Have you taken a real look at what it really means to be intelligent?
Have you really looked at intelligence relative to what your current belief systems are?
Let’s take a look at the basic beliefs of what most consider intelligence to be.
Below is collectively a good amount of aspects that define what most people view as intelligence.
- How many facts someone has remembered
- The kinds of grades someone gets in school
- The position someone holds at their job
- The kind of career someone has
- What someone’s IQ scores are
- How they think intellectually
- Their ability to problem solve.
A lot of these have been correlated in my lifetime as a true indicator of what intelligence is in its true nature.
These are relative aspects that that exist within the one absolute intelligence.
These aspects of intelligence are more about how you are experiencing this world of form.
They are more about experience rather than the intelligence that exists in everyone regardless of how smart you think someone is.
Once this intelligence is found at the core heart of every living human being, peace can be found no matter who think you are, what background you come from, what race or ethnicity.
Collective conditioning is what lead to you believe that you need to have a goodly amount of the relative intelligence just mentioned in order to be peaceful.
A good portion of the human race does have survival instincts so the basic intelligence that all humans have is usually taken care of, simply by having a human mind. It’s the survival instincts of having a human mind.
How would you feel in a world where you had everything you think you wanted?
It had occurred to me while watching a TV series the other day. One girl thought she wanted something, and when she was just about to get it, her mind went into the state of pleasure, but eventually she realized the opposite of what she believed was true.
So when she found out, the opposite pain occurred and when she got the opposite, then pleasure came again.
When she originally entered into the state of pleasure as a result of what she thought she wanted, was it false pleasure?”
No, it was pleasure, but it is interesting how simply by our thoughts we can trick ourselves into thinking that when the things which brings pleasure are going our way, that those things equal what we truly want.
Even when she found out she wanted the opposite and still had pleasure, it was no different than prior because that pleasure was going to pass eventually regardless.
It was her mind that wanted certain things to happen or not happen, not what she really wanted (what every human being wants) which is peace as a result of finding that one pure intelligence realization.
This intelligence does not rely on what you own or don’t own, what you acquire from success.
It’s about finding the once constant that brings peace into your life, no matter what is happening in life, based on the way your mind is perceiving it.
This is precisely why the purest and uncontaminated intelligence is that of a newborn baby.
A newborn has no mind yet, at least not until that second “mommy,” or “daddy” starts creating its mind with its very first thought.
A newborn baby has yet to be able to label reality with any analyzing or interpreting because it has yet to have a mind.
A baby doesn’t think, “where am I?” because the concept of place or location has not yet occurred to its no-mind.
A baby doesn’t think who or what am I? Because the concept of a who or what has not yet occurred to its no-mind.
A baby doesn’t think how or why is this happening?
Because the concept of how or why has not yet occurred to its no-mind.
There is not a single idea, image, or concept in that of a new born, and thus, because of this, it’s 100% that a new born baby is born into Nirvana, (the absolute state of ecstasy) as a result of not having a mind and, thus, only knowing the absolute.
Consider the collective pain body or the collective identification with the internal pain as a result of its own conditioning.
Conditioning is the thoughts that enter into the state of the of mind and form its foundation; these thoughts are what fuel the emotions in said human being.
If a baby cannot think, then it has not developed the pain body, then it will not have any worries, then it is of the utmost intelligence.
A baby needs food, water, shelter and care, but it does not know this, thus, it does not worry.
What true intelligence requires is the ability for elders to learn from that of a newborn baby—which will require a WHOLE LOT of unlearning.
If you take a look at the common way a baby goes through the stages of life as it gets older, BAM!, parenting happens, grand parenting happens, aunts, uncles, music, movies, TV shows, the media, all start to condition its mind.
This is where the self-image is born, the separate “me” is born, and it is here where the pain body latches on.
And the deeper the conditioning, the further away you are from intelligence, and the further away from peace.
This does in no way, shape, or form mean that if you have been deeply conditioned, you cannot unlearn what has caused you pain.
No matter how deep the conditioning is buried in you, there is a way out.
The irony of the conditioning is that it doesn’t want you to think on your own. It wants you to develop the worlds thoughts, in order to be accepted by society.
So, a newborn goes from its upmost intelligence through the system of conditioning almost as if it’s mind gets put onto an assembly line, and the further it goes into the assembly line of conditioning the more unintelligent and unpeaceful it becomes.
Creativity is the very purest state of intelligence, and a newborn without a mind is a direct reflection of pure absolute creativity itself.
Take for example a fruit or a vegetable.
The fruit or vegetable when it ripens from the earth, and is in its most natural state it is the perfect time to eat, not when it is sprayed with pesticides, processed, shipped, and delivered to the grocery stores.
