Awareness Exercise: Become aware of all the intelligence you witness today. Instead of seeing the intelligence as exclusive to each individual you see expressing it, become aware that intelligence is actually a substance which exists in the divine Mind, the supreme consciousness, the Great I AM, and that Man is the vehicle through which it is expressed. What are you noticing? How does seeing intelligence in this way deepen your understanding of your relationship to God?
“Intelligence. Substance; self-existent and eternal Mind; that which is never unconscious nor limited.” (SH 588:24-25)
