Infinite Human: Intelligence
by Scott Rabalais
Consider the intelligence of the cosmos, the awareness of existence, the knowledge of all that is. It’s unimaginable to our finite minds to even begin to wrap our arms around the infinite awareness. Even our current Internet is only an infinitesimal fraction of the total knowledge in the cosmos, a relative speck of sand in all of existence. Infinite intelligence is the awareness of all that is, ever was and ever shall be. It is the totality of existence itself.
Perhaps infinite intelligence can be viewed as a vast network of the energy that is the cosmos, in which every facet of this energy is fully aware of every other facet of this energy. The stone on a mountain in Peru is fully aware of a single piece of dust in some faraway galaxy. The energy of the cosmos is self-aware to an infinitesimal degree.
Every human being is an aspect of this infinite intelligence. As light and energy, we are part of the fabric of existence, and we are existence itself. On a deep level, we are aware of every single shiver in every atom of the cosmos. We are aware of the butterfly that skirts across the plains of Africa and the baby seal being born in Antarctica. There is nothing that escapes our reach as “members” of existence.
As human beings, we are not equipped to be consciously aware of the totality of infinite intelligence. Our minds are capable of processing the five-sense stimulations in our immediate environment and to think and feel on a relatively limited level, with respect to the enormity of all existence. Fortunately, we are able to access infinite intelligence, much in a way we might look up a single fact on the Internet or in a large library.
There is a process by which light, energy and information is “funneled” from infinite intelligence down to decipherable bits in our conscious awareness. This process involves infinite intelligence, energy, the soul, our mind-brain, thought and our conscious awareness.
Each human being is a soul, which can be defined as the personification of light. The soul is as real or unreal as anything else in the cosmos, composed of light/energy and vibrating at a specific vibration. It is that aspect of the ocean of existence that is our spiritual self, or what we may call our infinite self. And yet, it is of the one light and in unity with all of existence. Without the perception of separation in the light, there is no actual soul, only pure and infinite light.
For the purpose of seeing ourselves as a “spiritual identity” or “spiritual personality,” let’s consider the soul as the accumulation of our experiences of the light. The soul is a little droplet of light, if you will, that exists only in perception as a unique identity, though it is fully of the light and the light itself. In other words, as a drop of ocean water in the ocean itself can be perceived as a separate drop; the drop is the ocean itself and has all of the qualities of the ocean. Whether or not it is viewed as a drop is simply a matter of perception.
The soul, being of light, is infinite intelligence itself. It is omniscient, which makes each human being an omniscient being. The soul has the ability to “scan” infinite awareness and deliver to our minds, acting as receivers, that which is of the highest good. In a sense, the soul acts like a Google search engine, able to access all information and possibilities in an instant, then deliver specific intelligence or thought energy to us.
We can consider that the soul is personal in nature, being a personification of the light. The purpose of any soul is to experience and to expand in awareness, so as to feed the cosmic experience. Each soul has its own “duty” of experience and will feed the cosmos in its own unique way. There is no judgment of the experience, neither good nor bad, nor is any one person’s experience deemed more or less important or more or less valuable than any other. We feed the cosmos an infinite variety of experiences and it feeds us in return with all that it is.
The nature of the soul is that of the light, and it is the light that seeks greater awareness. Thus, the soul moves us in a direction of growth (expansion of consciousness). The energy of the soul is benevolent, sustaining, protecting and caring for us. What it brings into our awareness is always for our greatest benefit, regardless of appearances. Being unique in our soul “personification,” our soul will bring us experiences unique from any other soul – and ultimately fulfilling.
The soul is the “creator” of our reality, attracting to us that which suits the infinite intelligence of the soul. The soul works through the vehicle of thought, which is of the light and of specific vibrations. The mind-brain is the receiver/transmitter that is capable of reading the soul energy and converting it into thoughts and feelings for us to experience in our conscious awareness.
The ability to be aware of the light that has been transformed to thought/feeling is called intuition. It is through intuition that we are able to access infinite intelligence and thus create a reality out of full awareness rather than only the relatively infinitesimal awareness of our thinking minds.
It is imperative that humans practice the stillness of the thinking mind, for it is only in silence that we are able to “hear” the voice of the soul. It is the silence that also allows for the free and natural expression of the soul energy, a sharing of that energy back to and through the cosmos. The human being that has mastered stillness of the mind is well on the way to experiencing a divine and magnificent sense of reality.
Intuition is the still, small voice that speaks from within. It can be experienced through any of the five senses and/or through a keen kinesthetic sense. It is unmistakable in its energetic feel, characterized by a frequency that distinguishes it from “typical” thought or the chatter of the mind.
Dramatic stories abound of intuitive nudgings that have bypassed the rational mind, only to bring great benefit to those who are in the realm of the expression of such thought. Perhaps someone is alerted in the middle of a deep sleep to awaken and check on a neighbor, only to find smoke arising from the neighbor’s home. Or, as a more common example, how often have we escaped a near traffic collision, alerted by a thought that seemingly comes out of nowhere? Infinite intelligence sees all, knows all and communicates to us instantly to create a reality with respect to our soul awareness.
More common examples not involving such dramatics may include guidance on where to live, what to eat, what job to take, how to spend money or whether to call on a friend. Intuitive guidance is there for the asking in every situation, regardless of the perceived level of importance to us.
Intuition can give us direction that comes without reasoning or understanding, indicating, for example, that we should get in our car and start driving east. We are to follow these intuitive urgings and trust that the infinite intelligence is aware on a more expansive level what the purpose is in the trip. Reasoning and understanding can be applied in hindsight.
The curious among us may ask why infinite intelligence does not give out in advance winning lottery numbers or the winning horse of the Kentucky Derby. Fortunes can be made! This is because the soul gives information and guidance relative to soul growth, which does not necessarily mean financial growth. The soul is interested in experience and awareness, not necessarily the fattening of the wallet. The soul grants what is needed, not necessarily what is wanted.
The human being is meant to live according to infinite intelligence. Like freedom, it is who we are and we have every right to access it for our own well-being. Living according to our infinite awareness gives us a mountaintop experience like no other. It will grant us an experience that is a masterpiece of reality. Listening to and expressing the infinite intelligence through the soul is the highest expression for a human being on this planet. It is what we are here to be, and it is what we are here to do.
