Intelligence vs. Belief _ Sadhguru – Transcript
(Questioner): In the society we live in organized groups there will continue to exist belief systems. that’s so then that means there will continue to exist conflicts. (Sadhguru): You are saying they will continue to believe? Is that what you are saying? (Questioner): Yeah belief systems will continue to exist. (Sadhguru): Are you making a prediction for the future? (Questioner): Not necessarily it’s a prediction. (Sadhguru): I think if your intelligence functions if you allow it to function your intelligence is incapable of believing anything. Isn’t it so? Yes or no? Yes? Your intelligence wants to know; it is not ready to believe anything actually but you are forsaking your intelligence because your fear is so dominant you feel comfortable in believing. But if you allow your intelligence to take you ahead your intelligence doesn’t believe anything it wants to know everything isn’t it? Yes? Is that the nature of your intelligence? So if you allow your intelligence to function then you will see all your beliefs will just fall apart because you know you don’t know isn’t it? But it takes a lot of pressure to make you admit it (Laughs) but actually you know that you don’t know isn’t it? Do you know? Yes. Then what’s the problem? You don’t have to admit it to anybody at least to yourself can’t you admit okay I don’t know’? If you don’t know do you see you have to use your intelligence? Do you see this? See suppose let’s say its pitch dark. You don’t know how the ground is. Do you see how alert you will become every step that you take? That’s how it is – when you do not know everything becomes bright it is just looking. Your intelligence is all hyped up and looking. When you assume ‘I know’ everything settles down and you go on with your stupid life isn’t it? Is it alright if you use your intelligence? Do I have your permission? Hum? Is it okay for you to use your intelligence or is it against God? It’s alright. I am asking you is it against God if you employ your intelligence and live your life? No. If God was against intelligence he wouldn’t have created it isn’t it? If the creator was against you functioning intelligently it wouldn’t have been given to you isn’t it? So if you employ your intelligence you will see your intelligence is not willing to believe anything it is only the fear in you. Don’t you ever believe that it is bhakthi. No bhakthi just fear which is making you believe things isn’t it? That’s why you made it ‘bhaya bhakthi.’ (Laughs) There is no bhaya and bhakthi together. If bhakthi comes I am sorry you know what’s bhaya bhakthi? Hum yourself no? Bhaya means fear bhakthi means devotion. See if devotion comes fear will not exist in you. If fear exists that means devotion has not come but you made a hybrid. You want to have both bhayabhakthi. There is no bhaya bhakthi just bhaya only fear. No fear and devotion cannot exist together please see this.
