Intelligence

~ In our culture we overvalue the intellect, we imagine that to be enlightened demands extraordinary intelligence. In fact many kinds of cleverness are just further obscurations. As the Tibetan saying goes “if you are too clever, you could miss the point entirely”: Patrul Rinpoche ” the logical mind seems interesting , but it is the seed of delusion” People become obsessed with their own theories and miss the point of everything. Another Tibetan saying : Theories are like patches on a coat , one day they wear off”~
