The Biggest Sign of Intelligence

I personally believe that the biggest indicator of an intelligent person is Awareness.

So what do I mean by that?

Awareness and consciousness go hand in hand. I guess another term that could be used is “Woke.”

Believe it or not, about 95% of the things you do on a daily basis come from your subconscious. This means you are not really aware of the things you are doing, you’re pretty much just on autopilot.

The things you do come from past conditioning and habits you have created over the years.

Small habits eventually turn in to your lifestyle which then proceeds to turn in to your character.

All of us are controlled by our subconscious mind, but those who are aware of their actions tend to be a lot more intelligent.

When you are aware, your subconscious actions turn in to conscious actions. Therefore you can choose what you want to do. You are no longer on autopilot and you can continuously choose the best option in which will help you create your ideal life.

When one is unconscious they are just drifting through life and doing what they were taught or just doing what everyone else does. You just become another sheep and you will be easily manipulated and will no longer think for yourself.

How to Become More Aware

Some people are just born with more awareness. But this is something you can also acquire and build upon.

It’s all about being present. The present moment is all that exists. When you are in the present moment you are on the frequency of life and the universe. You are constantly aware of all your doings and can select which thoughts and actions you want to proceed with and act upon.

The best way to become more aware and conscious is meditation.

We tend to live inside of our heads and create all of these problems that don’t actually exist. So many people are trapped inside their minds and this prevents them from truly living.

Meditation helps bring you to the present moment and brings you to the frequency and flow of life. Meditation increases your awareness allowing you to be conscious of all your thoughts and decisions.

There are also two books I highly recommend that will help you live in the present moment and ultimately increase your awareness and intelligence.

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and Be Here Now by Ram Dass are two books that ultimately woke me up and they have helped me tremendously over the years.

So if you want to escape your mind and take control of your life start meditating today and check out those two books.

I wish you the best luck in your future endeavors.
