I think that these reflections are wonderful and so richly full of
information that it is almost unbearable to see so many ideas at once and be
unable spend hours with each one. I find myself literally blown away, in a
good sense. I think that Intellect is a very good term for the true self
and equivalent to Atma, the perfected intellect.
One has the intellect as trained by the culture. One has the principled
anti-intellectualism of the healthy adolescent who intuites the deep need to
think for oneself. One then has the has the transfigured Intellect in a
direct relationship to the Will. One then has the integrating effect of
Love on the transfigured Intellect and lastly the Perfected Intellect, the
product of the Will and It's operation: Love.
Idealism and Devotion
I hope I'm not oversimplifying but clarifying.
