Open intelligence is not a state to get into that is separate from thought. The point of gaining confidence in open intelligence is to simply remain as open intelligence for short moments repeated many times until it becomes automatic. That’s the only instruction. Short moments repeatedly become continuous. What that means on a practical sense is that the first day there might be a few moments of open intelligence and you might ask, “Well, what is open intelligence?” Open intelligence is simply that which isn’t distracted by thinking. Open intelligence is the source of all thinking that isn’t distracted by any of the thinking.
