Those who manage to disintegrate the cadavers of the ego are the ones who obtain enlightened intellection.
Enlightened intellection is the intellect placed under the service of the spirit.
Jesus the Christ has enlightened intellection. He placed his intellect under the service of the spirit.
The great error of materialists consists precisely in believing that the Great Reality needs physical phenomena. Nevertheless, their “reality” after all is a product of their materialistic intellect and not of enlightened intellection.
Both the physical as well as the spiritual are energy. Therefore, the Spirit is just as real as the matter is real.
Matter is as sacred as the Spirit. To comprehend that the material and the spiritual behave in a correlated and dialectical manner will be impossible as long as the materialistic intellect does not become enlightened intellection through the revolution of the dialectic.
