An inquiry on the dimensions of spiritual intelligence

Ajit Singh Negi and Dr. Ashu Khanna


Spiritual intelligence is a higher dimension of intelligence that activates the qualities and capabilities of the authentic self (or the soul), in the form of wisdom, compassion, integrity, joy, love, creativity, and peace. Spiritual intelligence results in a sense of deeper meaning and purpose, combined with improvements in a wide range of important life skills and work skills. Spirituality is to 'know' who you are and Spiritual Intelligence is to 'realize' who you are and to live life in that awareness. You have always been who you are and, in truth, you can never be other than who you are, but it requires 'realization' i.e. that moment when you 'see it', when you 'get it' and then you 'be it'. This Research paper is an Inquiry on the Dimensions of Spiritual Intelligence. Cindy Wigglesworth defines spiritual intelligence as "the ability to act with wisdom and compassion, while maintaining inner and outer peace, regardless of the circumstances."
