Trust your experience

Trust your experience:

'I can trust my experience.

...When an activity  feels  as though it is valuable or worth doing, it  is  worth doing.  Put another way, I have learned that my total organismic sensing of a situation is more trustworthy than my intellect.

All my professional life I have been going in directions that others thought were foolish and about which I have had many doubts myself.  But I have never regretted moving in directions which "felt right", even though I have often felt lonely or foolish at the time.

I have found that when I have trusted some inner non-intellectual sensing, I have discovered wisdom in the move.  In fact I have found that when I have followed one of these unconventional paths because it felt right or true, then in five or ten years many of my colleagues have joined me, and I no longer need to feel alone in it.'

(Carl Rogers (1961), On Becoming a Person, p.22)
