On our Journey to remembering our Union with God, The Creator, All That Is we must move beyond our basic instinct of survival. We must open to a greater truth… surrender our lives not to the small human self of the ego but to our Higher Spiritual Self that is One with Creation. The closer we get to pure surrender and union with All That Is the more the Ego self cries out to be heard. The greatest misconception on the Journey to One~ness is that we must overcome the ego….for in a place of One~ness nothing is outside of ourselves.
Everything is God! Separation is an illusion. The ego, the little “I,” is a natural result of our expanding consciousness that allows us to experience the Earth’s gifts. As a result, humans began to feel separate from God. The part of God that we are as souls began to believe that we were separate…we began to fear for our survival, and the ego formed to protect us. Responding to the emotions of fear, anger was the ego’s job, because in the days of survival fear indicated a threat to our lives. And so the little ego of ours did well by us. In order for this great experiment to work we the ego was created with the primitive instinct to stay “alive” at all costs. Think about this the “ego” as we have come to call it is the primitive instinctual part of us that is focused on survival. Since the beginning of time or should we say the “creation of time” this part of us has had the soul purpose of keeping us “alive” in the illusion of separateness. The exploration of the full spectrum of emotions was contingent on the souls perception of individuality and separateness. The Ego or Primitive self’s job was to keep the soul human race alive long enough to explore and learn. Consider the stories of people who have had near death experiences. The majority of them report being consumed by light and love. So death in a sense is the loss of our individual awareness and the expansion into one-ness. Since the human race began this expansion was associated with releasing the body to physical death. Our “ego” has worked diligently to keep us away from that light, that expansion, that one-ness. That was the primary purpose of the ego to keep us alive long enough to explore the earth experience. Now, we are here, having explored the world of Earth and all of its senses and emotions, and we are waking up and remembering that we are One with God, that we were never separate, and we feel the need to fight against the very part of us that led us to this point as a human race. But once again, that is an illusion. If the ego is something to fight against or overcome, then it is not of God, and that is impossible because God is all there is.
What happens when we recognize that even the ego…even the Universal Ego…is God? We pour Love into this part of God, and as we remember we are God, the ego expands into our highest self and we ascend to become masters on Earth…And in this space, anger becomes passion, fear becomes excitement, guilt becomes surrender, greed becomes service, sex becomes creation…and we are whole again, as we have always been. In this place, we begin to experience the bliss of being Spirit on Earth…we become the sight, scent, voice, taste, and touch of God, and we offer back to All That Is the complete ecstasy of loving God’s creation with completeness.
I believe so strongly that embracing and transforming the ego is essential in our journey to Enchanted Oneness that I am offering a free down loadable meditation to re-program your ego from the primitive survival instinct to embracing and supporting Enchanted One in human form. Please feel free to share this with others. It is essential to our world ascension that we support each other in this transformation.
