The ego, not necessary but inevitable.

As humans, there is something that we have missed that has prevented us from experiencing Permanent Health, Prosperity, Security, Justice and Love. Without this something, every effort to attain these conditions is futile and the experience will continue to elude us.

Yet, this something is so fundamental, so simple, so close at hand that you will laugh out loud when you Realize what it is. It Is Consciousness and Consciousness Is You.

However, if you are unconscious that You are Consciousness, a sense of limitation and lack become your experience. In My last blogpost, I said I would explore the reasons why the ego was inevitable. Well, Man (not gender specific) is the only species that can refer to its self as “I”. i says, “i am strong”, “i am intelligent”, “i am good”. But in thinking this about its self, it became unconscious of its Source. I, Consciousness, wouldn’t say these things about My Self. I Embody these things. But as soon as i quantifies and qualifies its self, it sets its self up for lack of these things. All of a sudden i can be weak, i can be stupid, i can be bad…and the list goes on…i can be sick, i can be poor, i can be injured etc.

Unconsciousness of Our True Identity “causes” all the discords of our life – sickness, poverty, loss, injustice, insecurity etc. Then why haven’t we recognized it before?  Well, the “we” asking that question is human consciousness, the ego, i, and it must be exposed as false for Consciousness to be Realized. Understandably, the ego doesn’t want to be annihilated. Therefore, the few times in history that the Truth has been Revealed, human consciousness has rejected it. The irony is that we are hanging onto an identity that, from the outset, was obsolete. There Is only One Consciousness and You are, I Is, that.

You See, Consciousness Is All there Is. There can’t be anything separate from Consciousness or it wouldn’t be conscious. If You can accept this, then you must agree that there is only One Consciousness and It Is Infinite (It must include everything and everyone). Furthermore, Being Infinite, Consciousness can’t include anything destructive or limited or it wouldn’t be Infinite anymore. If there is no destructive or limiting influence, then Consciousness must Be Abundant and Permanent. Consciousness embodies all your Good: Love, Peace, Health and Security, Abundantly and Permanently. We embody All this!

You See i was inevitable, but never True!

Is the ego necessary?

Mind sciences and philosophy revolve around the “fact” of the ego. Consequently we have accepted this “ego” as our personal identity.

But should we be accepting the ego without question? When we do, we accept all the lacks and limitations of its experience as our reality. We sell ourselves short through this unconscious act.

In this blog, I call the ego i. Let’s examine some common utterances of i:

  • i am poor
  • i am sick
  • i am afraid

Now, just supposing You were Conscious of Your True Identity, which is the embodiment of Infinite Abundance, Health and Love, could You (as I, Consciousness) be any of these things? Can Infinite Abundance be poor? Can Infinite Health be sick? Can Infinite Love be afraid?

To look at it another way, if You Were Conscious of Your True Identity as I, where would i be? There is only One “I”, therefore i is not. So where does that leave poverty, sickness and fear? Nowhere because, in fact, i is an hypnotic influence, tricking us into believing we can’t be Permanently Prosperous, Healthy or Safe. i is the cause and effect of the whole hypnotic trance we call humanity. As long as we accept i as our identity, we must accept its limitations.

Instead of looking for the reasons why i is sick in order to make it well (which is very noble), why not see that the fundamental problem is one of incorrect identification? You are I, not i.

So, to answer the question, “is the ego necessary?” Inevitable Yes, but necessary, No.

In my next post I will explore why the ego was inevitable.

Meanwhile, the ego’s feathers might be a little ruffled by this post, even hostile. How is yours feeling?
