What is the real intelligence we must cultivate?

Winnow the real from the apparent. Look inside the event, for the kernel, the meaning. Dwell over on your reality of the soul; you are pure, indestructible, and unaffected by the ups and downs of life; you are indeed the true, eternal, unchanging ‘you’, the entity which is all this. A mere five-minute inquiry will convince you that you are not the body, senses, mind or intelligence, name or form, but you are the same soul that appears as all this variety. Once you get a glimpse of this truth, hold on to it; do not allow it to slip. Make it your permanent possession. As a first step towards the acquisition of this wisdom and detachment, enter from now on into a discipline of incessant remembrance of God through the Name of the Lord. All the hours spent in gossip, watching sports or films, and in hollow conversation can best be used for silent contemplation of the Name and Form — the splendor of the Lord!
