Recognize the nature of intelligence

Many people ask, what is intelligence?  Answers sought outside self differ from those offered at soul level.  Where do you look?

In the global marketplace, the economics of supply and demand suggest intelligence is quantifiable.  Participating soceties create imagined needs.  In this way, a person is viewed as intelligent according to practical utility of or marketability of skills or inventions. 

In realms where beliefs reign, intelligence is grounded in principles and value judgements.  Assumptions emerge like those who are more intelligent necessarily have more or less material wealth, health or specific conditions that are not equally accessible, yet widely desirable. 

From another vantage point, intelligence is something earned through experience in this and other lifetimes.  Consider societies that revere elders, reincarnated spirits, cultural history, or rituals and traditions which are practiced and mastered over time. 

Ultimately, people can say things about your body or mind, but does this truly reflect intrinsic value? Who can say anything about soul? What if everyone is gifted with the same infinite, inner knowing, yet accepts this to greater and lesser degrees? Only soul echoes the truth.

Yes. Ultimately, deepest intelligence takes down the wall of comparation and separation; all becomes equal.
Rizal, as all becomes equal, everything also fades into nothingness.

Hi Liara .. yes - what is intelligence .. intelligence is living within the soul, the soul of the earth, the soul of the now, being able to remain alive on earth ... when all about you are losing their heads ... becoming a part of the world around us. Thanks Hilary

Hilary, as you imply, intelligence is what individuals choose to make of it. This can be uplifting, inspiring, or something else.

The idea of Intelligence is confusing.
Ultimately, it is defined by societal, personal or other influences.

Interesting topic for thought though.

Raul, so long as mind is in control, judgment and desire shape definitions and understanding. Yet, from the moment one moves beyond mind, judgment and desire are irrelevant. Ego layers grow transparent. You peer inward and "I, me, you" are not there. Nobody exists to be disturbed. Subjectivity and influences vanish. Prejudice does not exist in the heart. In silence, nothing is all that is.
