A Higher Form of Intelligence
Jacques is a brilliant engineer with an inspiring vision of the future. He also happens to be 101 years old! Look him up on Google :-)
The key word in this quote, I believe, is "intelligent use".
Science and technology are tools. According to most scientists, we have the resources and technology to meet the needs of every human on the planet - all seven billion of us! And we can do it while protecting and sustaining our environment. After all, if the environment goes, we go with it, right?
The challenge is in determining what is "intelligent use" of those tools, and how do we access that intelligence?
First of all, what is "intelligence"? How do we know when the choices we make and the actions we take will bring desirable results?
Years ago, after going through a painful divorce, losing my job, and being diagnosed with PTSD, I just had stop and ask myself, "How did I get here??"
Up until that moment, I thought I was pretty smart. Graduated at the top of my class in High School and college. Had a career in television that resulted in producing an environmental documentary that was used by government agencies across the U.S. for training purposes for many years. I was married, had a kid, owned a home. In other words, I was living the "American Dream".
So what happened? How could it all go so wrong?
I have mentioned many times that, at the age of 40, I was diagnosed with PTSD. My parents survived the Holocaust and came to the U.S. to build new lives. They were very successful, creating a business in Detroit that employed dozens of people and has lasted to this day. They had four children and provided all of us with a comfortable home, education, and camping trips in the summer.
So how did I "get" PTSD?? And what effect did that have upon my life?
I used to think it was because I was exposed to the stories of what happened to my Dad during the war. And yes, that can have a traumatizing effect on a small child.
However, even children of Holocaust Survivors who NEVER hear the stories, and maybe did not know their parents were survivors until they were grown, STILL experience PTSD.
How is this possible? And what effect does this have on "intelligence"?
PTSD, it turns out, can be passed down "epigenetically" across many generations and can lead to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual illness or disease.
In other words, what happened in our parent's, grandparent's, and great-great grandparent's lives still affects our Hearts and Minds.
There are many sources of chronic stress in our world today, and all of them can wreak havoc on our hearts and minds, interfering with our ability to make truly intelligent choices in our lives.
Heart Intelligence is a higher form of conscious awareness that empowers the brain and the Mind to function at optimum levels.
Heart Intelligence leads to Spiritual Awareness - the awareness that everything is connected.
The awareness that everything is connected has become a requirement for our survival, not just a luxury for the spiritually minded.
In today's complex world, we need a more complex "higher" form of intelligence. Bringing the Heart and the Mind into "coherence" allows us to think faster, make better decisions, and create and use tools that help us live better lives.
In my latest webinar at the Mind With Heart Virtual Learning Center, I share what I have learned over the years about Heart Intelligence and Heart Coherence.
I invite you to
