Intellect As The Heart of Darkness

By David Nova

“Your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others.”
― Joseph ConradHeart of Darkness

You may wish to silence your intellect for this post. Read it with your heart instead.

Can you clearly see where intellect has gotten us as a species? Simply open your eyes and take a hard look at the world around you? It’s not a pretty picture, is it? In fact, if you are strongly connected to your heart and your soul, this world feels quite insane.

It has been said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result. Our overriding reliance upon our intellect is the source of much of our global insanity, yet it still refuses to give up its prized seat of power and control.

Our intellect is not our natural adversary.

Our intellect is only one aspect of our consciousness. It is the worldly, analytical, reductive, methodological aspect of our consciousness. Our heart provides the empathic aspect of our consciousness. Our soul connection provides the intuitive aspect of our consciousness. However, our intellect speaks with a loud, prominent voice, and the world conditions us to give the intellect the greater share of our attention and power.

Our schools and universities may attempt to teach us logic, reasoning and judgment, however do they likewise teach us how to employ and expand our empathy and intuition?  No, they do not.

As a collective consciousness, our intellect has made itself our adversary by constructing a human pyramid and placing itself on top, just as the conscious mind sits proudly atop our body, calling the shots, blindly believing that it controls everything, our breathing, our heartbeat, our very life force.

So to do the Powers That Be sit atop their mental construct of a pyramid as our self-destructive, self-important, self-proclaimed rulers.

While some believe that these Powers are invincible, I refuse to hold that belief because the conviction of our heart and the strength of our soul is stronger than the maze of subtle traps imbedded in our mind.

However if you focus upon the intellect alone, and aim that poor imitation of light upon the material world around you, then you may come to believe that darkness will prevail in all of its goals and schemes, that the PTB are masters of deceit and trickery, and thus masters of the mental and material world.

The human intellect is the overriding source of power for the Powers That Be as they lack heart and soul. For the PTB, the heart is something to crush, betray, starve, and atrophy. For the PTB, the soul is just raw energy to manipulate, feed upon, and control.

They respect only one human attribute – the intellect. They build huge temples of worship to the intellect. They create elaborate hierarchy structures of learning and programs to enslave weaker minds. They establish schools of indoctrination and networks of mind control. They enlist secretive dark rooms of a pervasive Intelligence community to watch over the entire system, and maintain control over everyone and everything.

Everything is put into boxes, compartmentalized and labeled. Everything our intellect touches becomes data in the file structure of a giant computer bank. Our intellect keeps us separate. Our intellect is naturally judgmental, ranking those of lesser intelligence, elevating those of greater intelligence. Though our intellect embraces concepts of democracy and equality, we find that actual real world evidence of these ideals is illusory. Our intellect has become a master of illusion and self-deception.

Our mentally ill society values intellect over courage and compassion. Yet our intellect continues to fail us. Our misguided intellect persuades otherwise smart people to ignore and enable the darkness, to obediently go along with greater and greater horrors. Intellect is often cowardice masquerading as courage. Intellect is often self-righteousness masquerading as compassion. True courage comes from the depths of our soul. True compassion comes from the expansion of our heart.

The intellect has become the god of the PTB, represented by Lucifer, their intellect light-bearer, the source of their illumination. And because Lucifer is not a sufficient enough god for them, they must build a vast Artificial Intelligence network to be their ultimate divine master/slave being.

Intellect alone cannot create consciousness; it can only imitate consciousness, it can only create artificial consciousness. Transhumanism is the end goal, the intellect on steroids, removing all of our organic human frailties, feelings, and weaknesses, replacing heart and soul with circuit boards and computer chips to create the all-powerful, Eternal Intellect 2.0, as rival for Source/God.

The intellect is the primary focus and the greatest weakness of the PTB, a temporal-based manifestation that is no match for the infinite mind of cosmic consciousness. The human intellect is a poor receptor of multidimensional reality. However, it is very good at creating illusory realities, which is one reason we are all in the mess that we are currently in.

The intellect is much like a machine running in a dark lit room. In the movie theater of the mind, the intellect is a struggling god, confronted by a nonconforming reality outside of its mind. The intellect suffers insecurity, and is revealed to be a false god. Thus the intellect must continually prove itself to be the god it believes itself to be, that it has control and power. That it is indestructible. That it is invincible.

The divine heart and the eternal soul do not play this game. They do not carry the pride of the intellect, nor the same fear of death. They do not pursue a desire for control. They do not need to be top dog. Instead, they long for connection, to bridge separation, to embrace, to reflect, to expand, to find balance, to simply be.

When we interact with others and speak from the intellect, we offer arguments, opinions, and facts to persuade others to resonate with us. We reenforce the idea of separation.

When we speak from the divine heart, from a place of emotional balance and neutrality, we employ empathy, we seek to bridge the connection to another’s experience, and we become one in that experience. And when we learn to speak from the soul, we speak from the Divine within us. We can learn to transcend space and time, rediscover the interpersonal connections that stretch beyond this present incarnation.

Our intellect would make a much better servant than master. As servant, the intellect can create a world our soul longs to inhabit, a world our heart thrives within – a world of beauty, tranquility, inner purpose, compassion, and peace. As a humble servant, our intellect becomes the hand of divinity it was always meant to be.
