What is God’s Fundamental Quality?
Sadhguru urges us to pay attention to any piece of creation, and see that the fundamental quality of the source of creation is intelligence.
Sadhguru: What you consider as divine, what you consider as God is essentially that which is the source of creation, isn't it? If you pay little attention to the creation, whether to a flower or a leaf or an ant, if you just pay enough attention to the ant – I am sure you have not, because they have no orthopedic issues – but if you pay enough attention to a simple ant, it is such a phenomenal mechanism. You can't find another machine like that. The efficiency with which it moves with those eight legs is an incredible thing.
So if you look at any piece of creation, one thing that it smacks of is intelligence of the highest kind, isn't it? Why is it nobody said, ‘God is intelligence’? People are saying ‘God is love, God is this, God is that’ all these things we are capable of. An intelligence beyond ourselves is what our problem is, isn't it? Yes or no? Even a dog is very loving. Not just God; we don't know about God, but dogs are very loving, aren’t they? Yes or no? We are giving all the wrong qualities. If you pay attention to the creation, you will see, whatever is the source of creation – it’s intelligence is unbeatable, isn't it? Why is it that nobody ever said, ‘God is intelligence?’ Unfortunate, isn't it?
