“…I said its INTELLIGENCE…”
Our culture has a mental madness of MORE. More is better. More money, more possessions,
more “intellect”. Go to school, learn more, become smarter, become more intelligent. Upon examination, It’s not hard to see that intelligence is the exact opposite. It is not the clinging to a culmination of ideas that may have grown obsolete. It’s always being in a neutral state of wonder and presence. It’s only through this stillness that you can “respond like a shadow”, as Bruce Lee once put it. Clearly, silent adaptability seems to be the pinnacle of intellect.
