What is the one thing that is responsible for every war, for every wrongful death or injury, for every racist remark, and the suffering of all humanity, for all of history?
What negative emotion do we not only find in humans, but also primitive remanence of in animal's?
Our latest revelations of ego in humans is only the tip of the iceberg. My own personal research shows that the EGO's also exist in animals and animal social networks. It is a remnant of a primitive survival program in which humans have the mental capacity to overcome, either through meditation or just plain self-discipline.
When people talk about The Shift, they are not necessarily talking about a physical event but rather an awakening to a realization that our entire history of suffering is the result of EGO. I'm not talking about living like Spock from Vulcan, but rather awakening enough to control or subdue the EGO.
It puzzles me that we would spend millions of dollars in research to stop addictions, and racism, or reduce crime rates but do no research into the root cause that affects everyone on the planet. And it frustrates me to no end to realize that our planet's very survival depends on us finding a way to overcome this ancient adversary. We are on the brink of live or die only because our collective ego has convinced us that weapons of mass destruction are necessary for our survival. Even that very statement is an oxymoron, but our ego manges to blind us to the real reality of what really is reality.
I was once asked "if I had one wish what would it be for?" "My answer of course was world peace." I have never heard anyone answer that question and in the same breath give a solution, so I will be the first.
"END THE EGO"
If you could end suffering for everyone on the planet for all time, what would it be worth?
How many things do you think could be ended or eliminated by controlling or eliminating the ego?
- law enforcement
- government agencies
- addictions [i.e. alcoholism, drug addiction, ect]
