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.

The Greatest Gift

It is a great relief to just allow everything to be as it is. It is a tremendous and great relief. It is the greatest boon that could ever come along in life and that could ever occur. The greatest gift we give ourselves and the greatest gift we give to others is opening intelligence, inexhaustible opening intelligence. This is the greatest gift to ourselves and to others; there is no greater gift.

Immediate and Long-Term Benefits

Inexhaustibly opening intelligence provides for society a standard of immediate and long term benefit, including complete mental and emotional stability, profound insight, potent altruism, beneficial relating, intimate relating, optimal health, economic certainty, spontaneous ethics, beneficial speech, solution-oriented action, spontaneous motivation to benefit all, consistent power to fulfill beneficial creative intent, pristine environment and pervasive mutual harmony. Within yourself, your very self, you are the pristine environment of opening intelligence. You are living as pervasive, mutual harmony. There is no question about that whatsoever.

Short Moments of Open Intelligence

Opening intelligence’s resultant beneficial, prosperous, generous conduct is sealed into the superior instruction of short moments. In each of those short moments benefit, prosperity and generous conduct is sealed—first of all to yourself and then to others, to our habitat, the place where we live.
