Alphabet soup for the soul – “I”

I is for Infinite Intelligence

I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.

-Thomas Edison-

There is an infinite intelligence that allows our bodies to breathe while we sleep. It also allows our bodies to repair and regenerate while we sleep.

This same intelligence allows blood to travel through us covering 19,000 km or 12,000 miles a day.

It allows a human heart to beat 100,000 times daily. It allows the lungs to take around 20,000 breaths a day. The most amazing part is that we don’t even notice any of this is happening.

The complexity of the body although empirical is in a realm that is still unfathomable for most people. This is due to infinite intelligence.

Whether you choose to call it God, Universe or Source, they are all the same thing, infinite intelligence.

It defies thought and understanding to grasp the full significance of the intricate nature of the human body. It is also completely perfect and designed to be that way.

This infinite intelligence is not just in our bodies but is everywhere we look as well.

All the drops of water that make up an Ocean and that then force the waves to roll in and out depending on which way the earth is facing and the pull of the moon.

The stars and planets that are suspended in the sky and waiting for us to explore.

The mass migration of birds in the winter, heading south for warmer destinations closer to the equator. How is it that a bird can know how to get from Boston to Boca Raton?

This same intelligence also allows a bear to hibernate for months while losing half its body fat but no muscle. Dropping the Bear’s heart rate from 50 bpm down to 10 bpm, and dropping their body temperature from 38 degrees down to 33 degrees. This same intelligence allows a bear to go months without drinking, urinating or defecating.

A bamboo tree grows underground without sunlight for 4 years and is not visible above ground until the 5th year. At that point, it breaks through and then shoots up 60-80 ft in a couple of months. That could not happen without infinite intelligence.

The rain that turns to snow at a certain temperature and the revelation that every single snowflake is uniquely different than its counterpart.

The beautiful colors of fall foliage or the grass that exactly like fingernails will grow faster the more you cut it.

A field full of dandelions that all look the same until you get a closeup and realize that like a snowflake every single one is different.

All around us are the designs of infinite intelligence at work and most of us don’t even think about it for even a second during our entire lives.

  1. Intelligence assumes that something is aware it is doing all these things. I lean toward god would not know that it is god. Like you body and don’t know how it is done, the universe has no idea how moss grows on rocks or mold grows on bread. Nothing knows, just does. Self governing organisms on organisms.
    Great post as usual.

  2. Oh yes..I love this subject and I see it and believe in it…my poetry speaks of it many times. How can all of this, that you describe, come about..”just because”? randomly, without plan, be so planned? It can’t. There is a superior Intelligence at work here. from the minimal, to the maximum. I wrote a poem, many years ago, about one such incident…one in countless, but one, I stopped to write down. I hope you enjoy it:) I enjoyed your post, very much.
