I kept journals for 20+ years and have been amazed when I read back through them. Things I was still dealing with I'd found the answer to many years ago. Our minds play games with us, and it's difficult to dicipher when a thought is new to us and when it's a sign we're going in circles (I like to believe they're spirals upward and onward).

We know more than we think we do. Mundane life just complicates it, yet idle time does as much (time to think too much).

No, running from it protects it. Facing it destroys it. What is happening here is that it is trying to survive the onslaught and using every trick it has.


Why do you refer to your 'ego' as though it is a seperate entity with a will of it's own?

Haha. You've never met an ego?

I suppose it's convenient in light of the tone of the one to whom I responded. It tends to have that quality like personal demons.

Well, it's always good to try and design your life and way of thinking to a more positive state.

However, maybe the problem is that you are too focused on metaphysical and "spiritual" practices. Have you considered that these things aren't even real?


it's as good as real.


Escaping the reality of life on earth




Running from your ego may destroy you rather than help anyone.

Sounds like another method of escaping the reality of life on earth.

I think it's wiser to keep in an even balance. Too much ego and you're harming others, too little ego and you're harming yourself. Everything in moderation

Do you really think so? What is the largest part of the reality? A quick mental survey suggests it's no longer our basic battle with nature but with each other. I prefer to serve as a catalyst to expunge that aspect of this reality.

So, if that is "escape", so mote it be. I won't abide the circle. And if I could, I would be more than willing to provide to you a planet on which you can continue things as they are.

If you're not capable of "going there" there is little to no willful decision being made in maintaining balance. Only if you are capable of the full range of possibility can you truely decide where on the scale you shall be.

I sense a possible admission of a sense of futility. Could be wrong.

Distinction without a difference.
