THE CLOSER WE GET to solving mankind’s behavioral problems, the more dysfunctional we become, as can be witnessed by the upheavals in the world today. What is happening is our collective human ego is rebelling against its imminent demise as the master of our minds.
WE ARE ALL SPIRITUAL BEINGS wrapped up in a dank, cumbersome body that we’ve chosen to inhabit for the duration of one lifetime. The physical body enclosing us, that we learn to call ‘Me’ feels strange and uncomfortable at first… but eventually we get used to it.
WE All SUFFER in some way at times, both physically and mentally, but imagine standing aside for a moment during your suffering. If you did you might become aware that there is another calmer self that has always been there quietly observing you, not only during your pain, but in every moment of your life.
WE ALL HAVE REASONS for behaving the way we do. We believe our thoughts and actions are always right and legitimate, or at least excusable, while at the same time believing that it’s other people who are fallible and prone to acting and thinking wrongly.
AS A BABY WE ARE BORN CONSCIOUS of the purpose of our life… albeit only for a short time, until we are plunged into the unconscious depths of our humanness. But why is it necessary to so quickly become unconscious? Why doesn’t the awareness of who we truly are continue?
