PURPOSE: To present fresh ideas for using the timeless wisdom of Quintessential Intelligence to create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
DEFINITION: Quintessential Intelligence (QI, pronounced chi) is the life force of the universe. This deeper level of knowledge beneath the surface of our intellect flows from our hearts awaiting our discovery. Daniel Goleman’s book Emotional Intelligence (EQ) greatly broadened our thinking about IQ. QI takes EQ and IQ into greater dimensions.
For many people Quintessential Intelligence is God. For some it is Spirit, Higher Self, or Supreme Being. And, for others it just is. By embracing our common heritage, Quintessential Intelligence is a unifying concept providing a big tent under which we can all live harmoniously.
Like oxygen and sunshine, Quintessential Intelligence is so natural we barely recognize its presence. Yet, it is the power source that motivates us to overcome hardship, pain, inequality, and intolerance. QI is the essence of whole health and vitality, and so much more.
Quintessential Intelligence directs us to what really matters. It is a powerful desire for truth, a call for freedom, a cry for peace, and a beacon for love. QI is what we need to make a positive difference in our own lives and in the lives of others. It is the counter-movement voice against making things such as art, beauty, science and most of all our humanism into commodities.
The tools of QI have been an integral part of human progress. When QI’s reverence for all life infuses our thinking, institutions such as religion, politics, medicine, education and technology, become the pillars of constructive evolution.
With QI’s vibrancy of joy and well being, life becomes an art form of authentic expression. The challenge in reclaiming QI’s resources is remaining vigilant in breaking free from both inner and outer barriers
