intelligence

A Quote by James Hillman on soul, intelligence, fate, myth, tragedy, imagination, and character

It helps to regard soul as an active intelligence, forming and plotting each person’s fate. Translators use “plot” to render the ancient Greek word mythos in English. The plots that entangle our souls and draw forth our characters are the great myths. That is why we need a sense of myth and knowledge of different myths to gain insight into our epic struggles, our misalliances, and our tragedies. Myths show the imaginative structures inside our messes, and our human characters can locate themselves against the background of the characters of myth.

A Quote by Jack Ricchiuto on intelligence, gratitutde, problems, solutions, and future

There is a mythology that solving problems today will reduce the number of total problems in our world tomorrow. The reality is that the universe promises to deliver more. Nature resists a vacuum. We always want more than what we have and the gaps between dreams and reality represent the problems we strive to solve.

The fact that no amount of problem solving will ever reduce the net number of problems in our world is a fact that does one of three things. It creates the paralysis of resignation; it sends us into a fury of denial trying; or it liberates us to realize that the only way out of the dilemma is through an honest commitment to an appreciative focus. Once again, gratitude is the highest intelligence.
