2 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana August How to distinguish intuition from impu By CHARLIE MARTIN Catholic News Service INTUITION Everybody's been in my faceFfellin" me I gotta make a change JAil I ever hear day and night is,/"You bet- ter hurry up and get a life."/I need some direc- tiord'Cause the clock is tickin' away. Then a friend of a friend of mine/Says I've really been on his mind/And wants to go out/And check out what the feelin's about./Says we have a deep connec- tion,/Well, it sure is news to meJAnd all I can say is, (CHORUS) Intuition tells me/How to live my day/Intuition tells me/When to walk away/Could have turned left/Could have turned right/But I ended up here/Bang in the middle of real life. Then another one always says/She'd do anything to get ahead/She doesn't care if she has to/Scratch and claw to get in the door/She wants her 15 minutes of fame/And 20 would be nice./But I guess it's her life. 'Cause intuition tells me/That I'm doin' fine/Intu- ition tells me/When to draw the line/Could have turned left/Could have turned right/But I ended up here/Bang in the middle of real life./Should have turned left/But I turned right/And I ended up here/And I feel all right. Intuition is difficult to define. It is a way O f You make it hard for me/Can't find the real you/You really think that I can't see/What it is that/You're trying to do (CHORUS) Written by Imbruglia/Booker Sung by Natalie Imbruglia Copyright (c) 1998 by BMG Entertainment Natalie ImbrugHa burst onto this year's music scene with "Tom." The cassingle spent eight weeks at the top of the charts, the longest run on top so far in '98. "Torn" is off Imbruglia's CD "Left of Middle." While listening to the disc I was drawn to the cut "Intuition." Consider the song's opening lyrics: "Everybody's been in my face tellin' me I gotta make a change; all I ever hear day and night is, 'You better hurry up and get a life."" I bet lots of teens would say that they have heard something similar! The person in the song also says her life is guided by "intuition." She says it "tells me how to live my day" and "when to walk away." She knows that she "could have turned left, could have turned right, but I ended up here, bang in the middle of real life." The song addresses a common teen dilemma: what you want to do and what others think you should do. The person in the song uses intuition to resolve her problem. However, the song's tone does- n't convey the sense that everything is going well. Consequently, I wonder if the woman really is skilled at listening to her intuition. ing that seems to combine thoughts and yet differs from both. When attempting to make a decision intuition consider these questions: 1. How long have you felt this wa} ition may arrive spontaneously, it is helpful before acting in order to determine if your sense remains the same or is just an" moment. 2. Have you talked to someone else decision? This is especially helpful when ..... individual knows you well. Such discussion can assist you in seeing and weighing possible cease- quences. No one else can give you your as in most other areas of life, discern whether, indeed, it is your intuition speaking. 3. What are your goals? Real one's long-range objectives. Seeking sure over long-term well-being does not reflect power of intuition. Rather, intuition leads your0! best in yourself.

"Ever After" (Tjentieth Century Fox) - Medieval romance from the Cinderella. story of a young Frenchwoman (Drew Barry- more) whose wicked stepmother (Anjelica Huston) has raised her as little more than a servant until her wit, beauty and intelligence lead in the action, with often amusing and, at times, heart- warming results.

(Touchstone) Comic misfire parodies numer- ous movies, particularly "The Godfather," in chronicling how the younger son (Jay Mohr) of a klutzy Sicilian mobster (Lloyd Bridges) eventually took his father's place as underworld boss. Director Jim Abrahams delivers many goofy sight gags, but the humor often falls fiat when it too closely follows the plot of "The Godfather."

Paulist Press, 997 Macarthur Blvd., Mahwah, NJ 07430, 1998. Paper- back, 154 pages, $9.95. BOOK REVIEW By.MICHAEL H. EPPLER Director, Office of Youth and Young Adult Formation This is an excellent little spir- itual faith primer for young adults. It addresses issues of sexuality, codependency, addic- tions, and the contemporary modern life of college-aged and married young adults. The theology is excellent and will stand the test of time. Unfortunately, the book is full of jargon and contemporary references to media and society. While the book is excellent for young adults today, l am afraid that it will have little appeal in five years. There are a few irri- tating grammatical errors (run- on sentences, sentence frag- ments, and misspelled words); however, I don't think that these will deter the young adult from reading further. Honest, forthright, and com- pelling, this is a quick and exciting real. I recommend this book to any parent of a college- aged young adult who is look- ing for a "backpack-stuffer" for a young person about to leave for college or about to get mar- ried. About the author.
