I have been pondering the wording of this theory and it unsettles me...
People talk of Ego so harshly. I understand that you mean we just teach the Ego-Self some manners (props to FeatherWinger for that). What confuses me, is the application of this theory into everyday, practical life? I'm sure if I searched deep enough I'd find the answers and that is my goal for the week :)
I'm interested to hear your thoughts though?
If we are to piece together the common stories (given by Ra in The Law of One series, Edgar Cayce, and others), then in the beginning was the One (Source/Prime Creator/etc.) who is a conscious energy, and all other things are merely a split-off of the One's energy or the energy of one of Its co-creator children. The One's simple command to his children was "Go out and create, and bring all things back to me". Now, the first groups of beings created all knew that they were one with the Creator, because they had no "veil" between their conscious and subconscious mind. Because of this, there was little to no impetus for evolution of consciousness and spirit, so things were quite stagnant and boring. Then one group of creators devised the idea of the veil of the ego. The ego is the barrier to your soul--your complete conscious connection with the One--and your barrier to connection with others. The ego is both your friend and your enemy. First, the friction between ego and soul creates your personality. So some level of ego is good in that respect. Now, how to thin the enemy ego? It is basically as you said, to practice manners, really by being "humble". How to be humble? We are told that that is our personal quest and test, so no one else can really help us answer that question. However, being in harmony with others and yourself, that is, being in "allowance", letting them be exactly who they are and letting you be exactly who you are, acknowledging each as playing an important role in the Divine Plan of creation and bringing all back to Source, breaks down the walls between us. And we are all God. We are One. Once we realize this, we begin to overcome duality.
Very well explained. People's rather hurried attack upon the ego is missing the point of pretty much everything.
There is no such thing as enemy in creation. The ego is probably one's greatest friend. Otherwise as those first created beings very quickly discovered, there is little point to creation.
Precisely, or so I believe. In other words, if there were no veil of ego, there might only be souls that are fully connected with Source, and so we might all essentially be of One personality. But it is often said that the Creator wants to experience all possibilities. So the ego is good in how it allows for variety and new adventures, thus the urge to create.
Thanks for the share Rajnish .
I would like to expand a bit on this statement , thanks ;)
Those people who are not governed by God will be ruled by tyrants
in terms of Chakra , if a person does not believe and understand the principles of balance , harmony and oneness and therefore then does not align his chakras with that greater goal , then the chakras themselves will start to align in the opposite way in which there is no God , no higher meaning , no greater goodness , which is then indubitably and inadvertently dominated and controlled by the 3d systems and control techniques of the Illuminaughts .
In the Bhagwad Gita , Lord Krishna says , there are two ways of living without creating imbalance to the higher flow -
1) one is to trust in the inner God and align the self with it and perform all duties and actions according to that ,
2) otherwise inaction is the second best thing to do .
Considering inaction as an impossibilty for majority of humanity , so if one tends to forget that there is a higher cause for the existence of life , they will by the very nature of life and existence tend to align with what the 5 physical senses feel and feedback to the brain , which is basically what the Illuminaughty are counting on , and have designed their power-structures and systems to take advantage of , in keeping humans at a low vibration and low consciousness , and a slow progress as a Planetary community of sentient beings .
You are most welcome , friend :)
It's hilarious they mention the word vitamins in that commercial, because that's just about the only thing that food does NOT have in it. Saturated fat, refined sugar and bovine babyfood is what that food is, in actuality :)
Haha, from time to time I love posting spiritual Einstein quotes to hardliner atheists/materialists in their forums and on Youtube.
They are like: "Einstein said that????!!!! Oh well maybe he was talking about gravity..."
I just gotta laugh at the rationalizations. That's how you catch them pulling the old trick that religious people still enjoy pulling daily.
I really irks unawakened people when they see just how intertwined spirituality and science are.
Esp when the very person they idolize as the father of materialism is also the very person annulling their long held misguided beliefs.
most of the best scientists in the world went to the excuse of intelligent design when they couldnt answer any more questions, and then another comes along and answers those questions and has no need for divinity because they understood what the previous person did not. Albert eninstein like all others resorts to divinity when he has no further answers.
so do we need a better answer than divinity and accepting that we ourselves are creatures capable of divinity ? leave the higher divinity out of it . We ourselves have something called a heart right ? And if Einsteins version is wrong , may I have your version please ?
