The illusive intellect and the illuminating intellect – Round 9

denise_scotto

The illusive intellect is make-believe. It manifests things that are imagined or pretended and tries to make them real and true. It is driven by crooked intelligence and travels in many winding pathways in search of image rather than reality and imitation rather than original.

The illuminating intellect stays in the company of Truth, and is guided by wisdom. This allows the light of true knowledge to shine through the darkness of ignorance, giving it the ability to discern real from unreal, truth from falsehood, and right from wrong.

    Illusive Intellect – It is like living from the eyes of the other, constantly fearful of being judged and compared to. No matter what you have is never enough, always striving for more and thus creating unhappiness (this competitive world).

    Illuminated Intellect – It is like living from the inside out. When you are internally powered or focussed, the world becomes a co-operative place. It is living with contentment.
