Do we dare assuming wholeheartedly the illusion of the separate ego?

Every time we stress the importance of “mine”, we call in strife and despondency. Infelicity.

The thing is that whatever is “mine” is neither optimistic nor pretty, even if we ascribe it resounding names like “spiritual journey” or “the adventure of the soul”.

Whatever is separate – the “I” – is bound to depress and disconcert…

Disappointment and enmity is inherent in I-ness.

The most vital question is this:
Can we exist without this distinct sense of falseness which is the separate ego?…

Can we wholeheartedly stay with and assume this very dilemma?

We´d better…

As only Wholeness, which is the cessation of the illusion of separateness, of “I” as the center, can thoroughly heal us from conflict and misfortune.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    I think within the physical dimension which is our bodies, it is difficult to define oneself without thinking in terms of separation from a whole. If living a life ego less means merging with others and the land from which we came, then the collective consciousness as a ‘whole’ has to thus change as well. Ego is the ingenuous system of the physical to dull the higher vibratory power and create those obsessed with competition. We are living in an age where the collective consciousness – the whole. Has been replicated and replaced with a collective goal: Success.
    Nice article. 🙂

      Zoe,

      Where there is thinking, there is consequently separation. Strife. Competition.

      Thought is the outcome of all yesterdays, that is, the constant reinforcing of past Experience. Experience is the derivative of Fear. Fear in its turn perpetuates itself through obsessively entertaining and struggling to enhance a false center: the separate ego.
      Thinking creates the illusion of the separate ego? Thinking, basically is invariable defending its dreamed boundary: MINE.

      Look at the relation between Mine, Fear, and Success.

      What we term as “success” is intimately associated with a horrid misunderstanding, as it stems from and overstates the idea of conflict between me and you.

      Can you see that “mine” and “me” is the beginning of suffering, and that basically ME – the separate ego – directly warrants my right to defend my fear? My suffering, my depression, my aggressiveness, my right to use violence against “you”.

      As Love to me is just another side of fear, Fear is thus my God.

      Consequently…I am entitled to be violent against you as long as I defend my success, even if that means relinquishing you. Ultimately, I have the right to relinquish myself too, as long as I equate my fear with success.

      Can you finally tell me where this “me” and “mine” starts and ends?…Speaking of which; Is there a separate “me” without “you”, other than in the fabric of my illusion?

      I call myself “me”, but you call me “you”… – really, at what point do I become “me” and when am I “you”?

        Very interesting reply Julien, and a very interesting attainable conceptualization.
        So when we let go of thought we let go of separation? Yet what if this thought transcends the biological separateness into vibratory messages from the the true plane? Surely then it is not a separation but an extension of the whole as one? As I said, when we look at a tree and all collectively see it as a tree, call it a tree, collectively perceive it as one – we are all in mutually understanding. This blurs the boundaries. However, you are right our collective consciousness is now driven by individualization. Life is a competition….

        I may say one thing or another.

        The truth has to be directly experienced. So see for yourself if thought breeds separation 😉

        Thinking is the outcome of experience, the constant reinforcing of the known; thus thought cannot possibly understand transcendence, as Transcendence cannot be known by the known.

        Thought can never be One either, as it directly stems from fragmentation.

        For the record I have never seen a rose competing with a sunflower. Have you?…

        Also interesting as I am studying ideas of the ‘self’ at the moment and just read this piece ……. ‘According to this view the self begins to develop in early childhood. In the first few
        months of life the child does not distinguish between his/her self from his/her
        environment. This means that, if for instance a baby is holding a rattle then the baby would not perceive of him/her self as separate from the rattle. Gradually, however, the child comes to recognise that s/he is a person who is independent from the rest of the world. This is known as differentiation.’…….

    So you’re saying that only without our state of nothingness – the state of nothingness, the death of the physical would there be a universal comprehension of what truth is. It’s somewhat paradoxical – as we as the singular beings that walk this earth can never be truly whole until our essence transcends the body – and then it will not be us that experiences it anyway?

    When I spoke of competition, I meant human beings….because our consciousness has been bolted into a body which possesses the ego. Competition does occur in nature to a degree though, wouldn’t you say? 🙂
