“Intelligence in life”
Life, through the mind, manifests an intelligent drama of sorts through the art of thinking, speaking and doing to entertain man, illusory though he and the drama is.
The world is an artistic drama and not anything substantially real. Every art is connected to each other. Walking, running, working, painting, dancing, singing, playing, natural bodily functions, procreation, religious, spiritual and scientific activity etc., are interconnected and are nothing but art in life!
There is no separation between each of them. There is no separation because there are no separate acts existing in life. Enjoy this art in life; admire this art and not just the art, which is found in galleries, exhibitions or museums.
Admire the art that life exhibits every moment: the exhibition could be over any moment. This deep understanding and admiration of life’s art in every moment will leave you eternal as the art itself.
Wisdom reveals that every moment by itself is an art manifested by the intelligence in life. Wisdom reveals that the art within the moment renews itself by the intelligence in life.
Wisdom reveals that the art within every moment is creative art by the intelligence in life. Wisdom reveals that the art within every moment is not made by man or woman. The art is manifested by the intelligence in life.
Wisdom reveals that the creative art within every moment is movement. When creative art of movement in the moment makes you believe that you have made a particular act, you and others believe that you did that particular act.
When creative art of movement in the moment makes you believe that you have not made a particular act, you and others believe that you did not do that particular act.
When creative art of movement in the moment in your life is not approved by others as an act that should be done by you, you will get blamed for the creative art of movement by the intelligence in life over which you have no control.
When you have become art by the intelligence in life, you become enlightened. Enlightenment is total art when you realise the inability of the mind to understand deeply the creative art of movement in life.
Therefore, the saying ‘art is anything and everything’ is true, because life is the artist which is ‘Anything and Everything!’
Man and woman with wisdom understand that the art of movement in any moment cannot be another art of movement than the art of movement that is present in any particular moment.
The enlightened neither blame anyone for anything they should not do nor praise anyone for what they do because they understand that man does not do anything and neither does life do any act.
The enlightened realise that the intelligence in life manifests an art which is just movement in every moment.

In the mind of man, this article is a beautiful tapestry of life woven by the intelligence of its writer, albeit illusory. In wisdom, it is a beautiful tapestry of life woven by the intelligence of life through Dr Shankar. Every man and woman who comes to read this revelation from the wise may come to appreciate life’s patience and compassion in manifesting such an illusory drama in every moment. It is for every man and woman as their own path towards realisation unfolds. Even the blame-game, albeit illusory, in which man indulges so forcefully, eventually yields to this unfolding at the precise moment.
