Doctrine and Covenants 130:18-19 (revealed scripture to Joseph Smith, and part of the canon of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) says:
Whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection. And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come.
Sometimes I enjoy some of my own meditation time with a good book or film, but often I find myself feeling much more intellectually lifted after having spent time with people I respect that enjoy some good back-and-forth sharing.
This post is a shout out to all of my family and friends that help me to expand my mind and heart. I think you know who you are. You are smart like that.
