All-encompassing Pure View of Open Intelligence

A simple way to think about it is that within the all-encompassing pure view of open intelligence, all data appear. Those data streams are never separated from open intelligence. The data stream could be called anything: a thought, an emotion, a sensation, an intuition, an experience, a person, place or thing. No matter what it’s called, no matter what its description, it is a data stream appearing in open intelligence.

The Solution to All Problems

In this simple way, in our own individual experience, we come to very clearly see the power of open intelligence, that power of open intelligence can do what noting else has been able to do, and open intelligence has something for everyone. It isn’t something anyone gets from anyone else; it’s the substance, the sole single substance of all human experience no matter what it is. When we demonstrate to ourselves in our own experience its power, then we can see how it easily is the solution to all kinds of problems that human beings may have experienced.

Open Intelligence is Pivotal

Open intelligence is pivotal in our human experience. If we want to understand all of our human experience, everything we know about our human experience, individually or collectively, open intelligence is pivotal. It is only by gaining confidence in open intelligence for each of us individually and there by solving our own personal problems that we can then see the power of open intelligence to find solutions to many of the problems facing human beings.

Familiarity with Open Intelligence

The more we get familiar with open intelligence, the more it’s clear that open intelligence is naturally and spontaneously present as the source of all thinking. By resting as open intelligence rather than following all the stories of thought, we find peacefulness within ourselves and clarity within ourselves that we may have never known before. Rather than trying to maintain it as a state that is separate from thought, we find that we don’t even have to worry about breaking things up or dividing them up in that way.

Practice of Short Moments

The practice of short moments many times is extremely profound, and anyone who is open enough to enter into it quickly finds that it is extremely profound. It allows for this instinctive realization with no destination to be the case in the self-release of the here and now. What it shows you in your own experience is the self-freeing dynamic of the here and now, and it shows you that most personally in your own experience, with your own thoughts, emotions, sensations and other experiences.

Open Intelligence is Lucid and Clear

When we look closer at the nature of our own experience, then we can really examine whether or not thoughts or other phenomena are self-generated. We really can question whether or not thoughts have some independent power to affect our well-being or whether it’s in open intelligence itself that there is a natural state of perfection and well-being in which there is total lucidity and clarity, and which is always the case regardless of thinking. This is a very important key point I have just mentioned: open intelligence is always the same, and it is lucid and clear regardless of thinking.

Immediate Benefit

We start to realize that there is a whole other outlook on life, a whole other way to understand life, a whole other way to be. We may be a little bit tentative about this at first, but because it is so convincing in terms of its immediate benefit to us, we, although tentative, go right ahead anyway. Plus, we see in our friends a change; we see a dramatic change, a dramatic glow.

Immediate Benefit

I have had many people come to me and say, “I have heard these words over and over and over again; however, when they were coupled with a metaphor, suddenly the decisive experience of opening intelligence came home to me. It came home to me, and that was it.” We start to realize that there is a whole other outlook on life, a whole other way to understand life, a whole other way to be. We may be a little bit tentative about this at first, but because it is so convincing in terms of its immediate benefit to us, we, although tentative, go right ahead anyway. Plus, we see in our friends a change; we see a dramatic change, a dramatic glow.

The Dynamic Energy of Open Intelligence

Regardless of the many data that seem to appear, they are simply the dynamic energy of opening intelligence, whatever it is. Whatever datum appears, it is fine; it’s just fine. Thoughts, emotions, sensations and other experience—at all times and in all circumstances, these data are opening intelligence alone, and there is recognition of opening intelligence shining brightly in all moments, shining very, very brightly in all moments. Opening intelligence and its dynamic energy—data—brightly and inseparably superimposed like a rainbow and space.

Easeful Relationships

When we show up with our family and our loved ones in open intelligence, we find that we have a new disposition; we have a completely new disposition with people that we had an entirely different attitude towards. Our data streams would run wild all over the place whenever we were with them perhaps, and now we find that we are just happy to be with them, that we are looking for ways to be of service to them, whether it’s cooking a special dish or taking some photographs and then sending them out to people who had attended the event. It’s just absolutely marvelous, it really is.
