    Good day dear brother, is pure intellect so really pure? Consider the breakdown of the word thus; Ignoring-Numinosity-Truth-Eludes-Leaving-Little-Elemental-Clumps-Truth.=INTELLECT! Would you consider unconditional love of the itellect or of the spirit?

    warmest regards Michael.
    I know nothing,and that is ALL.

    Intellect is composite of stability, truth, interest, yoga, mighty powers, still it is the gist of these qualities, which are all acquired, hence relating only to ephemeral world, i.e., transitory! Whereas love is the reflection of bliss which is an attribute of spirit (3attributes of spirit=Existence (Being)-Awareness-Bliss)
    Pleasure is of body&senses
    Joy/Happiness of mental state (intellect)
    Love(bliss) of casual state (spirit)
    Hope the above explains your query, Brother!

    Consciousness
    The way we canít control the nature, same way, we canít control our mind. By controlling nature we would assume the power of its creation, which is unimaginable. The very process of nature lies in its own unique faculty of consciousness. Like it, the process of life on earth planet is based on consciousness. Whole existence, including living beings, is conscious and our existence is also conscious. Mind is nothing else but the faculty of consciousness by which we are able to observe our existence and that of the world.

    Old Habits Die Hard.
    It is very easy to shed old habits and substitute with fresh ones. Our mind has a glaring weakness and we must exploit it to our benefit. It has an exasperating nature of repetition. It does not easily forego old associations and goes again and again to a familiar spot, person or a favorite dish. It’s this nature, which creates a crop of habits in us. Here a little bit of auto-suggestion can also help us. We can willfully lead it to its nature of repetition but now we have substituted new spots, persons and dishes. Instead of a brothel, we lead it to religious places; instead of bad company, we have substituted the company of wise persons; and in place of non-veg we are feeding it a vegetarian food. Initially, it would not like this change but repeated ‘visits’ to new changes and by constant reminder before going to sleep, would wear it round and it would compromise to new changes and adopt them as new habits. The best way is to conduct a daily session of ‘dead posture’ (savaasna) of one hour duration, during the evening time. But this should be a regular practice and always undertaken at the same time and place.
    After being free from day’s routine, lie on a hard bed and relax your body, exactly like a dead body. Extend your arms and legs sideways and start slow breathing. While relaxing, focus your mind in the centre of the forehead; just above the center of the eye brows, slightly towards the right eye brow. After keeping your body inert for twenty minutes, start feeding your mind the new changes or habits, you want it to adopt. Always take only one subject during the session, and repeat that again and again. Initially, the mind revolts, but don’t lose heart, start with positive discrimination and feed the mind the benefits, the new change would bring into your life. Continue this for another eighteen minutes and then stop. Lie for another twelve minutes then revive your body firstly by d-concentrating the mind from your forehead. Bring slow movements to your limbs. Take forceful breaths and lie on your right side. After a minute sit cross legged for some time and open your yes. Continue this practice for some days and you would be surprised about the results. Your life pattern would be changed markedly. The idea is to give some rest to the mind as we do with the body (during sleep).

    Realms Beyond
    It is not possible to achieve the state of pure-intellect without proper guidance from the conscience. Intelligence on its own cannot evaluate its authenticity Moreover, each aspect of mind gets elevated to the next higher one after attaining perfection with activated consciousness of the upper state. In other words the extension of thought process (consciousness) is possible only when the present store of data in memory chambers is fully activated and with their help latent memory-cells are made conscious too. Similarly, with the assistance of our acquired knowledge we discover/invent new areas in the field of science and widen our scope of knowledge. Thus, either in the field of mind's extension or material progression, it is the latent knowledge that opens up the realms beyond.

    A person should have normal reactions to normal situations. One should be able to rejoice at the happiness of others, weep in sorrows of others, share pleasure or pain with others. Share their agonies and be ecstatic in their musical renditions. Appreciate their tastes and ignore their foul smells. Give good vibrations in spite of bad one’s coming to us. In nut-shell, we must share in their grief and joy and forget their deficiencies. It is the way for enriching our emotional treasure, sensitivities and energy channels stretched to the optimum levels, thereby enlivening pleasure fields which would next lead us to joy state.

    The essence of positive tendencies is conscience.
    Every aspect has its inherent qualities of good and bad. Like brightness of a day and darkness of a night. We know, it is because of the position of earth towards the sun resulting in distinction of day or night. But going beyond the sphere of the earth, there exists only brightness. So as long as we are in the grip of our senses, we have the sense of good or bad, but when dawn of knowledge awakens within us, we go beyond the realm of the mind; good and bad aspects lose their bearing. Everything appears in its original (normal) form.
    Explaining it in a day to day vocabulary, whatever is done for the benefit of others, without any personal motive attached is good. And that which is done for our selfish motive is bad.

    Normal State
    Waves of civilizations have existed for some time and vanished forever, making no improvement or advance in the journey of mankind. Results are before us, like animals we were in stone-age, bestial we still are in the end of twentieth century. We must remember, how many wars, and conflicts took place during foregone century: How many millions of people were killed in those wars’? If the words, such as mind, conscience, religion intellect, wisdom, should etc., had any effect, would we be so, as we are today? Whatever thought, philosophy we may flout, it is for our leisure and consumption only. We have learnt nothing from them and we will learn nothing in future, human journey began in gross and it will end in gross.
    If we establish in extreme consciousness of objective world or feel it through senses in normal and balanced condition, then we would realise that Nature or its objects are vested with three qualities of Truth (Purity), Happiness (material world), and pleasure (gross/sensual); and it (nature) is made up of particles which are composed of both positive and negative energy. These energy fields of positive/negative are highly susceptible to the type of life we lead and these can also superficially, charge our life style by the implementation of artificial means.
    The three qualities of truth, passion and sloth (Sato, Rajo and Tamo) are equally vested in nature and its objects. But energy charge in objects can increase or decrease by outer/inner influences. Living a balanced normal life, one assumes a quality life of truth (righteousness); around him, positive field expands, but if sensual tendencies take over, negative field expands and one leads a lower life than the normal.
    I mean, if we do not keep our energy fields balanced by keeping our senses in normal conditions without instigating them to extreme heights by artificial means of intoxicants, drugs etc., we are liable to increase our field of negative charge and lead ourselves towards degradation. That is, when positive field increases by artificial means, we are superficially happy. And when negative charge increases, we are living a life of perversion. Artificial happiness and superficial perversion both are not normal states. And if we live in acquired states, these are not a normal.

    Name just one master who mastered any one of the branches of Nature and had duplicated that in totality through the medium of art or science!
    Not even the renowned scientists have completely uncovered the mysteries in their chosen fields. We hardly know a fraction of Nature as yet!
