It is surprising to believe that intellect is synonymous to intelligence,is it?
For me they are opposites , opposites that can never become one.
Intellect is for phonies ,for those hide from themselves in order for their ego to sustain.
Why is it that you believe that intelligence is something to be “accomplished”?
Why do we categorize people as dumb , stupid or intelligent?
Somewhere you can see where we have gone wrong. Do you see the plants and animals as stupid? Do you see the sky above as stupid or the sea across as stupid?
Every life has a certain intelligence inborn , if you have the eyes to see it , you will be amazed. That’s the true meaning of religion , to have the eyes to look at the intelligence of the smallest of the smallest life forms like a child , enthusiastically , lovingly , with a certain amazement and not mugging up books and teachers like parrots.
