Don't Overestimate the Power of the Intellect

Is your Intellect a powerful servant or dictator. The intellect - the ability to conceptualize, reason, analyze, label, speak and write, apply logic, tell stories - can be either.
If you let your intellect be the ultimate authority, thinking that it is the real you, you are not using the power of the intellect to its fullest potential. If you let it, the intellect will minimize the importance of feelings and intuition. You may use the intellect to avoid unpleasant emotions, attempt to escape uncertainty, to be in control or to manipulate others.
