This post is a continuation on my earlier posts : Deeper Reflection Part 1 & Part 2.
This session we discuss 2 points:
4) “Dissolve Your Ego with Love”
Non reaction to the ego in others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also of dissolving the collective human ego. Its time we go for a “ego-detox”now.
If the cosmos is a grand ocean, we are all part of it. We are one with the ocean, not individual drops in the ocean. When we think of ourselves as individual drops, we feel separate in our boundary and in our feelings. This is what is called ego. We become driven by feelings of ‘I’ and ‘mine’. As long as this separation remains, we never experience the energy of the ocean that is love, we can never experience that causeless and surging love.
Love is being in the flow with Existence, to be totally with it. Ego is like frozen ice. Love is like liquid water. Only when we are liquid do we become part of the ocean. Then we don’t have any private goal or destination. Each moment is blissful, incredibly ecstatic, just going with the plan of the cosmos.
Ego ceased to exist in Present and Ego can’t grow in a flowing love environment. As long as we are living in present state of love, ego ceased to exist.
One of the way to Free Yourself From Your Ego is to Choose Love.
Yeah, I know how that sounds, but give it a chance. In the words of Gabrielle Bernstein, a fabulous spiritual and motivational speaker, “Whenever you’re afraid, it’s proof that you’ve turned your back on love and chosen to have faith in the ego.” See, in her philosophy, love is the only emotion. Fear is an illusion. I know, it’s heady stuff, but what helped me most was this: as soon as you have a fearful or anxious thought, tell yourself (again, from Gabrielle Berstein), “love did not create this thought, and so it is not real.”
Even if you can’t quite get on board the love train, don’t worry about it. Just start telling yourself “if love did not create it, it is not real.” Trust me on this. You’ll have a whole new perspective on your situation. It’s amazing how solutions suddenly occur to you once you’re no longer trapped in the fear/anxiety loop.
5) “The past has no power over the present moment.”
This is easy to comprehend. You are creating your reality, right now. With each breath you inhale. With each thought you accept as truth.With every step you take. With every sight you see.And all the feelings you feel.
The past does not have to linger. You are not who you were yesterday, or five years ago.
You are constantly becoming. You are a process. And you are on a journey.
We will continue our next session on more new learnings and reflection.
See you all in our next session again.
With Love & Light,
