In this era of a rapid increase in human intelligence and capacity to use the mind we run the risk of overemphasis on intellectualism. ''The mind is the slayer of the Real'' is a well-known reflection of an inherent danger.

In this book ''From Intellect to Intuition'', development of the intellect, while necessary, is shown as a means to an end and one step on the way to a fully awakened and active mental body.

Between the intellect and the intuition a gap exists until it has been consciously bridged through meditation. Meditation is sometimes defined as ''thinking in the heart'', correct meditation proceeds only when the heart and mind function together in unison. To touch the intuition, therefore, this blending of heart and mind is a necessity. Right use of the mind in meditation opens consciousness to the beauty, truth and goodness of the soul, through the five stages of concentation-meditation-contemplation-illumination-inspiration. These five stages lead to union with the soul - the ''son of mind'' - and direct knowledge of divinty creating an instrument of intelligence for the soul to use in daily life.
