If it is your intelligence that is creating your ego… that you think you have a very great IQ, then it is better to bring it down a little (1980-0517.1); We should tell our intelligence 3 things: ‘I am a Realised Soul’… ‘Nothing can make me unhappy’… and ‘Nothing can befool me’. We have to believe it in our hearts, not in our brains. If we can do these things, and they settle down on our intelligence, then the Divine will see to the rest of it, and we will become very loving and considerate persons. ‘Nothing should pamper me, and nothing should make me unhappy… nobody can hurt me’. Think that we have our Mother with us, and She is breaking all our granthis – we have only to make sure we don’t create more granthis, knots (1980-0517.1); Anybody who is intelligent, cannot have much money… it is a fact… it doesn’t go hand in hand. A person who is a worshipper of Saraswati, doesn’t get so much Lakshmi… always you will find (.0011)

If this enlightened intelligence comes into us, this is wisdom. That they are laughing at me, someone is dominating me, or making fun of me – all these fears will disappear, just like that. You are a flower, and you are fragrant, and the fragrance is blowing, and many bees are going to come to you – that’s what you are, tell yourself like that, bring your intelligence to that level, not too high, nor too low, but in the centre, and everything can be solved in no time (1980-0517.1)
