The illuminating intellect and the illusive intellect – Round 13

The illuminating intellect sits joyfully in the awareness of the truth and while seeing eye to eye with the ONE TRUTH, SEES only the Light in which there are no shadows, no cares, or worries; It BECOMES light and creates no shadows, has no cares or fears and no worries.

This intellect sees life as a dreamer would, who, when awakened from sleep has nothing to hold on to. The dream, scarcely remembered, was just a passing experience, pleasant or not so pleasant.

The illuminating intellect enjoys remaining in the sweetness of the silence, the wisdom of the ONE TRUTH and constantly weaves a cocoon of love around itself as it beams into the world.

The illusive intellect wanders around constantly grabbing at the shadowy images which float around, pretending to be real, pretending to be truth. These images are the mirages in the desert of falsehood and disappears as quickly as they appear.

Such an intellect, because of its separation from the light of TRUTH, cannot see and is mired in disappointments, worries and unpleasantries. The illusive intellect bumps around discontentedly and hopelessly in the thickness of the darkness and loses its peace.

The illusive intellect and the illuminating intellect – Round 12

The illusive intellect loves to multitask. It is convinced that it can engage in several tasks at the same time promising the best result for each task. The more tasks at hand, the more extrovert the intellect becomes, absorbing the vibrations emanating from people and from the atmosphere. These gross vibrations form a cloud around the intellect robbing it of its clarity. The illusive intellect is deceived by its own lack of clarity and not by others!

The illuminating intellect is introverted and it loves to be in solitude. Just as an inventor stays in complete solitude in order to create an invention, so too the illuminating intellect stays in solitude and concentrates in the depths of ONE. The illuminating intellect removes its attention from external attractions and from the pulls of people. It goes beyond the surrounding vibrations in the atmosphere. In solitude the illuminating intellect is focused and is in a state of balance — an embodiment of experience and a detached observer.
