Ego( I- am ) and awareness in the being – are the two power centres in a human being.
Every human being asks oneself, at some point of time, a classic existential question. “What do I really want with my life.?Am I going along the right path? What am I doing here all these time ?does it make sense for me ?
Insanity is a relative term in a confused world of human ego,where many abnormalities get normalised in course of time by the human perception( common sense). Civilised and educated people have the capacity in decorating their abnormalities in clever ways. We try to create our own realities in fulfilling our dreams .But these reality has only a short life.It can be only a passing reality. Then we ask the above said existential questions.
The human ego creates a functional identity called “I”
There are two virtual forces, that make us sane or insane. The “I“, created by our knowledge, is an ever active centre, that works inter- connectedwith our senses in the body which are receptors of information. Since the mind and sensors work nonstop,together under the command of our ego, it becomes a single identity,called the psycho-somatic person. It means, that the body and mind works as a single unit under the CEO “I“. When our ego is affected, the body too suffers. The human ego is an ever changing status of this psychosomatic environment,which produce non stop , emotional waves and tsunamies of big up and downs in our life.
Awareness of the being fixes the wavering ego and bring peace in to it.
Consciousness is a source of inner – light , the source of energy and orientation. It is the source of peace, bliss and love. But is not a personal environment like the ego. “Consciousness in the being” exists as a totality and divinity which is the soul of the universe.
Unlike consciousness,the human ego is very personal, creative and emotional centre in people .Due to the emotional orientation in people, our ego may operate over the normal level,or under the normal level. When the emotional baggage becomes a burden, continuously, it could lead to a status of insanity of our “I” .
Consciousness and the ego (the emotional I) in people , create different worlds of possibilities in celebrating everything except the life.
Our ego, the “I” is ever thrilling to create the material world and exploiting it`s entertainment possibilities. The “I“ dreams, non stop on creativity and achievements. The “I” wants to achive the targests through either virtues or a vices,as the logic tells us. When we do evils we are blind with selfish interests.
Mostly the ego- oriented people live in great confusion and fear because of their emotional attachments.Consciousness in the being , demands the total detachment of emotions of all kinds.
“Peace with joy”- called bliss, is the expression of consciousness in the being.On the other hand our ego person produces the waves of emotional feeling as happiness and sorrow.
A balancing of the,wavering ego could bring peace and contentment into the life of people.This is possible only through the change of orientation from our ego to the consciousness in the being(awreness) .
When our ego is hyperactive, making confusion, problems and miseries of all kinds, we fall into a self made hell or a vicious cycle,from where we do not see an escape route. This is a state of insanity, where people try to escape with abnormal thoughts and actions that are far away from reality. Even faith or cult worshipping is the sign of insanity and fear.
Abnormal activity of our ego destroys peace, that leads to insanity.
Whether a person is sane or insane depends on the personal capacity to see the clarity in the self made confusions. only a peaceful mind could exist as sane. Peace is an output of realising the consciousness by the ego, in people.Consciousness is the divine power that controls the whole universe.
Consciousness is the infinite power.
People should realize it in them self to make use of this unlimited power. Then they become peaceful and powerful to avoid any evil temptations of their ego.What ever things ,the ego does outside the consciousness could mean an insanity.
Therefore we could say that, naturally, people are never 100 % sane . The insanity differs in people, as to their perception and the orientation on consciousness. A person with more consciousness, has the capacity to control their mind . A more conscious person is a powerful one,who succeeds everywhere. Such person remain sane, controlling any over activity of their ego.
The ego could become blind and fanatic with beliefs and faith.
Education and culture may influence the range of perception, thinking and talent, that again influence the mind .The range of consciousness in a person is the deciding factor of sanity and insanity in that person. Consciousness could not be encouraged or discouraged by educating as in the case of ego.
Human ego is blind,cannot orient,it needs to be educated and motivated for any purpose.
People could orient only through it`s perceptions.Perceptions build logic which guides people in to creative life. As the perceptions widen,people could see more wide and clear. Right education, and logical thinking could give right vision in people.
The prejudice of our ego does not allow us to see and realise the reality.That is why people may have to repent on what they did, on a later date.The ego manipulates the realities as to it`s interests and vision.This makes people non-authentic and pretentious. The ego works, in partiality and selfishness. It can have, only a tunnel view, over the environment and the world.
Awareness is light and orientation.
It could shine like the sun, when we realise it. But our confused ego is constantly making an eclipse on this sun in us. This causes mental distortions and insanity. Any perversions happen in people because of an eclipse caused by the confused and tensed ego in people. As a result, life become miserable.
The eclipse is personal and the hell or heaven is also personal.
Realising the sun inside the human being is Yoga.
Saluting the Sun in us, relieves our ego from insanity and madness of different kinds
