It's falsely considered the apotheosis of humanity.
The mind is good... but not as good as it is believed.
It doesn't give us the truth but a portion of it and we know that "where there's a lot of mind there's stupidity".
Why is that? Because the ego is at the level of the mind and because it gives the illusion that it offers the truth.
Through meditation or even through the usual creative act of a scholar, artist or manager or anyone else we aim, even without knowing it, to place ourselves above the mind to contact higher and more complex aspects than thoughts.
The mind is only wonderful if it is an instrument of the soul."
