Ego, succinctly: The voice in the head that never shuts up. “To finally know divinity as our own consciousness and being, we need only understand that it’s our nonstop thinking that obscures the direct experience of God.”
No one told you? You are the most perfect boy—beautiful, unstained and innocent to the illimitable power of God. Such a thin disguise! Beneath this holed sheath of conditioned behaviours, habit and memory, you are. Namaste.
Divinity eschews dependence. You are transcendentally alone. It is up to you.
Until a man sees himself as he is, he is flying blind. He goes from one mess to another.
Eventually, he becomes embittered. Or, with the ‘help’ of drugs, sex, work or video games, he numbs out.
In extremis, he finds himself in an ache-scape, in the midst of a great loneliness.
Now, nothing that is, is without a divine aspect. Is this mess the one that reveals the man to himself?
We do not pray to. We pray from.
