I know that I speak about this a lot but it is because I want so much for ALL to understand this Truth…
It IS the ego that is the source of ALL of your woes, all of your suffering, and all of your problems, both perceived and unperceived.
The ego wants what IT wants. It is unconcerned with Truth and it is unconcerned with Your Spiritual Evolution. It is in fact diametrically opposed to Your Spiritual Evolution because the end result is its inevitable destruction.
It is ego that prevents One from forgiveness, both of self and of others and it is unforgiveness that causes us pain from guilt over Our pasts and anxiety about the future. It is the ego that cannot live in the moment. Ego must believe itself to be in control when in fact it is in control of nothing.
When One begins to let go of the attachment to things and to specific outcomes the ego will rebel. It will tell You that You need these things, that You need IT. This is how You know that it is ego speaking to you, the ONLY entity that believes in the necessity of ego IS the ego.
Meditation is simply turning off that voice, that “inner dialogue” that comes from this false self. In order to hear from Your True Self, Your Highest Self, which is YOU, One must learn to quiet the mind so that You can hear The Voice that KNOWS instead of the voice that thinks it knows…
All conflict, all depression, all worry, all fear – stems from the ego. Now, I ask You. WHO needs this?
Be Still and KNOW…
Love Each Other,
