One should not not judge for then one may have to use one's conscience. One should detach one's self from one's ego so one does not think about the
pain one might have caused, and then feel remorseful, and repentant. One should only do what one's primal instinct tells one. Oh look at the clock,
it's 11:11. One must feel mystified at one's place in the universe of one now.
Hyperbole? Yeah a little - but that really is the message you guys are singing. And the mighty "ones" you're getting the bad advice from, they're not
ones of a one grand consciousness - they're demons and they're trying to corrupt you by having you believe you're God.
I find this discussion quite interesting because i think both sides of the argument are right, in their own ways.
This subject is not to be taken lightly on either side. Focusing to much on quelling the Ego can/will bring about depersonalization and from there
develop into a depersonalization disorder.
On the other hand if you pay no attention at all to your subconscious (non ego/true) SELF, your behavior can quickly start to resemble that of a
sociopath, only striving for your immediate wants.
I think, based on personal experience watching myself and others, that people new to these ideas (and enthusiastic about them), usually get the wrong
initially. Engaging in a battle against their Ego with points form people preaching the path, and not trying to understand the Ego and how it
operates. This approach usually only inflates the ego and can sometimes bring about a manic state. The other end of the "destroy my ego" mentality is
depersonalization, getting the feeling you are just a person watching a movie unfold in front of you with no real control.
And if you don't pay attention to "true self". You will come to reflect the people that really do people and this world harm.
But everyone has to start somewhere, and I would recommend studying ones Ego. But do so without throwing any previous ideas out the window; because
each life is different and there are no exact do's and dont's.
The way user "bleeep" brings demons into this discussion is totally out of context and confusing at best,
but I understand where he is coming from... sort of.
But most importantly, just remember to breathe.
