When talking with people in person I'm often asked if I'm "psychic" or if I 
have "ESP" or how I seem to "know" things. Most of the time this makes me want 
to laugh! :-) And sometimes I do :-)

While I am a very intuitive person, and while I have had a very few times in my 
53 years when I really did seem to know things without any "logical" way to 
know, there is really nothing mystical or psychic or extra-sensory about it! 
It's simply that I'm 100% present and paying attention during the conversation, 
and I am not only hearing their words, but also the tone of their voice, I'm 
seeing their facial expression, how they are standing or holding themselves. . 
.  I'm seeing/hearing/listening 100%. It's simply zen, as in the old zen 
saying; "Be here now!" Yet they think I'm doing something "mystical" and 
sometimes no amount of explaining otherwise will convince them. 

"People who study zen should seek real, true perception and understanding for 
now. If you attain this you needn't seek wonders, for wonders come of 
themselves." Linji

Or to borrow from an old song from the 1960's- "There's nothing like the real 
thing, baby!" ;-)
