Most of what is applauded as intelligence in modern societies is merely the clever linking together of strings of socially acceptable cliches.
Most of what is applauded as great intelligence in modern societies is merely the linking together of socially approved and *audience flattering* cliches.
You don’t think so? Analyze the speech of any greatly admired civic leader or political figure.
Meanwhile, the truth and real intelligence lie uninspected and overlooked… requiring as they do, a certain letting go of the comfortable blanket of ego into an arena of the fearfully unexpected.
An arena fertile with the life energizing aspects of real self and of rebirth into authenticity..
But there are actually none among us who travel outside of the comfort zone of the familiar into the wisdom of insecurity, without being prodded by pain and discomfort … sometimes the discomfort of the familiar having become soured and sapping of life….
People think folks are intelligent who enable people in their desire to wither away in the cesspool of ego pleasuring.
Actual life renewing truth is overlooked and relegated to the pool of the Unapproved and Hidden, both in cultures and in ourselves.
And that’s why God invented pain.
