Intelligence Beyond Thought – Dada Gavand


Is one ever disturbed at seeing this self-centered, cunning, delusive and disorderly mechanism inside, called mind? How is it that one’s honesty does not revolt at this fact about oneself?


Armed with the spirit of benevolent rebellion, one will be able to dispel the allure and dark shadow of the self-centered mind. Only by standing up courageously to one’s enslavement will one discover the freedom – the divinity within. A spirit of adventure is absolutely indispensable to discover one’s own inner flame.


Such a revolt is free from any reaction. Instead there is pondering, a search, a way of looking within, in silence. For in-depth looking within, the state of aloneness is necessary. Aloneness is the state of absolute freedom from all the contaminants created by the world at large, including one’s own conditioning. Such freedom is the gate to enter this inner region – one’s own uncontaminated being.


This turn towards inwardness brings the quality of psychological solitude, where the activity and busy-ness of living slow down to create an interval, a gap, in which to feel and experience the inner reality.

Then, mysteriously, the mind energy begins to fall back upon itself. This is the U-turn of life – to look back at itself. In this benevolent revolt, with a sense of urgency, mind energy begins to undergo a change. One begins to become eternally aware, intensely watchful, like a hawk. All-around passionate vigilance, within and without, becomes the way of living.


When awareness begins to work from inside, it causes total perception. This integrated awareness is free of personality, and so of fragmentation. It then assumes all-around total perception, which gives the experience of the truth of that moment.


When the attentive awareness begins to work within, from moment to moment, observing each thought as it enters, it becomes possible to slow down and finally dissolve thought, thus releasing the energy that thought is using.


This conversion of thought into energy is the magic key. Released mind energy in turn brings heightened sensitivity and deeper watchfulness. Such intense vibrant innerness invites the touch of the spirit, which is Life energy itself. The impersonal intelligence beyond thought is what awaits a human being. Discovering it is the quest, the true challenge, the ultimate revolution.



With humanity on the brink, mankind is now facing its greatest challenge,. Sensitive and intelligent people are recognizing the fact that everybody is adding his bit to the world problems. Now their obligation is to become part of the solution. Only the individual, acting and inquiring alone, within himself, can take up this challenge. Each one must explore within, with utmost urgency and honesty, to invite the radical revolution in this age-old mind.


Therein alone lies the hope for mankind. The mindless mind freed from its fetters, will transform our perception, way of living, and relationships. The human being will rise above individuality and nationality, to embrace the law of universality. Only through total upheaval and revolt, with radical revolution of mind, can one discover this great fulfilment – with peace, love and the benevolence of life.


Universal human beings will live by the intelligence beyond thought, manifested in lives of creativity and intuitive spontaneity. This is the birthright of every human being on the earth, the mystery which the Eternal is offering.


Let that Life lead you on…

With Love

  1. you offer insights to a process of introspection and connection with the Spirit….but solitude is not the only WAY

    we connect with each other and the WORLDS around us

    we observe and see what is happening

    we DESIRE CHANGE therefore we work together to bring about the changes we want…we live life to the full and encourage as
    many others to do the same

    we create LOVE and happiness together

    we generate wealth and solutions to world crises by facing them

    with the Spirit
