It is very important to send children to the university to assist in shaping their logic and thinking faculties. Education is very important as well as meditation. Even though meditation can help the children bask in their innocence and simplicity, it is not the only thing they need.
Intellect can be perceived as an obstacle. Nevertheless, intellect can also be perceived as a stepping -stone. "You are walking on a pathway and there is a huge rock lying on the pathway. Now, this is an obstacle, and you may return from there thinking the pathway does not go anywhere farther. But if you climb on the rock, a new pathway is revealed- which is totally on a different level from the previous lower one. A new dimension opens up," (The Book of Children: Supporting Freedom and Intelligence of a New Generation).
If the mind is not developed, a person will return assuming that the rock is an obstacle. If the mind is intelligent, the person will use the rock as a ladder.
Wisdom vs Intelligence
If the intellect is not trained, humans will remain like animals. We would be like wild animals. We would not have any obstacles. But, we would also not have the means to climb up either. Another words, the rock would not be an obstacle nor a ladder.
Intellectual training is very important. The more enriched the training is, the vaster the intellect becomes-and that is very good- "because in the same proportion it is a means to rise to greater heights."
The ignorant one did not have a trained intellect. Even though the scholar's intellect was trained, the scholar could not go beyond it. The wise one's intellect was trained, and he managed to go beyond it.
Logic is means that can be used to destroy life (destructive) or create life (creative). Logic will have to be sharpened like a sword. Then, a person will have the logic (sword) to hurt someone or to save someone's life with a sword- it all depends on his intelligence.
