Quote for the week.

Maharishi Speaks to Students and Educators

Main Points from
Maharishi's Lecture of 20 August 1971
Humboldt, California, USA

‘The field of pure Creative Intelligence—Transcendental Consciousness—is the basis of all knowledge because it is the source of thought.

‘The rising of a thought indicates the existence of a reservoir of intelligence and energy. Energy is responsible for the movement of an impulse of thought, and intelligence is responsible for its direction. This is why we say that the source of thought is the reservoir of Creative Intelligence.

‘The field of Being, the field of pure existence, is the source of all Creative Intelligence, which manifests itself in all the different forms and phenomena in creation.

‘The absolute nature of Creative Intelligence lies in the eternal, non-changing field of existence; and when it starts to create, this is the expression of its relative nature.

‘All streams of life flow towards the ocean of Creative Intelligence, where they merge and find fulfilment: The process of evolution culminates in the absolute value of Creative Intelligence.

‘By opening oneself to the absolute state of Creative Intelligence, one locates the source and goal of all streams of all life, of all activity, knowledge, and of all disciplines. This common basis of all disciplines is the basis for interdisciplinary studies.

‘Once our awareness is open to the absolute field of Creative Intelligence, from which spring all the streams of creativity in life, we can sit at the central switchboard of creation and handle the relative values of life for our benefit.’

—Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
