In the August Ah-Man Newsletter, I began a discussion of Honoring Our Intelligence, focusing on the difference between Intellectual comprehension and Intuitive comprehension. This month in the Ah-Man Blog, I’ll continue the discussion.
One of my favorite movies is Forrest Gump. Each time I see it, I still cry like a baby. And when we speak of intelligence I can’t help but think of the phrase from Forrest Gump that really stumped me.
It’s what his Momma told him over and over, “Stupid is as stupid does.” Not being from the south I had never heard of that saying, but boy did it grow on me.
I was never a kid who received high marks in school and the low self-esteem I had earlier in life didn’t help. But this phrase helped me connect some dots in my life.
Even intellectual intelligence isn’t always about being smart, or being the first one with the answer. You could be slow to come about, but stupidity is based more on your actions then the speed at which you come about.
Intuitive Intelligence is when we know nothing is stupid, it just is.
