Intelligence vs Intellectuality

To be intellectual is to be phony; it is pretending intelligence. It is not real because it is not yours, it is borrowed.

Intelligence is the growth of inner consciousness. It has nothing to do with knowledge, it has something to do with meditativeness. An intelligent person does not function out of his past experience; he functions in the present. He does not react, he responds. Hence he is always unpredictable; one can never be certain what he is going to do.
