The ILLUSIVE intellect is maya. It plays with the mystery of illusion. Illusion conceals unity and reveals disharmony. The intellect positions illusion as ‘every cloud has a silver lining’ and traps itself in the bog of false promises.
The ILLUMINATED intellect needs silence to go into the depth of the ocean of spiritual understanding. By being connected to the ‘Source’ of spiritual knowledge, the intellect becomes like a golden vessel that enables the soul to imbibe the truth and remove illusion. It is said that the milk of a lioness can only be stored in a golden vessel. For the intellect to become like a golden vessel it needs connection, concentration, and cohesion.
