Intelligence Manifests Itself by Responsiveness

“Intelligence manifests itself by responsiveness…” (Thomas Troward. 1904) Hmmm, I read this statement, pondered it for a moment, and then read it again, before I came to the realization of how powerful those 5 words are.

All we have to do is look at the progression of Science or Technology and we can see where intelligence has manifested itself by its own responsiveness. For example, electricity has always existed. From the first thought when the planets were forming our solar system and the ether of space was expanding exponentially, electricity existed. Once the human race realized what electricity was and how to use it, by the laws of electricity, it responded to our use of it and how we harnessed it…now not only do we use it to light our homes, but to heat them, cook for our families, and power our gadgets too.

We have countless examples of people who have discovered how to make the intangible…tangible. People who have been the vehicles of invention which have enhanced or changed the way we live tremendously. From Thomas Edison to Steve Jobs, we have people who have been pushing past the idea that precedence is the end all, be all. Let’s understand that if it didn’t work one way, it doesn’t mean we should give up and never try again. Just because it didn’t work for one person, doesn’t mean it won’t work for another. It is our consciousness, our ability to think beyond the limited idea of what has already been created. What does the future hold for the human race when the new thinkers of today do not accept the limited ceiling we have so easily accepted as our defining experience?

We must understand that nothing ever happens by chance or accident. Everything that occurs, in our lives, occurs because we have somehow or other, allowed it happen, or gave it power or permission to show up in our lives. Now before you get bent out of shape, let’s take a look at ways that can happen.

Order is the first cause of the Universe. If we didn’t have order, the planets couldn’t orbit the Sun, they would be bouncing into one another. If we didn’t have order…we wouldn’t have the capability of walking, talking, thinking, driving….you get the idea right? There is order to everything, even when things appear to have no order…they are orderly in their disorder. Even shitty cancer has some form of order. Within the disease, it multiplies and functions in its order. That’s why scientists can study it, understand it, and discover ways to cure it and eventually they will be able to eradicate it. So if something as horrific as cancer has order, then Harmony, Peace, Prosperity, and Love must have order.

We know this. It is so easy to think about and talk about, but somehow when we go to apply it to our lives we get lost between the thought and the action. 

But you need to know…you can do it. You don’t have to accept the limited idea that you have to be miserable or meek to live a noble or spiritual life. It is time someone told you that you are worthy of every moment of wonderfulness that is waiting for you. All you gotta do is accept it!

You are the most amazing thing in this world. Did you hear me? YOU ARE AMAZING! Think about it, every day you wake up, every day you breathe, walk, talk, and blink you are proving a miracle. You are the most miraculous thing in this world. But it doesn’t even stop there, because we actually have something even more miraculous than the physical functions of our bodies, we have thought! We are able to think and reason, we have volition and choice. We have the ability to change our minds, and with that, we have the ability to change our lives.

It is when we choose to live consciously, that we can manifest or “bring forth into our lives” experiences we want. Here, let me explain. Have you ever met someone who never gets pissed off at things? “I fell into the toilet in the middle of the night again, because you didn’t put the seat down!” or “Come on A-HOLE, I gotta get to work and you’re driving like my granny!” We all tend to experience something that we react to negatively, it happens. But then you meet someone who isn’t affected by the same things…and you’re totally blown away at their calmness. 

How can some people be so lucky while the rest of us must suffer? It is nothing more than how they choose to think and relate to their experiences.

Remember, you have volition, you have choice. That’s what so amazing about being who you are; you can choose how you are going to live. If you want to be angry, pissed off, sick, poor, or weak you have the choice to be that way. But if you want to be happy, peaceful, healthy, prosperous, and strong, you must make the choice. It is always in the words you use, the thoughts you think, and the actions you take that define your life. 

Someone upsets you…it is how you react to them that keeps the feelings there. You’re not happy at your job, well, it’s your job. What choice do you have? You can either find the small moments that make it amazing or you can keep focusing on the lack of pay you are getting.
Now try this…humor me…spend the next month, finding all the great things in your life. Even the smallest of wonderfuls will begin to change your view of the world. Every day, think about all the things that went right, give thanks for those moments.

Then you need to be conscious of the words coming out of your mouth. Take notice of the words that follow the powerful statement, “I AM.” If you are saying I am and putting anything limiting and negative behind it, stop and change the words...Stop and change your words and thoughts.

You see wealthy people, praise them, celebrate them, you see happy people smile at them, rejoice in their happiness. There is nothing more worthless than to waste your energy on jealousy. And in the same breath, it’s worthless to fill your heart with guilt. Don’t beat yourself up for not being perfect or slipping into the negative thoughts. Because guess what? Nobody is perfect, we are human and above all else, at least you caught yourself; so let go of the guilt. 

Eventually you’ll begin to recognize when you aren’t coming from that authentic place within you and you’ll automatically correct your thinking. Because when you see the Peace, Joy, Harmony, and Love around you—you will invite it to stay in your life. And when you invite Peace, Joy, Harmony, and Love into your life, you can’t help but experience more and more of it. Then, you will start living beyond any precedence that was set in your life. You will be living the intelligent life you were always meant to live and it will respond to your actions appropriately!
