    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).
