TWO KINDS OF INTELLIGENCE – Rumi

There are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired,
as a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
from books and from what the teacher says,
collecting information from the traditional sciences
as well as from the new sciences.
With such intelligence you rise in the world.
You get ranked ahead or behind others
in regard to your competence in retaining
information. You stroll with this intelligence
in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more
marks on your preserving tablets.
There is another kind of tablet, one
already completed and preserved inside you.
A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness
in the center of the chest. This other intelligence
does not turn yellow or stagnate. It’s fluid,
and it doesn’t move from outside to inside
through conduits of plumbing-learning.
This second knowing is a fountainhead
from within you, moving out.
Rumi


 

RUMI describes the recording of rote learning as “marks on your preserving tablets”, so predictive of the digital Akashic record people are making on their smart devices now!

  1. Thank you for the first post.

    Perfect for the first post, I guess.

    Rumi is one person whom I enjoy reading; of course, translated work!

    Thanks again.

    Namasté.

  2. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking
    what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!)
    the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still
    in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of
    yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    1. Namaste, Justin, and thank you for reaching out to me! Feel free to comment any time. And CBD Oil, that’s a very good thing. Awesome.
      The theme is Baskerville 2. I haven’t tweaked it at all (much) lol…
      If you are experiencing lags in loading, the first thing to ask is about the size of your images, right?
      I’ll definitely check out your suggestion, and you stay well too! On my main blog I shared how to make Thieve’s Oil, you might like to have a peek at https://eatingtoascend.com/2020/03/30/covid-19-coronavirus-protection-diy-thieves-essential-oil-recipe-w-photos/
