Each human being is a virtual divide.
One is the peripheral being,the emotional being called the ego.The other is the in depth being-the human self. When both parts work in harmony and inter-conected, that person become authentic and successful. Each individual is trying to be a service provider in this world but differentiating themselves from the rest, as they want to outperform their peers. This urge to outperform the peers is only a need of the ego. The self cannot compete with anything.Because it is total and divine.How could your right hand compete against the left? If it does, the body cannot function.This is why the world of human ego run always in to unwanted problems and destroy peace and harmony in people.
To be at peace with our self, is the most impossible thing in life.
when one’s ego carries the heavy burden of aversion of loss and detachment on what we possess , it could result in a constant conflict, a feeling of discontent and irritation with our inner being.
A burdened human ego builds barriers between themselves and the environment they live.The fear that one may lose the popularity, the positions, hunts people anywhere, all the time. Even if people are aware of such perils , they do not make efforts to reduce the weight of their baggage, which is the impediment for a personal liberation.
That is why Jesus told the following parable. “Look at the birds of the sky; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Spirituality demands from the human ego, it`s self exile .
“I” am the sole enemy of the holy spirit in me. Detachment and contentment are two sides of the same coin. Zero emotion in the action means zero emission of anger, hatred, rebellion and shocks from within the person which are self destructive evils.
A zero emotional personality could yield peace and bliss in people. Because they do not carry any emotional baggage with them. Then only people could stop, finding fault with others. Then only people could find peace with them self .
Human ego and the pride of ownership.
As soon as a human child is born on earth, so many ownerships are built on it, one by one. At first, the parents come and say ” hey look at our child”. We praise the God for giving us such a generous gift. Then comes the church,and say ” see we have a new member to our parish”.Then comes the local political authority and give the local citizenship of the township.Then comes the national authority to confirm the nationality and give the person a national passport. These are mostly the obligatory ownerships and attachments up on an average human being in their childhood.But the child do not have the feeling of a counter attachment.
The emergence of an ego, killing the child.
Small to big, any evil on earth starts with the human ego that could be personal or social. When a human child evolves to it`s “I”-thinking, the ego replaces the child gradually. The divinity and innocence of the childhood take a back seat, when people grow up. As the “I” ages,the innocent child acquires an image, that tells the world – “I am aging”.
Nothing is enough for the the human ego, to lead a happy life.The hierarchy of needs goes one step above with each acquisition.People start building friendships and memberships in as many organisations as possible.They find it necessary to get married and have a spouse and children to keep their pride beyond their life.
With every possession or ownership, the human ego builds a feeling of emotional attachment on those things that are in possession. For the human ego , an “enough of enough” is the most impossible .People are ever, in an acquisition mode for something,all along the life. The more it has , the more it wants to have. People wants to have anything and everything that comes in their eyes to be valuable and useful in any sense.
Greed is the dangerous sickness in people,that they do not see as dangerous.
It is greed that makes and breaks dreams and make the life a disaster. The meaning of human life do not lie in accumulating as much as possible of wealth,power and relationships. Because, when death comes it cuts all the ownership and possession from people. The human pride of possessing live only till the death. Nobody is allowed to take even the most precious - the body .
People should leave everything here on departure ?
A departure is sure from the life. The uncertainty on that departure is also certain. What is amassed as”my”, all that belong to “me“ become nothing of mine. It has to be left here on the departure for a simple reason that, you did not come to earth with anything. Everybody must leave the earth, as they came – with empty hands.
Then what is the meaning of all this hard work and all the evils undertaken in sake of accumulating all these wealth and power ?. yes there is not much meaning in living only to accumulate wealth or power by doing evil or ignoring the nature.The basis should be on ethics.Then only wealth and power has a meaning for itself.
Yes it is absurd and dirty to have the feeling of possessing something.
If it was possible, people would have collected sunlight, air and the sky as private owned property,deceiving the real owner- God. It is not only of possessing and using things that are needed,the human ego enjoys a feeling of pride in the ownership and possession.
It is hundred times more dirty to feel proud about the possession and ownership. It is against God. It is against nature. When ever you feel the possession, you loose the charm in it . Life has it`s meaning and charm only out side of what people possess. Because all possessions are connected to feelings that attach people to that. That is why Jesus told the following.
“He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Important thing to be understood in all what Jesus says at the “me”.
“ When Jesus say about “me”, it means not the person Jesus but the spirit Jesus which exists in every person and fills every space with divinity.
Jesus says again “do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”.
Here also he speaks out the follies of possessing.One who possesses, cannot be free of feeling and fear, which makes life meaningless.
Jesus says “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
One who has an ego cannot be perfect or divine. When ever,there is the feeling of any attachment in people ,the human ego will exist with evils. People could learn to avoid the emotional attachment to their things and relations. Then the life becomes evil free.
Destroy your ego, that is fed with emotional attachment with everything in the world. Say goodbye to evils and enter the heaven on earth.
