You have to regard yourself as a cloud, in the flesh. Because clouds never makes mistakes. Did you ever see a cloud that was misshapen? Did you ever see a badly designed wave? Heh, no. They always do the right thing! If you treat yourself for a while as a cloud, a wave, and realise that you can’t make a mistake, whatever you do – because even if you do something that seems to be totally disastrous, it all come out in the wash somehow or other. Then through this capacity you will develop a kind of confidence, and through confidence you will be able to trust your own intuition.
