Only the Ego can be Offended.

Only the Ego can be Offended.

The ego lives in illusion, and it is our spiritual destiny to understand this ego and it’s illusions. What is required to fully appreciate this Teaching is the understanding of this ego. We have to have the strength to look at the nature of our appearance. We have to have the resilience to look at what is true about ourselves. No body-mind is perfect; the ego has inherent limitations in its mechanical nature. To accept this is to begin to move beyond our denial about non-perfection. You believe that these Teachings don’t apply to you because you are special, but your very belief that there is a ‘you’ and a ‘me’ is a sign of this illusion of separateness of which I speak. These Teachings are not my opinion, they are true to form in their historical context. These Teachings are an offence to the ego, and they have always been an offence to the ego. If they are an offence to you, it means that they are working. Only the ego or the separate one can be offended! There is only God, everything else is illusion.

The Way to Enjoy Happiness

The Way to Enjoy Happiness

Happiness is enjoyed through the falling away of illusion. Enlightenment is the realization of the unqualified nature of Happiness, not the dilution of an illusory appearance that derives from perception and conception. In any case, what is required in order to truly enjoy Happiness is that we transcend the obstruction of our individualized experience. The true Reality of the Divine can be enjoyed when there is the transcendence of this false imagery of appearance. Only through these means can the ultimate nature of Happiness be enjoyed. The way to enjoy Happiness is through complete understanding of the true nature of the Divine. When the true nature of the Divine is understood the bliss of the Happiness is spontaneously enjoyed.

Ideologies are Illusions

Enlightenment is the realization of Truth. The less we deceive ourselves, the closer we are to enlightenment. Ideologies are prisons of the mind. The Truth transcends the limits of conception. When you understand, you are free from all mental prisons. With understanding comes the transcendence of what is untrue. With true awakening, we enjoy freedom from all forms of illusion.



Spiritual Life Transcends Ego

Spiritual Life Transcends Ego

Conventional religion and spirituality are very different than spiritual life. Having spiritual, or religious beliefs is not the equivalent of living a spiritual life. Sadhana, or spiritual practice, requires us to move beyond belief. When we are no longer afraid, we embrace the divine directly. The direct experience of God transcends conditional thought patterns. Exclusiveness and provincialism are egoic fallacies, which only exist to reinforce the illusion of separate existence. All perceptions and beliefs are aspects of the ego, as they must ultimately be transcended for happiness to be realized.

All Form is Illusion

People have all sorts of false perceptions about themselves and everybody else; ultimately, any perception is false! So even when people think they are being real, they are still living in illusion; they are still living a lie. All of this just leads to more pain and suffering. It leads to more broken hearts and misunderstandings. Everything that happens in our lives happens for a reason, this is how we understand ourselves. We are constantly suffering from attachment to false realities until we let them go. To be real is to live in Consciousness, we cannot have all sorts of false perceptions if we are going to live in Consciousness. We have to be truthful with ourselves and everybody else, we have to come clean about what we are, or we will continue to live in delusion. All form is illusion.
