A loving intellect

Baba says, ‘those who have a loving intellect will stay in remembrance‘. A loving intellect is one that is connected to God. In the epic Mahabharata, it is shown that the Pandavas had a loving intellect- no matter what, they always took their guidance from their Friend and Mentor, Krishna (depicted as God). The Kauravas are shown as having non-loving intellects- they followed the dictates of Ravan (the vices) and thereby made bad decisions based on jealousy, malice, competition, greed, ego.

For half the cycle, the soul has been used to following these dictates of Ravan and looking at the world in a binary way – mine vs. yours, right vs. wrong, less vs. more, win vs. lose etc. When I fall into any one of these many spirals created by Ravan, it is as if a spell is cast on my intellect and it begins to shut down to all reason, logic, to love and compassion. It views a different idea from its own being presented as a threat to its supremacy, constantly sulks or complains, demands loyalty from others, feeds of approval and validation and is characterized by its attachment to ‘I’ and ‘mine’. This chronic identification with the external leads to a fear of loss and therefore such an intellect is driven to ‘win’ at all costs, to ensure it’s desired outcome.

Simply put, I have a loving intellect when I am soul conscious and a non-loving intellect when I am trapped in body consciousness.

And so Baba reminds us every single day- consider yourself a soul and remember Me alone. When I do that I am in realization of who I am and what I am here to do. That I am a world transformer and that I am here to help Baba transform this world from unrighteous to righteous, from hell to heaven, from a jungle of thorns into a garden of flowers.

Baba says, ‘your fight is not against your brothers and sisters, it is against Ravan‘. This world is my family. Every soul is a child of God and has equal rights. Yes, some have recognized Him and some haven’t. It is my duty towards my brothers and sisters to introduce them to their Father so they experience that same sense of belonging and peace that I have, so they have their fair shot at claiming their inheritance.

Have a loving intellect, says Baba. That comes with remembrance.
