You are the person that you created yourself to be. Can knowledge change that?
Knowledge cannot create because knowledge is of the past. It is our history. Since knowledge cannot create and you are the result of creation, then you are a result of Intelligence. So, if you are the result of Intelligence, knowledge cannot change that.
Psychologically, when you were born, there was a blank space. Then you created yourself a certain way based on your experiences, and now you are trying to use knowledge to change that. That is the dynamic of current psychology, using knowledge to alter what you have created.
You created the manner in which you will live your life by virtue of what you experienced before you had the capacity to remember (using language). After you created the way you were going to live your life then memory kicked in and you started repeating what you are going to do for the rest of your life. Thinking is knowledge repeated. You don’t have any memory of that creation, as creation cannot be remembered. It is like a default action, automatic.
If you look at things in context, creation comes from the domain of Intelligence, and thinking/memory comes from the domain of knowledge. You have knowledge, which is the way you are now; and you have intelligence, which is what created the way you are. From knowledge people are thinking they can alter intelligence.
Before you were 4 years of age you created your entire life, based on everything you experienced up to that point. You created this using intelligence. So, in order to alter that which you are, you need to use intelligence since knowledge will keep repeating the same thing over and over.
The only way to get out of knowledge is to see that you don’t know anything, to come from the unknown. That is intelligence. If you can see that knowledge is causing you to repeat all your past, all your pain and suffering; you might see that if you come from the place of “I don’t know,” you will be in a different place. You will be outside of knowledge, a place which is possibly out of the pain and suffering.
Knowledge cannot change intelligence because intelligence is in the now. It is ever flowing. Intelligence is in each new now, and knowledge is what has already happened. Knowledge is the dog chasing its own tail which it can never catch.
When you were born you were pure intelligence. Intelligence sees that you came into a violent world, maybe even held upside down by your feet and smacked to prove it. You, as your intelligence, didn’t have words for these things, but you felt the pain and these experiences. This new intelligence knew it wanted to get away from the violence, yet couldn’t. It is sort of like you (intelligence) landed in a strange place — you looked around at your surroundings, and immediately you realized it wasn’t a place you wanted to be.
Intelligence learns from the experiences of your life. So everything that it creates comes from, or in reaction to, this violently charged world. Even the things in you that are not violent are violent because they are created in relation to a violent world. Even the moving away from violence is violence, as defending already includes violence in it. All of your life comes from or a reaction to violence.
The true definition of creation is that you create it and then forget you created it and begin living it. We create that which we are going to be before we have a memory of what we created. So you were born, and intelligence looks around and says, “This place is insane. I am going to have to be insane in order to live here.” That was the creation of you being insane in order to survive living on this planet.
Then around four years of age you give up, and intelligence dies in you completely, and you live your life as an insane person. Every opportunity you have to become sane, you will still see insanity because that is the context you created for your life, and that is what will be reinforced over and over until that is all you can see.
You might also create some sub-categories for the insanity such as unworthy or victim or controlling or vain or prideful or arrogant or smart or whatever context you will live your life as, and you will reinforce that in your life.
Sometimes it is a matter of you seeking one thing and then in order to find a word to match it, you fall into the word. For example, someone who was seeking humility might have gotten caught in the word unworthy, as they seemed to be the same and there is confusion. Then they live their life in the context of unworthy thinking it was humility.
Around the age of 4, you have created your reaction to all of the sensations that you are going to be presented with. You have created a set of rules about everything in your life: “If this happens, I am going to do this. And if that happens I am going to do that…” You are forced into a tiny little cubicle by your parents, the world, by everything. You have taken so much, and you finally give up and quit resisting. All the beatings, physically and psychologically, finally break you and you allow you to become a trained and conditioned robot. From then on you join in and add to the beliefs of the world, the violence of the world.
Then after many years of living, you might realize you are in pain and suffering and that you are living in a violent world and want to change your life. The only thing you know to use is thought, which is really remembered thoughts repeating the past over and over. You are then using thoughts to alter what you already thought. And you cannot alter your already thought thoughts using thought.
You can, however, alter your actions. You can alter the “when this happens I am going to do this,” which might alter your physical presence or the way in which you do something. Doing that might trick yourself, and you might trip and fall into a cavern of nothingness because you are putting a stop/pause into your robotic routines which could transform your life.
If or when you move over into intelligence, you can then observe what you have been doing or are still doing. That observation from the place of intelligence means seeing your actions 100 percent without any feelings, any judgments or any attachments. Seeing yourself in that manner will alter your behavior automatically, and no adjustment will need to be done by you. Speaking the truth of the observation of what is happening in the moment brings you energy, and that energy can be expanded upon greatly by speaking it verbally to another or with many others.
Even knowledge has a tiny bit of intelligence in it, and it is that tiny part that needs to be accessed in order to observe yourself 100 percent in the moment. In your life there is the huge, bellowing balloon of knowledge and a tiny little speck of intelligence.
Each time we see a truth in the moment and it is observed 100 percent — that is intelligence. The problem is that most people are buried in thought which is of the past. They drag yesterday into today, and then they say they are going to change today tomorrow. So they are everywhere but in the “now moment”.
Truth is a context, so if you see the smallest part of it, you get the whole thing. When I say to speak truth, I don’t necessarily mean the meaning of life, I am speaking about the “I ate the last cookie,” or “I slammed the door,” or “I just told a lie.”
The intelligence that you had when you came here has been moving right along with you your whole life. You just have it buried under 10,000 tons of beliefs, feelings, opinions and judgments so that you are not able to see/hear it. Yet, I say intelligence is not here because it hasn’t been able to manifest. It might be in a seed form and be present to some extent until the age of 4, but it is killed so quickly that it is no longer actually here. That intelligence is like planting a seed, and then as soon as you see it grow, you pull it out (without realizing it). But, it is a self-regenerating seed, so there is the possibility of it manifesting anew.
If intelligence were to manifest, we wouldn’t have wars. We wouldn’t have fights or violence or religions or marriages or any beliefs. We would be free.
