What is being intelligent…?? What is intelligence?? Is the person who reads a bunch of scientific, spiritual, philosophical books, and then talks about them, truly intelligent??
And what about the physically and psychologically old person who has lived many, many, many years on this earth…?? Is that person intelligent just because of the many experiences lived through time??
All these people I have mentioned have a great amount of acquired knowledge, memory of experiences, an accumulation of information of the past; so, in their vanity and unconscious thinking they follow what society says and believe they are intelligent. But, are they??
Because intelligence in reality is not a product of knowledge, like happiness and love are not products of this accumulation of information either.
If intelligence were a product of knowledge, of experience, of accumulation of information, then the world would be a paradise and everybody would behave morally and be Enlightened. Can you understand this?? Take a moment if you have to ponder.
So, the worst thing for your development as a moral human being is to believe that you are intelligent because you have knowledge and experience, because this irrational belief makes you egoistical, prideful, and it stops you from realizing your own weaknesses, your own faults, your own unhealthy patterns.
