You might be surprised to know you probably have an annoying ghost writer imposter called: YOUR EGO who actually writes your daily movie script, which accounts for about 98 percent of the people in the world…nearly 7 billion.
To set the record straight YOUR EGO IS NOT YOU, but a well conditioned FORM that will attach to anything and keep you in the rat race forever. This ego is nobody’s fool! The ego will use every bit of trickery and sophisticated skills to keep employed and literally take over your life if you allow it.
If you were a Hollywood script writer and you wrote the same plot everyday… soon you would lose you job. Why then do you tolerate your ego to write your script everyday without throwing up a challenge and say… whose in control here anyway!
Mr. Ego I don’t remember hiring you to write my daily script…so you just stepped in and took over without me even knowing it. “Yes I did. You weren’t paying attention to the universal laws so through very sophisticated conditioning since you were born, I have been here all along as a cheerleader, armchair coach and apparent mentor…helping you grab and get more, helping you with jealousy, crime, and war. That’s my job man!
So you finally found out that I am an imposter and certainly not for your good or the worlds good. What are you going to do about it? Fire me! Not so fast you need me and I won’t give up that easily. I will always be trying to entice you into neighborhood disputes, religious wars, and just downright greedy underworld type activities.”
So there you have it. We used to think that to call someone a bird-brain was very derogatory, however even the tiniest of birds understands universal law and never worries about the next meal, because the bird knows there is enough and doesn’t have to join the egotistical rat race just to survive. Even the so-called bird-brain is closer to the universe than us humans… chasing around like madmen to accumulate things. Without knowing it our overactive super-egos take control of our lives and dominate all of our self-talk… writing your daily script as the ego gains more control over your life. It’s like having a recording on steroids. Just having the knowledge that our ego is the main problem blocking our higher level of consciousness is enough to make a personal shift and eventually help create a global higher consciousness… creating a greater benefit for mankind.
QUOTE: The problem is not somewhere outside; the problem is Your Ego. You have to be saved from the ego. The problem is man himself; man has to be saved from man himself. The enemy is not outside, the enemy is within. In surrender you drop that enemy. In that very dropping the inner darkness disappears. Not that you surrender and I will do something; remember, nobody can do anything. When you surrender, in that very surrender something happens and your inner light starts burning, your inner light starts becoming clear. Clouds disappear. Not that through your surrender I will do something to you; YOU do something to you through your surrender.
THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: Surrender is a gift from God. When you are completely absent, neither doing nor not doing, it happens. But it has nothing to do with you, so you can completely forget about it. You simply do your ordinary things: eat, sleep, walk, dance, sing, love — you do your ordinary things and you just forget all about surrender. One day, suddenly, it is there. Doing the ordinary things of life, not waiting for any extraordinary happening, not waiting for some miracle, one day it is there. It is simply there. One morning you rise and it is there — your whole room is full of a benediction. And after that, you cannot lose it; there is no way to lose it. Because, really, in surrender what actually happens is that your own nature comes to a flowering. But it is a gift from God. Even pray not for it, because in your prayer also there will be desire.
THINGS YOU WANT TO SAVE: Your inner peace and natural connection to the universe!
ZENTRAVELER SAYS: Fire your ego immediately and take charge of your own movie script! Whose journey is it anyway yours or your egos.
From here to Infinity is a relatively short ride! The next leg takes eons and eons as you fly through the Barycentric Dynamical Time Zone! …and on and on and on.