That fruit was at its most intelligent when it came directly from nature, not when man had to put our dirty little hands on it.
Let’s take a look at everything in this world that is not based on absolute reality, and look at things we should question—manmade or created or the reality, which is regardless of what man has done.
Almost everyone I have met in my life has had some money problems or challenges in their life, which has caused internal pain. Naturally, this has also happened to me as well.
Letting money create internal pain inside is an example of a pain body.
Yes, money is necessary for food, water and shelter for the most part and yet, this can be a simple awareness, or it can be worry, which is awareness but with pain attached.
“Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.” – Eckhart Tolle
Materials are a very close relative to money.
Materials are often associated with someone’s worth as a person or the basis of their intelligence.
All materials and their value are man-made, and anything man made is not based on absolute truth, which is the truth prior to all thought, without a second.
Once materials are looked at as things that do not give you your worth as a person and that you don’t NEED them to make you peaceful, then you can enjoy the materials that you do have on a more enriched basis.
3. Career Title
Just as materials should be enjoyed without them giving you your worth as a person, so too should how high or low you are in the hierarchy of your career/job.
Consider how many people in this world (who work a Monday-Friday job) hate Mondays with a passion and love Fridays with a passion.
This also goes for anyone regardless of their work schedule.
Consider that deeply for a second. Why should a Friday be any more fun and alive than a Monday or a Tuesday?
In the neutral reality of the universe, a minute on a Monday is absolutely no different than a minute on a Saturday.
It is only the man-made mind that develops the collective pain body that thinks “I should hate Mondays and love Fridays”
A newborn baby does not know the days of the week, and yet it’s in its most peaceful state, regardless.
When you find peace and pure intelligence, then the days of the week do not matter.
4. Education Systems
The education systems are based on memory.
You will get the grades that you deserve based on how much information you can keep in your system for the test.
The education system is building and strengthening one thing and that is memory. Pile up information, focus hard to remember it, and then drop it on the test.
And after the test is finished, you don’t need that information anymore except now it’s time to start compiling the next information. Eventually, with enough info from one test to another, your mind will become a mechanical animal.
Many believe that the education systems should teach us about life, and I agree to an extent, because the education systems should ultimately be the foundation of inner peace.
At the end of the of life I will want to say I lived a very peaceful, joyful and blissful life which made ripple effects from one corner of the universe to the next.
“The most important thing is to find out what is the most important thing.” – Shunryu Suzuki
Words are sounds of the mouth that we use to communicate with.
They make life more fun, more enjoyable, however, they are limited simply because they are also manmade.
Communication between two individuals cannot set you towards peaceful freedom. Words can make you happier and feel better but they cannot give you absolute truth.
They can only point you into the direction of the absolute truth of peace and bliss.
Just as limited as this article will be, it is only going to be in your direct realization to find the absolute intelligence which will reflect the peace that every human wants.
Thoughts are manmade and, in fact, your thoughts have been given to you by the world.
No newborn baby knows what a thought is; even when the mind begins to develop, they still don’t know what a thought is.
You cannot “think” yourself out of your mind and into the infinite intelligence.
Albert Einstein says,
“Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.”
And Eckhart Tolle says
“The problems of the mind cannot be understood on the level of the mind.”
This means that in order to rise above the false beliefs, thoughts, that you think are true and are causing you pain, cannot be fixed by the current mechanics of your mind.
The one infinite intelligence cannot, nor will it ever be able to, be comprehended by the mind. Intelligence only happens when the mind has been transcended, when we have found the thoughtless, timeless awareness between thoughts.
This thoughtless awareness makes you more newborn-baby-like intelligent.
A very big cause of the suffering and lack of intelligence is a mind focused on past and future.
The mind can’t comprehend presence in its totality.
The reason is that to think means to try, and in absolute presence there is no trying, there is nothing to do.
The mind wants to do, and continue doing, because it cannot see outside of the mind, so it only knows thought.
Outside of thought is neutral awareness that is felt (and absorbed through the cells of the body) as this present moment.
Ever wonder why being on the Internet or watching TV is so draining?
It’s because your mind is on fast-forward in the media. Don’t just unplug from technology to enjoy life right now, unplug from your mind to be as this thoughtless, timeless space.
Time is not intelligent because it is only a tool; the true intelligence comes from that which allows time to be used as a tool.
A baby does not know what time it is when it comes out of the womb, because it does not know what time is.
When it comes out of the womb, the only thing that it knows is no-thing.
The only thing a baby knows is what is, because it is ONLY aware of the present moment, thus, it is in Nirvana.
Stop taking your thoughts, life situations, and what you think is intelligent so seriously.
Learn from a newborn child and start to unlearn everything you think about that is causing you insanity.
