Mercury is our left-brain, analytical nature, which allows us to reason,
and also to formulate language. Mercury is also experienced as
our intellect, that which distinguishes this from that.
It is organizing power, creative intelligence, detail orientation;
that aspect of personality which has the capacity to stand back,
watch and observe the play of life. It is the tool through which
we make decisions and form judgments.
The Doorway of the Intellect and Intellectual Discernment
Gyan Yoga is the doorway of the intellect. The intellect is different
from the mind, though the two are related. The intellect is the
discriminative aspect of mind which chooses, makes distinctions,
directs our attention and focus, where we put our attention.
