As Fear is my Idea of Succes, I am entitled to defend my fear

Zoe:
“It is difficult to define oneself without thinking in terms of separation from a whole. If living an ego-less life means merging with others, then the collective consciousness as a ‘whole’ has to thus change as well. We are living in an age where the collective consciousness – the whole – has been replicated and replaced with a collective goal: Success.

Me:
Change occurs only when we understand the intrinsic nature of thought.

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 invariably 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.

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

Can you finally tell me where this “me” and “mine” starts and ends?…
After all:

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”?

We see ourselves as human “doings” rather than human “beings”

She:
We spend the majority of our time working hard at whatever profession that we have chosen, striving to achieve a goal that we believe will make us happy.  Many times we spend our days striving to get to Friday so that we can wind down, however when we get to the weekends we busy ourselves to the point with all our activities that we are more exhausted when Monday arrives again.

Instead of trying to “do” more, we should make a conscious effort to “be” more.

Me:
I just couldn´t restrain myself from laughing:

Human “doings” rather than human “beings…so insanely true…

Furthermore, you say that instead of trying to “do” more, we should make a
conscious effort to “be” more.

You see, the effort “to be more” is as big a misconception, as trying “to do more”.

Once you don´t know Who you are, you try “to be more”; in fact whatever
“you try” out of that inner confusion, is of no avail.

If you find out who you really are instead, you don´t need any effort to “be”,
or “do” more.

Have you ever seen a rose “putting in” an effort to grow? Or a sparrow
“trying” to fly?…I for one, haven´t.

Things flow seamlessly when you are what you are.

Once you are thirsty you drink…;)

We could do so much more & achieve all that we desire if we all came together more times than not, supporting one another, sharing with each other, removing the need for judgment & accepting that we are all connected and what affects one eventually will affect the collective.

How can we bring about a real change within?

This is the huge paradox:

Innumerable books about spirituality have been written lately. Yet, to no avail really. All these books, haven´t had the right impact to penetrate in-depth and bring about a REAL CHANGE IN OUR COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS, it´s a fact.

Yes, let´s face it, all this enormous book-writing has failed.

WHAT DO WE REALLY NEED IN ORDER TO BRING ABOUT A REAL CHANGE
WITHIN?…
