Liberate From Ego And Change The World!
Liberation means to set free from imprisonment or bondage. We need Ego for our existence, but we must not be its prisoner.
In The Beginning
We all originated together from the same beginning. Whether we call this beginning God, Great Spirit, One, All, Infinite Consciousness, Big Bang,
Singularity, Holographic Matrix, or simply say "we do not know," regardless, we all originated together from the same source.
We're Made From The Same Thing
Adam and Eve... Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam... we descended from the same mankind, we come from the same gene-pool, we're made of the
same basic proteins, the same elements, and if you go deeper we're even made of the same subatomic particles and the same raw fundamental energy that
comprises and interconnects all of existence.
No Separate Self
Yes, everything is made of this basic energy, and it is this basic energy that connects every thing to every thing; there is no 'separate self.' Not
one single thing can originate, exist, or be sustained 100% alone, on it's own, without using or depending upon something else. Look deeply. All of
the separation is superficial!
Ego is the influence within our reality that creates and perpetuates the illusion of separation among the unified fundamental energy of existence. Ego
is the gift giver of relative and subjective experience. Ego is the dividing and separating force of existence. Ego allows the many to manifest from
the one. Ego allows the infinite pieces of One to perceive a superficial individuality and individual identity.
Ego tugs very strongly on the psyches of conscious sentient beings. In humans, Ego draws psychological influence towards all points of possible
separation because that is Ego's job; to separate. In our minds Ego says, "I am this individual, and here is a huge list of all the reasons that
I am different than you." Skin color, physical appearance, gender, strength, skill, knowledge, intelligence, nationality, home-town, graduating
school, wealth, social status, class, caste, religion, opinion, ideology, political party, entertainment likes, and we even separate ourselves based
on sports teams!
What Lies Beyond Ego?
Anything dealing with identity, individuality, or relativity is rooted from Ego.
Strip away your name, who you think you are, and any superficial labels or titles you give yourself. Now you are a leveled human.
Take away the human perceptions. Sight, hearing, scent, taste, touch, and spatial dimension. Now you are awareness.
Calm all emotions and silence all thoughts. Now you are consciousness.
Tranquil Peace. Infinite expansive void. Free from all superficiality. Formless, Timeless, free from conceptualizations. Here in this state, in this
realm can be found The Watcher... The Self... I Am.
Ego Manifests Infinity
In order for Infinity to exist, each 'separate thing' must be an expression of infinity. No two snowflakes are the same, no two finger prints are
the same, etc. Each and every thing is fundamentally the same as everything else, only appearing to be different. There are no two identical things
containing identical relative-subjective experiences and perspectives. At every glance we should see infinity. It's all supposed to appear
In order for the one to become two, and for the two to become many, the one superficially divided its self infinitely in order to be all, know all,
and for infinity to even exist.
Carpe Diem, And Treasure Each Moment!
Realizing that Ego has given you the special gift of relativity and subjectivity should reveal to you that each moment of your life is a grand
treasure. Every single moment! No one will ever see, hear, smell, taste, touch, feel, or think one single thing exactly as you have experienced it!
Not one single thing occupies the same conscious space as you at the same time to be able to perceive any experience as you have. Something will
always be different.
When you see something, remember that it is only you that saw such details at such an angle from such a relative state. Your experiences no matter how
"insignificant" are a treasure that only YOU possess.
An Ego Understood:
An understood Ego will allow you to transcend the superficial comparisons of your self to others. You will have more peace, confidence, contentment,
and happiness. Why? Because you will not try to be like someone else, you will not try to get what someone else has, and you will not belittle
yourself by thinking others are somehow better than you. Since you know that everything is supposed to be different, you will cherish your Self for
your own differences.
An Imbalanced Ego
Leaning too far on either pole of Ego is unhealthy for us. We must not kill Ego, nor should we be disillusioned by it. We must seek the understanding
of Ego, and gain mindful consciousness of our use of Ego.
If we kill Ego or seek to remove it from our lives, we become detached from our fellow humans. We loose sight of the world. We slumber in the peaceful
cradle of the empty void. We lose our individuality, we lose our passion, and we lose our humanity. Our minds float in La-La Land and we lose the
ability to relate or connect to another person.
If we are controlled by Ego, unmindful of Ego, disillusioned by Ego, or ignorant to it, we cause suffering to ourselves and the rest of existence.
Ego's influence becomes so strong that we actually believe we are completely separate from everything else. We gain superiority complexes, we begin
to judge others harshly, and we gain prejudices. By believing that we are separate, we are prone to becoming apathetic towards war, oppression,
starvation, animal cruelty, animal extinction, etc. When we forget that all is one, we forget to treat existence as ourself. We forget to treat others
as ourselves. Self hurting Self! Religious or nationalistic superiority, racism, hate, violence, rape, war, genocide, economic slavery.... Self
When we forget that we are an infinitely unique expression, we forfeit our uniqueness by trying to be like someone else. When we forget that others
are infinitely unique expressions, we judge them for being different than ourselves.
Don't Be 'Egotistical,' Understand The Ego In Others
If there is no oppression or infringement of free will, we must celebrate diversity, accept and be understanding of others. We must allow others to be
their Self as we wish the freedom to be our Self.
When we live and let live, prejudice ends. Wars cease. We stop looking at differences as threats to ourselves. We stop trying to judge or control
Remembering That Separation Is An Illusion:
When we are at peace with Ego without clinging to superficial separations, we more easily care about others. We help each other. We remember to bring
no suffering to others because they are eternally bound to us.
Others Are Self
When we liberate from Ego, we can understand others as our Self. No one will starve because Self would not allow Self to starve. No one would be
violated because Self would not violate Self. No one would war because Self would not drop bombs on Self.
When we liberate from Ego, we see that the problems of all others are our own problems also.
