The conscious leader practices intelligence.

He observes that the application of intellect without heart can lead to stupid or downright insane results. His best example is how technology has been used to kill people in vast numbers and strip the earth of its nutrients and fuels. Another is when people who claim to be intelligent and educated profess to understand theories of behaviour that they’ve read about in books, then fail to observe the impact of their own actions on themselves and others.

The conscious leader is with Krishnamurti, who said: “Training the intellect does not result in intelligence. Rather, intelligence comes into being when one acts in perfect harmony, both intellectually and emotionally.”

The conscious leader sees that intelligence is more than knowledge acquired through books and applied mechanically for the sake of results, while the heart is left at home, and taken out for a ride on Sunday.

The conscious leader seeks to express his humanity and his heart through his knowledge.
