The Library 5
EVENTUALLY our ego must succumb to the ravages of time and although we may be kicking and screaming all the way to the threshold, we must finally face the light outside – which for our ego means death and oblivion – but not to our true selves. In truth we have experienced the end of myriad lifetimes and so physical death holds no threat to our continuation.
For our ego though, death has never been experienced before. Death is the newest of the new – and the most feared, for it does not survive – and it knows it. This might appear callous, but a person who fears change or newness in ordinary day to day life is destined to experience a rather traumatic ego death, for their ego’s extrication from the safe and known confines of its mental library could be quite a terrifying experience.
Depending on our ego’s resistance, the duration of our journey to death’s door will vary. The story goes that on the other side, all our loved ones that have transitioned before us will be lovingly waiting to give us a hand to help rid us of our illusion of the ego and hence its needless terror.
Maybe that is the ‘soul’ purpose of their attendance at this time, so our transition will not be so frightful, but come what may, eventually our ego will dissolve back into the nothingness from whence it came, revealing to us once again who we really are and always have been, reunifying us as our true eternal non physical self…
