If we identify with our mind as our own ‘intelligence’, then we are limited to just that.
Our mind only knows what we personally have read, listened to, seen, or experienced. So we are limited to just that. Intelligence is not facts, figures, memories, solving puzzles etc. That is simply memory retention.
However, within our true essence, our soul, we have all the wisdom, true intelligence, that we will ever need, we have the wisdom of the universe. Intelligence is beyond the mind. The mind is limited to temporary mental forms that are born and die.
We access this knowledge, wisdom and real intelligence by disassociating with our mind and going deep within ourselves and being totally conscious and awake now. Our inner knowledge is covered by the endless rattling noise of our mindstream of thought.
We are the knower and we are the knowledge.
