i is for the ego. the thing that makes things happen.
for good and for bad.
i have heard the ego described as the gatekeeper between the awareness and the unconscious.
i have heard the ego vilified by those who wish to find some enlightenment via mechanical means.
i have listened to people raving about quieting the ego in meditation or during yoga for some reason, as if they will become an ascended master sitting on a mat in thier new yoga get-up while taking yoga classes at the "y".
and i do have to ask why.
jesus would pray.
he would get on the celestial telephone to his dad and go on for hours about the isrealites and the cannanites and the cicereans and the romans and the philestines and the assyrians and the jews.
can we do that?
i don`t think so.
so what`s this thing some have against the ego?
i think i know.
jesus would have had to have been some sort of egtoist to have wanted to heal people, or preach the word of god, his father........and to have laid claim to be the son of god.....and to have challenged the authority of the occupying roman army and of the jews.
and maybe the romans and the jews got so sick and tired of this egotist that they finally tacked him to a tree.
or maybe he was actually capable of what he claimed and that was what got him killed.
