To meditate, you must transcend the intellect

If you are unable to meditate because your mind is chattering, just feel that you are a little stupid and then you will be able to sink deep into meditation. Your intellect is a small portion of your total consciousness. If you are stuck in the intellect, you miss a great deal. Happiness is when you transcend the intellect. In awe or in feeling stupid, you transcend the intellect.
