True Source of Satisfaction

By gaining confidence in open intelligence when you are young, you get over all this stuff of being seduced by something that cannot provide any satisfaction. Believe me, the things you might think are some kind of satisfaction, like intimate relationships, or having kids, or careers—these are not sources of satisfaction! These cannot bring you satisfaction. You can try to force yourself to believe that they are bringing you satisfaction, but now that you know about gaining confidence in aware pure intelligence, these will never bring you satisfaction. The only way you will be able to have satisfying relationships—whether they are career-wise, with your kids, or with your intimate partners—is to have all of that based on confidence in open intelligence. It’s the only way; otherwise, these relationships are really constant sources of turmoil and frustration.

Open Intelligence – The Source of All Experience

Say, you had an incredible talent for baking bread, but you had never baked bread in your life. You wouldn’t know that you had that talent, but once you started to bake bread, you would get more and more familiar with your talent. Open intelligence is similar in that once it’s identified as the source of experience, then by short moments of open intelligence, repeated many times, there’s more and more open intelligence that is noticed in one’s daily experience. It’s the source of that experience. It’s seen that open intelligence is really the mainstay, ground and absolute nature. Open intelligence is not only the absolute human nature, but is also the absolute nature of everything.
