Training the computerized mind and the body's reflexes to relax, to be 'still' if you will, is among the most difficult tasks to conquer on the path of changing from ego control to placing the High Self in command.
The ego likes noise and distraction. It thrives on the chaos of busyness. It feeds on these things, and on the energy of people in family, work, or society in general. The ego can be seen as a gatherer of energy from other physical sources. This explains why the ego is selfish. It knows that its very existence relies in direct proportion to how much energy it can steal from others. And we say "steal" to emphasize the selfish nature of the ego.
In some instances energy will be shared between one or more ego-driven individuals, involving a mutual understanding that there is mutual benefit in helping sustain one another. And this is as close to the state of loving the ego can get. Selfish acts comitted to preserve ego are seen every day in the world. And when the ego feels unloved it will try to get love from all the wrong places, for love is often confused with attention. If another individual is "paying attention" to an ego-based individual, the ego easily confuses the energy of attention with the energy of genuine love.
Selfish acts are committed every day because those committing such acts are desperate to fill the void or vacuum within themselves. The worst in your society -- rapists, murders -- have a black hole within where love should be. The chasm that exists within these individuals is so dark that the wisdom of Light and the healing power of Love cannot penetrate. Such individuals could be likened to the term "bottom feeders." Light is almost nonexistent at the bottom of the ocean [consciousness]. We say "almost" nonexistent because the Light never goes out entirely. It only needs attention to flare up again and light the way to the surface dimension where Light and Love abound.
Ask yourself: To what degree am I ego bound? How selfish am I? The best gauge by which to measure the extent of your ego's control over your actions is to ask yourself have I put the welfare of others into the equation? Reining in the ego, enfolding the ego into your higher self begins when the individual asks, each and every time it interafaces with another, have I considered the needs of the other(s)? What is the impact of my actions or words on the other(s)?
It is at this point that integration begins by the ego allowing itelf to be absorbed into the realm of Love and Light. Under the direction of the High Self, the ego can now see itself for what it is and always has been -- a small part of the larger self. The separation* occurred when the ego saw what it perceived as a chance to shine all by itself in the world of matter. But the ego's ability to sustain life from this lower energy source is only temporary, always resulting in the eventual death of the body.
Free will was given to the sons and daughters of Mother-Father God as the birthright of a god. If you are a son or daughter of God, are you any less? Of course not. In your purest state of existence, you are God Incarnate. And in this pure state of existence, free will would not be misused or used for any reason other than as intended by the Creator. Free will was the gift of creation, the ability to create Life, to control energy. God did not see, could not see, that a part of itself could break off, separate from itself since the physical experience is but an extension of God energy. It was meant to be heaven on earth, as in the Garden of Eden story.
Mother-Father God, not being physical/material in essence, could not forsee the "desire" power of the ego manifesting on earth. And the separation produced the duality we now live with -- Good and Evil It is no mistake that certain words are descriptive of the "reversal" that occurred at this time. The word EVIL is LIVE in reverse. The word DEVIL is LIVED in reverse. GOD is DOG in revese, but not as it pertains to the animal. In your society, when referring to an individual, it has a "bottom feeder" connotation attached to it.
As the ego sees the example of Love and Light manifesting through other individuals, it observes a sense of peace and contentment within these individuals; a lack of chaos or emotional turmoil, a letting go of the desire to control circumstances.
Faith! It senses their faith. Their trust in someone or something other than themselves. It begins to ask questions. What is this someone or something that gives some individuals peace and contentment? What is this feeling I sense when in their presence? Acceptance?
They do not want anything from me. They do not drain my energy. There are no conditions I must meet in order to be with them. And neither will they allow me to place conditions on them. From what source are they getting energy if not from others? There must be another source?
There is, dear ones. Open your heart and let it be healed by Love. Open your higher mind and let it be directed by the wisdom contained in the beams of Light now surrounding and penetrating your world.
So small was the level of love experienced by the ego that the abilities of the heart to expand were not utlilized. For as the phyical heart pumps life-giving blood throughout the body to nourish and sustain the entity, so does the Soul have a heart center to nourish and sustain its existence. And Love is the energy source that nourishes and expands the Soul.
Love has no beginning and no ending. It is constant. It is always and will always be. To receive Love we must be willing to share Love, for we will receive in direct proportion. Love must flow. It cannot be harnessed or bottled up or possessed. Possessions are physical. Love is Universal. Think of it as a never-ending circle.
It is whole (Holy). It is Ihe end all, Be All.
