Two Worlds 11
WHILE EVER WE BELIEVE that we are our physical body and mind (our ego), we will live in the past and future… in memory. The present moment will remain hidden behind a disconcerting cloud of indiscriminate thought.
The past and future gives our ego the illusion of individuality, of beingness. If we lived in the present moment, we would not ‘be’ anymore – and that’s what we (our ego) are most afraid of.
If we were brave enough to stop thinking and live in the present moment, we really would cease to exist – as the person we think we are – but we would continue to exist as a different awareness of self, an awareness that has always been there within us, but has been covered up by the thinking ego.
We would continue with our life as usual, but not as who we presently think we are and that is what our ego is most afraid of, (that is what we are afraid of) the fear that we will wake up and discover the truth of who we really are. That is why it is so difficult, for there is a part of us that doesn’t want to wake up.
The ego has taken charge by thinking, thus usurping power. Our soul, believing it is now the ego, accepts this physical world of time and space as reality. The chauffeur and the passenger have morphed into one with the upstart ego now in charge. That is why we feel so forsaken by God in a world gone mad with war and strife.
Why doesn’t God step in and answer our prayers? Because in the beginning, God gave the soul free will. God cannot intervene without contravening that gift. Has God then abandoned our immortal soul whilst we are here on earth, leaving us to the mercy of a tyrannical ego? No! Exactly the opposite.
There is no need for God to intervene. The life drama is simply that – a drama – a story in which we (as God/soul) experience and learn. We find that very difficult to believe and some of us will bluntly refuse to believe, but we are only looking at it through the ego’s eyes – and it doesn’t want to see…
