#Intelligence is a response to a new situation, not out of your past memories but from your present awareness, this very moment.

Intelligence is a spontaneous #responsibility. It has been misunderstood. It has become almost equivalent to #duty. The #reality is different.
There has been a perennial conflict between #intelligence and #intellect.

The man of intellect thinks that he is #intelligent because he knows so much. He has accumulated a great heritage of #knowledge, he is burdened with all kinds of #information.
The man of #intelligence is innocent; he functions moment to moment, his functioning has a freshness and a beauty. But to find intelligence one has to go beyond the mind. #Meditation is the way.
The #intellectual tries to imitate the man of #intelligence and he is capable, he is articulate.
He may be a better #speaker, a better #writer, a better #orator. He can manage to repeat whatever the #enlightened people have said.
Intelligence is choiceless awareness.

You can find a non-intellectual person, he may be a primitive man living in a village. In his acts, you can see intelligence.

You can see a university professor behaving very unintelligently, but he may be a great intellectual.
A real man of #intelligence is not an intellectual at all, he is #existential. He knows perfectly well that intellect is uncreative, that it can't create anything.

At the most, it is a good #survival device, but it is uncreative. All that is created is created by something else
In a university, your intellect is trained. You are taught how to #argue, how to #prove, how to #discuss, how to #debate. You are taught #logic and through logic, intellect arises.

Now logic is in itself very illogical because it does not cover all of #life. It is very partial.
#Life is more than #logic, it is #paradoxical. So once you have got very fixed in your logic you will start losing track of life. You will become more and more of an intellectual and less and less intelligent.

An #intelligent person accepts logic and illogic too.
An #intelligent person always accepts the polarity, he never chooses. He does not say, “I will choose the #negative, or I will choose the #positive, or I will choose this and I will deny that.” #Intelligence accepts all.
#Intelligence means a kind of presence, instantaneous, immediate.

The intellectual listens and yet he does not, he is constantly #thinking whether it is right or not, he agrees or not, yes or no - choosing. In that very choosing he is #losing, he is #missing the whole point.
An intelligent person listens attentively with no idea. There is no need to decide right now. He is simply listening.

If you can listen totally, attentively, in that very listening, you will know what is #truth and what is not the truth. #Silent listening will make you #aware.
