“Intelligence is the inborn capacity to see, to perceive. Every child is born intelligent, then made stupid by the society. We educate him in stupidity. Sooner or later he graduates in stupidity.
Intelligence is a natural phenomenon – just as breathing is, just as seeing is. Intelligence is the inner seeing; it is intuitive. It has nothing to do with intellect, remember. Never confuse intellect with intelligence, they are polar opposites. Intellect is of the head; it is taught by others, it is imposed on you. You have to cultivate it. It is borrowed, it is something foreign, it is not inborn.
But intelligence is inborn. It is your very being, your very nature. “~Osho
Children, if they are lucky, get to live on the vertical plane a long time. So they can go home to it at some point.
The myth for being a good parent is to talk to the child a lot. But my experience is that a child grows up best if his bodily needs, emotional (wordless) needs are taken care of, but their intellect isn’t forced open by some well-meaning parent.
Nursery, kindergarten is good, in my personal experience, the staff their don’t force themselves on children.
Maybe this was the secret of the early Israeli success, kibbutzim and children being reared by staff, instead of the parent. The kids grew up with the capacity to see, to be intelligent, to decide for themselves how the world is.
Today’s Israeli children are mentally wimpy… not mentally tough, not tough at all. They may act tough… but they are destroyed. By the parents.
I remember the two conversations my father had with me before I was 24, and the one my mother had. And, honestly, I didn’t need more.
They spoke with my older brother a lot: he was the decided genius of the house… I got spared.
I know, I sound so wrong. After all your job is to teach your children how to be as miserable, cut off, unhappy, and pretentious as you are. And that is what you are doing. That is what you are teaching.
You cannot teach something that you aren’t.
And when you do, your children know you are lying, they know you are full of crap. As a protective mechanism, they drop the DNA capacity “Empathy” like hot potato. Because if they don’t, they will have to hide their minds, split themselves… instead.
Intelligence is killed by the parents who want to teach you. Intelligence is what you see without thinking. Intelligence is cultivated by stepping back. When you step back you can look anywhere, you can narrow your cone of vision or expand it. You can go back and forth. You can be curious. You can be amused. You are not part of the drama. You are not part of the question. You are not attached to the outcome. Your safety doesn’t depend on it, because you are immortal. I mean the YOU that is not defined by the body, the thoughts, the emotions. The you that cannot die. The you that you probably have never even met, let alone be.
It is one of the hardest capacities to open, the capacity of stepping into intelligence. I call it “detached”. I call it detached because the action you need to take is to step back and detach yourself from the hubbub. Stand in a place where the emotions are emotions can’t touch you. Where you can have sober eyes and not be part of it.
It is hard if you never had an experience of yourself with no words. If you have been talked to all your life. Words spoken from the mind took you out of there, out of your home, out of the vertical.
I notice that the more children there are in a family, the busier people are, the more you are allowed to grow like a weed.
But although it is really hard, being able to move into intelligence is the best thing that can ever happen to you.
Getting that it is not personal. People don’t do things to you, they just do things. Getting that even your emotions is like a machine that just do what machines do. It’s not personal. It has nothing to do with you. And the thoughts… it is also part of the machine, rehashing what it has rehashed before.
When you have the capacity to step back, you find yourself looking at things through intelligence. You hear what is being said, without filters. You know that the answer is in the question. Not in your mind.
You are never offended, you are never superior, you are never inferior, you are untouched. Those terms mean nothing when you stand in your intelligence.
Do you need this capacity?
If you ask me: of course you need it.
If I ask you… the answer is that you probably don’t. That you will probably drop it, because being intelligent, seeing that things aren’t happening to you, that what people do isn’t personal, will be too much of an upset.
You may be too attached to being smart. Or being lazy. Or being stupid. Or being comfortable because no one challenges you.
That is why I won’t turn it on for people willy nilly. You need to be able to see how boring, empty, drama filled, unfulfilling, silly life is, when you live in the middle of the drama.
And you have to be miserable enough. So the way to go about is is to ask me. And pay for the privilege. Email me if you want to talk to me and see if this is the capacity you should be going for.
Give me enough “story” so that I feel compelled to send you a payment link. No story, no link. No conversation. No capacity. Make sure I know your vibration, your soul correction, and have checked you for attachments before you write to me.
I reserve the right to only talk to people I have affinity for. 1
- Current IQ tests depend on your comprehension. Your comprehension is the biggest issue: your mental filters, your mind noise prevent you from actually seeing the question that is thereIQ tests, although they depend on emotional intelligence, spacial intelligence, don’t directly measure your overall intelligence. I have a few students who are clumsy with words, but yet have high intelligenceintelligence is innate. Your parents, education, can only take away from it. And they do… by emphasizing your mind, and book knowledge, and the right answers. Slowly but surely you’ll look nowhere other than in the stored stuff in your mind… intelligence is dead.
