Without such control and prescribed ways of thinking, there would probably be anarchy otherwise.
The true self is naturally beautiful, bathed in light and compassion. We are flowers and fruit, crystal water and dense rock, storms at sea and snow drifts. Our mission is to balance what is required by external circumstances with our true and unique essence, to go beyond the limitations imposed in a peaceful way that disturbs no-one but contributes to the splendour of the human spirit.
This is natural intelligence. It has nothing to do with thinking and speculation. It is just being and breathing each breath as if it is our very last.
