What is the intelligence as an attribute of the Being?

Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

Intelligence is not obtained with more bookish information, or with more experience, or more money or more prestige. Intelligence can blossom in us when we understand the whole process of the Ego, when we understand in depth all that psychological automatism of the "more".

It is vital to understand that the mind is the basic centre of more. In fact, "more" is the same psychological Ego which demands and the mind is its fundamental nucleus.

Whoever wants to be truly intelligent should resolve to die not only at the superficial, intellectual level but also in all the subconscious and unconscious areas of the mind.

When the Ego dies, when the Ego is totally dissolved, the only thing that is left in us is the REAL BEING, the TRUE BEING, the much coveted and very difficult, authentic intelligence.

People think that the mind is creative, they are mistaken. The Ego is not creative and the mind is the basic nucleus of the Ego.

Intelligence is creative because it is of the BEING, it is an attribute of the BEING.

We should not confuse the mind with intelligence.

Those who assume that intelligence is something that can be cultivated like a greenhouse flower, something that can be bought like nobility titles or possessing an excellent library are radically and absolutely mistaken.

It is necessary to deeply understand all the processes of the mind, all the reactions, the psychological "more" which accumulates, etc. Only in this way will the ardent flame of intelligence burst, forth in us in a natural and spontaneous way.

As the Mephistopheles we carry within dissolves, the fire of the creative intelligence manifests itself gradually within us until it shines in a burning manner.

Our true Being is Love and from such love is born real and authentic intelligence which does not belong to time.
