The Mind and Applied Intelligence
In January took at look at ourselves, our relationship with the self and how through the use of our own voice and sound we could be our truest, highest self. During the next few weeks I want to take us on a discovery of our minds. I want us to understand the mind, its function, its challenges and discover how to make it our best friend. In order to do this we need to clarify the relationship between ourselves and our mind.
What is intelligence?
We begin with a look at Intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to manifest the thoughts that we identify with and create clear intentions from. Intelligence is not the thoughts themselves, nor just the intellect, nor knowing something. It is the capacity to act on what we know and to evaluate quickly the result of our choices.
What is Applied intelligence?
Is the capacity of the mind to determine the thoughts we dwell on, the intentions we manifest and the actions we take. With applied intelligence you have subjective control to select and direct your thought projections.
How does it work?
Remember we talked about mantra, man being mind, tra being projection. When you can control your thought projections, you are said to have applied intelligence. This is not easy, but with patience and discipline it can be learnt. The normal way of thinking is we attach to an idea, feeling, or belief that is just a stream of messages running through our mind as a result of internal and external stimulation. When we do not consciously understand this we let those random thoughts narrow our perception of what is, which slows our ability to learn and adapt to new environments. The key to appropriate development of intelligence is the power of non-attachment. It is the capacity to select a strategy, from competing factions, that can get you to the goal. It is the higher form of the negative mind In this context, it is your ability to negate false learning and move quickly to a new insight and direction. This week we will analyse the kinds of thoughts we are constantly having from the elevation and development of our neutral mind and focus on the projection we want have.
