Animals have mind, but not intellect. Since we evolved from the animal kingdom, we inherited our animal past, but with additions.
We now possess animal intellect, an animal mind that can reason. We will only possess a human, Christic mind by entering initiation and creating a solar mental body.
For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
