Ego is an extension of knowledge, only applied to a specific state. Ego is the understanding of the self, and the seeking of self-betterment, and the
Ego is illusion, its a false mask that brings about all the problems of the world today; selfishness, greed, power mongers, war mongers, rapes,
murders, fights, corruption.
This is all a side effect of having an ego. The reality is there is only God, only Oneness. We were tricked into putting on this ego which equals the
illusion of separation from each other and God.
A true understanding of the self is that there is no ego, no self. Then you are free and back in the garden of edan state.
Self-betterment and perseverance are of the ego, fighting, scratching, clawing for the aformentioned states. With No ego, this state is complete and
utter being, resting, trust of God. The ulimate letting go and living God's will.
Jesus said I and the father are one. Then he later wishes that everyone will have the same Oneness that he and the father have. Thats real talk
because there are people out there that have this Oneness permanently. A few on ATS have glimpsed this as have I.
Oneness is real. Everything else is illusion; separation, ego, this and that. There is only 1. That was Garden of Edan.
I promise you this; If you could even glimpse for 1 second the state of no ego, you would spend the rest of your life doing whatever it takes to be
without ego permanently.
