EGO IS OUR MOST USEFUL *ENEMY*
Ego is not *a rose by any other name.*
Psychology has its own definition/understanding of the ego – something in our personality that needs to be cancelled out or shrunk, at the very least, no matter what or how.
Religion also has its specific understanding of the ego – one that equally maligns it.
In reality, Ego and Karma are the only tools we have, the only tools we can use towards a cleansing of the channel that leads to Soul.
Every time we react in a way that spells out Not now, Too tired, Can’t be bothered, Go away, You’re stupid, What’s WRONG with you! – regardless of with whom we are engaging, we feed into that *low* end.
Reality is that Soul constantly beams at us messages of Best Practice, but either we are unable to *get* them or we fail to understand them because Ego doesn’t reflect them back clearly for Mind to snatch in mid air and decode for us – or we DO understand them well enough but we ACTIVELY choose to sidestep Best Practice.
Again, what we end up with is this great beam of pure energy reflected fuzzily though tantalizingly by a pitted mirror – the *low* end* of our ego and so … the ongoing conundrum is always along the lines of ‘What’s a good person to do, huh?’
THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH WE CAN DO!
All of us alive today can compare ourselves with the planet Earth.
The Law of Attraction of Earth – gravity – symbolizes the reality that ALL things come from Above-Below.
Everyone understands that in order to ascend anything and anywhere, any object or body needs to be propelled upward by some sort of energy. Not even birds can fly through sheer will.
Reality is that only the mightiest of acceleration can propel a mass of steel through the sound barrier – all the way to the moon – and beyond the pull of gravity.
For us, humans, this mighty elevation can only be done by connecting Mind to Soul via responses made through the statics of Ego.
Only Soul has the right energy. She has an energy that I like to compare to that of a drag racing car and its nitro propulsion that yields around 8000 horsepower. This propulsion, however, cannot be measured accurately because there are no dynometers strong enough to measure such an extreme power – but it, too, needs to be balanced.
Ego’s energy, like fossil fuel, is simply unable to do more than transmit from Soul to Mind.
Any attempt to bypass Soul and attempt a so-called spiritual ascension simply propelled by the creative powers of the Brain, visualization and an ecstatic faith, can be compared to the elevation of a weather balloon.
It will rise but will not enter the spiritual realm and will bring us down in a big SPLAT – imagine Nitro into a 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder car engine!
As an aside, because we are inseparable from each other and inseparable from the whole of the cosmos, it is helpful to see a link between massive natural forces and our *Ego* eruptions.
What if we were subjected to the same rules as planet Earth but in reverse?
Here’s how it can be explained: Earth supplies us with air and we have no choice whether we breathe or not – our lungs insist on breathing for us.
Earth supplies us with a range of natural food products without which we neither function nor grow.
Earth supplies us with solid ground on which to stand and we are bound to it by gravity.
Earth is surrounded by a huge magnetic field and we cannot but react magnetically to every aspect of it in our days. We react magnetically to fauna, flora and to minerals, just as we react emotionally, mentally, spiritually and philosophically. Our attraction to each other is magnetic.
All aspects of our interactions through body and thought are within the boundaries of our Ego – of our energy field – and cannot pass into timelessness. Our thoughts do not pass into the 4th Dimension.
And just as the planets above, we are swept into the processes of birth, growth and death. No one can sidestep any of these. We are obliged to go through each of them, be it willingly or unwillingly.
The only stage that we can control to some degree by bringing it forward is death.
