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 and 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 tablet.

There is another kind of tablet, one already completed and preserved inside of you. A spring overflowing it's 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 the conduits of plumbing-learning.

This second knowing is a fountainhead from within you moving out.
-- Rumi

I love Rumi, Such wisdom in his words!!!

Set aside some time to listen to your inner dialogue as often as you can............listen and practice discerning between "Learned Thoughts", "everyday chatter" and "Inner Wisdom". What is your Inner Wisdom trying to teach you?

Happy Mother's Day!!!!...........I am fortunate to have some really freaking cool Mother's in my life and I'm sending them all my love right now!!!..........Be Well!!
