.
It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] literal - they are the foundation of the Book - and others allegorical. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is allegorical, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah. But those firm in knowledge (gnosis, marifah) say, "We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord." And no one will be reminded except those who possess intellect. Al-Imran 7
Possessors of intellect in Arabic is ulu'l-albab, literally signifying "possessors of kernels," or those who understand the inner dimension of things, like a nut within its shell.

However, the intellectual kabbalists, the black magicians, only possess empty shells, Klipoth, diabolical egos, the illusion or intellectual appreciation of externals.

Therefore, it's time to get a nut-cracking! :)
