Mind can never be intelligent--only no mind is intelligent. Only no mind is original and radical. Only no mind is revolutionary--revolution in action.
The mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living--at the minimum. You don't live at the maximum.
Your flame remains very dim. Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises--clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is.
