Have you as a kid gone in to your room when you’re asked to tidy up your toys and put them away and then upon finding all these other toys forgotten you’ve had, ended up playing a whole new game forgetting all about why you came in to the room in the first place? If you haven’t at least you must know or heard of a kid who does it. My daughter does that all the time. That reminds me that, what she is reflecting is a micro version of what’s going on with us humans at macro level.
We are (at least most of us consciously ) embarked on this journey to find our root, core, Source or God or where we come from. We all yearn to be with that is what we call God or Source. So we’ve realised that we need to go deeper, deeper than our flesh and blood and even deeper than our mind to find this Source. We have hundreds or if not thousands of many different ways to do this and meditation comes on top of almost in every belief system we have.
We go to extreme lengths searching for this Holy Grail following many different gurus, paths and methods yet not truly finding out how we will reach it. We try accumulating things and people in our lives, improving our living conditions, reaching for the most comfortable way of life, finding the highest paid job, perfect life partner etc. but after living in that state for sometime it dawns you that you haven’t found the Inner Peace yet.
What you realise is that you have been accumulating all these things around to fill a gap you feel deepening in your core. In fact you are not searching for peace but you are running away from it and mostly from yourself. We have become so afraid to be alone with ourselves. We’ve become afraid to really look deep in to ourselves and find out who really lives there deep inside us.
We surround ourselves with technology, internet and gadgets so we can keep ourselves occupied and distracted all the time. We keep pushing our true emotions down under and continue to live a pretend character that we believe the society will approve of. Until these tucked away stuff that you didn’t want to look at make its way up to the surface ten folded in the form of mental and physical sickness. Continue reading
We know that before coming to this earthly experience you were connected and one with all that is, that we call Source/ God with all your super power abilities and insights intact. Truth is we still are connected and was never disconnected; but there is a strong filter/veil in place between Source and us maintaining the illusion that we are separate individuals from Source and each other. This filter works so well that we have been living in a state of amnesia not remembering our original state or any previous lives we’ve lived prior to this. It was agreed and necessary for us to go through the amnesia in order to forget who we really are to make the Earthly experience a real one.
We call this filter that separate you from Source/God “Ego”. Yes your ego driven personality is your new identity in this game we call “Life on Earth” and gives you the illusion that you’re a separate entity from the rest of the existence. Ego’s purpose is to give the ocean the limited feel of a bottle of water, the space.. the limited feel of a bottle of oxygen. We really have squeezed our enormous selves in to these very limited physical bodies. Or the ego gives us that feeling….ever felt like you are trapped in a tiny box and wanted to break free?
