It does seem intelligence lacks on this planet. Can we really be surprised? Our personalities manifest and are expressions on the physical plane. The tangible plane where all can be perceived and translated. Our society is one that promotes the physical on a whole host of levels.
Intelligence is intangible and thus many lose interest as we are subtly taught that it is not as important as what we can touch, see, hear, smell and taste.
I believe we all potentially have a higher intelligence, one that is above the lower, physical, animal based intelligence that the majority of the world has.
I think our ego is the point of synthesis in our personality that links lower based physical intelligence (or knowledge) to our higher intelligence/consciousness or if you will, soul.
Bullshit? Perhaps. Observe people and really look. See the ones that enforce their personalities and ideals on others, the ones with unbalanced egos? They may have knowledge, but that is no proof of intelligence.
Intelligence is evolutionary and to an extent cannot be rushed. Encouraged it should definitely be, but as with evolution the strongest survive. The ones who try force intelligence would be the ones I would be wary of. I think ego is quite a decent measure of true intelligence.
Eventually intelligence and authentic, soulful expressions will be the norm in the world, through well-balanced egos and personalities.
but for now, we should be concerned with our own egos and what they are preventing us from learning.
Life for me at times is summer camp at 5AM and I am ten years old.
I tiptoe around sleeping bodies that talk in their sleep.
I remain quiet.
The only other ones awake are the naughty kids.
The ones that dare seek adventure in the dark.
These are the ones I stir with
with whispers and muffled laughter.
The sun is about to rise and we all should want to see it.
The appeal of sleep and dreams are too strong for most of the kids.
So there I sit,
on top of a mountain with kids who dare to play before the light of day,
Just to watch the sunrise.
In my sanctuary I have an unfinished puzzle and dust on my floor.
I sweep up a little every day
but end up never throwing it all away.
Others see dust
I see gold.
I’m slowly working on the puzzle piece by piece by peace.
It’s a work in progress,
but I intend to eventually have a completed puzzle
tinted entirely in gold.
Projections of projections.
Two mirrors in parallel, reflecting each other to infinity.
That is all anything is.
Ripples and echoes of great concepts and archetypes.
Fundamental cosmic truths that become more complex with each ripple giving rise to chaos, which has become this physical manifestation.
The ripples are still there to observe and to learn from.
At the heart of every physical shell and husk resides a great concept. It is inescapable.
It is the cause, we and our existence, are the effect.
It is the reason we are.
So we want peace?
For peace to be propagated, our interactions with each being must be peaceful.
For those interactions to be peaceful, we – the individual, must be peaceful and to be peaceful we have to be at peace with ourselves on an individual level.
The problem is too many of us have unresolved internal conflict because we have been conditioned to think that what is NOT tangible, is not as important as that which can be physically sensed.
If millions of dissonant individuals are interacting can we really expect harmony? Peace is only as strong as its weakest link, and we each are a link.
Despite what you have been “taught” YOU, your every thought and action is the most important thing in physical existence.
