“It is a phenomenon that bypasses the individual self, or ego. The capacity to finesse genius can be learned, though often only through painful surrender. When the phoenix of genius arises out of the ashes of despair after a fruitless struggle with the unsolvable. Out of defeat comes victory; out of failure, success; and out of humbling, true self
– David R. Hawkins from the book Power vs Force
Revealing Life’s Greater truths: As we evolve along the path called life I feel we must bring into our awareness my perceived truth (presenting the opportunity that may it serve as that for you perhaps as well) surrounding what it means to be considered a “Genius”. May it be more helpful to see genius as simply an extraordinary high degree of savvy in a given area of human activity.
Let us remember that IQ is merely a measure of academic capacity for logically comprehending symbols and words. It is within a gross understanding that the term “genius” is confused with having a high IQ. This misconception regarding IQ has arisen from the fact that many celebrated geniuses in the fields of mathematics and physics indeed did have high IQs however, in those fields IQ is necessary to comprehend the work is a prerequisite.
Genius can be more accurately identified by perseverance, courage, concentration, enormous drive, and absolute integrity. The following are also random genius traits as well;
- The genius is frequently inspired to intense activity by insights beyond our understanding.
- Values life and sees the intrinsic worth of all it’s expressions
- Often notoriously interpreted as unconventionality or eccentricity.
- Life has a different meaning to them; they present a different perspective on reality
- Live quiet lives and only reluctantly come forth when there is a cause that must be supported.
- Many have never had formal higher education
That which supports life is supported by life: survival is thus effortless, and giving and receiving are one and the same thing. Naïveté, which truly for the genius, is the basis of non-materiality is a radical understanding of the nature of the universe itself.
Until one acknowledges the genius within oneself, one will have great difficulty recognizing it in others.
Do what you like to do best, and do it to the very best of your ability.
May you geniuses live in absolute truth and total freedom!
