A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Past is the tool to hone the present for an undreamt future BUT avoidance of past is a EGO issue not related to GOD or his will for us. GOD is Good Orderly Direction coming in strange ways from NOW.
Satire, Sarcasm, Criticism, Disrespect, Insult, Offence & Violence are BUT relative progressions of the lie called EGO. The rest is Chaos with zero Entropy. It was, is & will always BE perfect, just lose the spectacles called Ego and Lo & Behold! the universe is beautiful. Paradise is on Earth. The kingdom is within you!
Ego is your IDENTITY
Answer to the question, "Who I am?"
God is your BEING
Answer to the query, "Who am I!"
Is GOD any different than what I know through my conscience & conscious Empathy?
Sympathy assuages a bruised Ego, Compassion soothes hurt Emotions while Empathy appeals to the higher Intellect born of & limited to individual experience. Sympathy Helps, Compassion Hears, Empathy Heals. The stand one takes depends on the Ego which is an identification of the SELF with the answer to the query, "Who am I?" & NOT "Who I am!". I may be anyone in any role but my Ego is an association with the words I, my & mine relating to I as Body, my as mind & mine as emotions. This translates as a Child, Adult & Parent Ego through submissive, assertive & aggressive behavior patterns.
This idea of God is the traditional one, that there is God outside of u--duality. When one uses CONscious Empathy, very tricky, cause the mind fools using logic... EVEN Gods are reduced to mythological personifications of historical facts in harmony with the individual flavor of personal appeal and Knowledge Base leading to Rational thinking and Evolution. Traditionally, the PROGRAM defines God & Ego as:-
GOD: Good Orderly Direction
EGO: Edging God Out
By the above we can conclude, "Ego is loss of God; God is loss of Ego."
Here Ego, which is the thought construct of reality that one has of oneself, plays a major role. Ego is your individual unique psyche identification & association with the 10th alphabet in English, "I". It is the ego that both creates & resolves a situation if change is adapted or else ego will only act as inertia or resistance to change working through chance. Luck favors those who favor themselves.
"Fate is what your are provided with WHILE destiny is what you make of it. The rest is a matter of choice, YOUR choice. If one is in a situation then the situation was asked for in the first place by the set of choices we made in the past in the pursuit of our dream with good intentions and sound motivation & a viable opportunity that one accepted as a challenge depending on ones's Ego state at that point of commitment."
If choices are made with feeling then they will only satisfy the physical ego or body level COMFORT... prevents one from changing preferences & is based on past habits, it can be choice of smell, taste, color, texture, or sound in any matter. If Intellect plays a role then it will satisfy the emotional ego or the need to BELONG. But choices made by means of both modes through tangibility & answer-ability are called balanced decisions born out of PRAGYA or wisdom through prudence and will lead to spiritual ego...Ego is the ignorance not revealed in the statement when someone says, "I Know".
When the present is not in concurrence with the planned for expected future then anger is a natural outcome of the ego in self defense of the idea of the protagonist. The focus of such a mind state will be on the failure of the idea, hence self defeating the future & laments only the shortcomings & thus is struck in the past. Any effort to remedy the situation with effort is undermined by attitude, any word spoken is unkind and in arrogant behavior, and even silence is laden with reactions due to character defects.
Let us examine three pivotal factors or emotions which drive all of the universe into doer~ship! Fear, Anxiety & LOVE!
“Fear always stems from the known mistaken identities arising in ignorance due to beliefs based on assumptions. It is a Ego based self defense mechanism to protect self interest and imminent loss of something dear. Hence all fears are rooted in the past.
Anxiety always stems from the unknown projected perceptions arising in anticipation of an outcome or eventuality. It is an Intellect based self defense mechanism to protect self interest and fulfillment of a cherished dream. Hence all anxieties are rooted in the future.
Love is always in the moment and is never due to any other reason than that which IS. It is an Emotion based self defense mechanism to protect self interest and fulfillment of each others cherished dreams. Hence love is rooted in the present.”
Spirituality ensures one Realizes with Real Eyes the Real Lies and wakes up to truly BEING.
(Religion is Spirituality, Rituals, Customs & Society in equal measure!)
Atheism is the absence of belief that any deities exist. We question the beliefs of others YET it never occurs to us that we atleast query honestly what is my belief in the first place to judge another's. Though honesty is being truthful to others, true integrity is not lying to one self. Have you lately looked in the mirror & heard yourself speak. Trust me it never lies. My mirror told me - "Your trust is your faith & I believe in you."
Religion is a spacetime capsule of Individual Wisdom for Collective Conscience based on experience and testimonies of an individual's spiritual journey undertaken after the efficacy or capacity for producing a desired result, of the prevalent social fabric & belief system failed to deliver. In my case I proceeded from science to spirituality to science in spirituality & now I know the science of spirituality as my cherished self image and thought construct of reality.
There is a time to Play & there is a time to Pray. Life is the journey time in the middle where you play to fructify your prayer.
Happiness is not an emotion but a feeling associated with the Ego and like ALL Feelings needs an object. If the object of ones choice & subsequent desire is not met then it leads to a lot of disappointment since a whole lot of expectation comes crashing down leading to unhappiness. So choose wisely. Value what you desire and respect what you receive. It affects your AURA.
Joy is an emotion & like ALL Emotions it is a state of mind & entirely a subjective experience needing no crutches to support its presence and it is in Being in the moment that grants this. Its a state of enjoyment in the body with the senses fully attuned and a constant state of Awareness in full consciousness. Seeing is Believing. Hearing is Knowing. Smelling is Being. Tasting is Feeling. Touching is Living. Speaking is Sharing. Loving is Leaving. It affects your DREAM.
Bliss is release of energy from the soul that transforms the being and the surrounding too. Soul is a packet of energy conserved through evolution & Karma. Karma is action through thought, word OR deed WHILE Dharma is dynamic Karma or thought, word AND deed. Dharma is resolution of Opposites WHILE Karma is its Union. Right Here, Right Now. Face your KARMA. Loose CONTROL>It affects your SOUL.
Ecstasy is a state of bliss experienced within the body through sensations.
Orgasm is a loss of identity. Total ego loss. You lose all your instincts, intuition, intelligence & imagination at one shot.
Nirvana is perceived permanence in impermanence due to loss of past fears & future anxieties leads to freedom in BEING with no stress in the moment in tune with the body rhythms, natural cycles & cosmic passage.
Samadhi is reaching the Parabrahman. Parabrahman means LIMITING THOUGHT CONSTRUCT!
Moksha is being one with the Brahman: The universe in its celestial Dance of Birth~Change~dissolution!
