Through this meditative work I beleive that I have come to see profound insights in regards to my being, and the natrual world.
Am I being fooled by the intellect? Does pure concionuess have the ability to think and come to knowing without intellect?
Is there a way to distinguish varifiably between a truly concious insight and intellectual one? Can pure conciouness reason with the use of words?

Study and meditate on these quotes!
Those who want to enter into the wisdom of the fire must overcome the process of reasoning and cultivate the ardent faculties of the mind.
We must only extract the golden fruit from reasoning.
The golden fruit of reasoning is comprehension.
Comprehension and imagination must replace reasoning.
Imagination and comprehension are the foundation of the superior faculties of the understanding.
In order to enter the knowledge of the superior worlds, it is necessary to acquire the superior faculties of the mind.

God Most High has said, “In that are signs for those who read the signs” (15:75). “By those who read the signs” means “for those who can see the inward state of things” or “those who have insight.”

Abu abd al-Rahman al-Sulami reported… from Abu Said alKhudri that the Messenger of God said, “Fear the spiritual insight of the believer, for he sees by the light of God.”

Firasah , the precise insight of people, comes suddenly upon the heart and negates whatever might contradict it. It has a kind of jurisdiction over the heart. The term is derived from “prey ( farisa ) of a lion.” The ego cannot oppose the spiritual insight of that which is usually regarded as correct and possible. It exists to the same degree as one’s strength of faith: whoever has stronger faith has sharper insight.”

I heard Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami say that his grandfather, Abu Amr bin Nujayd, said that Shah al-Kirmani had keen spiritual insight. He did not err. He would say, “Whoever casts down his eyes before forbidden things, restrains his ego from lusts (attraction to pleasure), fills his inner being with continuous attentiveness and his outer being with adherence to the Sunnah, and accustoms himself to eating what is lawful, will make no mistakes with his insight.” Abu Said al-Kharraz said, “One who sees with the light of spiritual insight, sees with the light of the Truth. The very substance of his knowledge comes from God, unmixed with either negligence or forgetfulness. Indeed, it is a judgment of Truth flowing from the tongue of a servant.” Abu Said’s expression “looking with the light of the Truth” means seeing by a light with which the Truth has favored him. Al-Wasiti said, “Spiritual insight means the rays of light that gleam in hearts and the solid establishment of a spiritual knowledge that conveys secrets of the invisible realm from one hidden place to another. Thus the possessor of insight witnesses things in the way that the Truth brings him to witness them, and he speaks what is in people’s minds.”

It is said that the spiritual insight of students is a thought that demands verification, but the insight of the gnostics is a verification that demands a reality. Ahmad bin Asim al-Antaki said, “When you sit with the people of truthfulness, sit with them in truthfulness, for they are the spies of the hearts. They will enter and leave your heart without your feeling it.” I heard Muhammad ibn al-Husayn say… that Abu Jafar al-Haddad said, “Spiritual insight appears as a spontaneous intuition that nothing can challenge. If contradictions arise, it is a simple thought, an event of the ego.”

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
