SQ by Danah Zohar & Ian Marshall:
“By SQ [spiritual intelligence] I mean the intelligence with which we address and solve problems of meaning and value [to that I add: “spiritual wisdom: the wisdom to know when ‘to go there’ and when, ‘Don’t!'”], the intelligence with which we can place our actions and our lives in a wider, richer, meaning-giving context, the intelligence with which we can assess that one course of action or one life-path is more meaningful than another. SQ is the necessary foundation for the effective functioning of both IQ and EQ. It is our ultimate intelligence. [And it lacks the wisdom, “not to go there” or “not to do that!!”]
Does it matter. Nietzsche says it doesn’t. Extinction agrees with Nietzsche. Meaning and value are worthless.
Wisdom, spiritual, or otherwise, is the “greater part of valor.” It is the one sense saying, “Enough!”
We can live without it. We can live better for retracing our steps, for stepping out of that “intelligence trap.” But if we don’t have intelligence such as SQ, they’re is no meaning in life, and we suffer a stupor of tyranny, a tyranny of imbecility that dictates, that meaning is “meaningless,” and life is “worthless.”
You worship gods of destruction, lacking context; or God in context, with worshippers that don’t place God’s context in human perspective for human survival, whom are not able to continue to worship “God of goodness, God of greatness” and to whom performing, in our own self-interest, and selfish altruism, cannot include great acts, escaping mediocrity, escape group suicide–stop worshipping a God of destruction, worship the Unity of God for goodness, but also greatness!!
Even if it’s ordinary greatness, it measures up–it’s what’s needed against everyday terribleness. Foster, nourish it, let any form of greatness grow and balance and compensate for something well done with other things in goodness and badness–but avoid terribleness, and fight terribleness with greatness for balance.
