“Knowledge and wisdom”
Understand that life will happen the way it is meant to happen, whether you like it or not. Understand that the expectations of the mind of what should happen in daily life may or may not happen.
Understand that the expectations of the mind that happen are not made by you, but are made to happen by the intelligence in life. Understand that what happens in life is a singular movement without actions.
Understand that actions are optical illusions of the singular movement of life by the intelligence in life. When this understanding cements in your mind, you will appreciate the intelligence in life, which is in every moment.
Understand deeply that there is no beginning and there is no end in life. Understand deeply that there is no cause in daily life. Understand deeply that there is no effect in daily life.
Understand deeply that there is no numerical duration of time within any moment in daily life. Understand deeply that there is only a singular movement in any moment in daily life, by the intelligence in life.
Understand that you are not appreciating a movement, but you appreciate an action which is not an actuality in daily life. But why are you not appreciating a man or a woman every moment, because he or she is only moving every moment in daily life?
He is moving every moment. She is moving every moment. Why do you not appreciate that? Understand deeply that even when man or woman is sitting and not doing any action, their lips are moving when they talk.
Understand deeply that even when man or woman is sitting and not talking, their fingers, hands and feet will be moving. Understand deeply that even when man or woman is sitting and not talking, their head will be moving.
Understand deeply that even when man or woman is sitting and not talking or doing any action, their body will be aging every moment and aging is a movement too.
When you understand that man and woman are moving every moment, you will appreciate that they are moving, by the intelligence in life. You will not be interested in what you expect out of their moving.
The enlightened appreciate daily life as it is and do not expect how daily life should be.

Intelligence is a deeply appreciated quality. Where it is regarded, with evidence, as guiding the actions and counsels of men or women, those men and women are held in esteem. The desire for personal aggrandisement ensures that there is no shortage of claimants to intelligence, with mechanical means developed for even measuring the IQ, as it is termed. The wise have revealed both in these articles and elsewhere that man is not the doer. Thus, neither man nor his attributed intelligence can be the author of actions or counsels, never mind the illusory appearance. Meanwhile, the intelligence in life is declared by the wise to be the sole, determining intelligence. Gradual transformation of man’s understanding that this is so may happen, if it is meant to.
