The ego is bondage to the past, out of which it is constructed, and to the future, for which alone it lives. The ego invests heavily in the past, and in the end believes that the past is the only aspect of time that is meaningful.

The Eternal Now, Time is Maya. Maya means relative existence. When you are thinking through the mind there is time. But when you transcend mind there is no time. The ego is working with time through the mind, and the infinite self through no-mind and timelessness of the present “NOW”. The ego is bondage to the past, out of which it is constructed, and to the future, for which alone it lives. The ego invests heavily in the past, and in the end believes that the past is the only aspect of time that is meaningful. The now, is the “door of heaven”. “Eternity is now.” Now is what is, all there ever is. The ego concept is fear of death; Fear of death keeps us bound by our fear for our life and self. We become bound in life by our fear of death. which is a threat to life. Life is then lived in fear of death. So. death then becomes the fear for our life. This is the very hold of life, the very hold that life has on us that we must break. The ego must use this concept to feeding it self and fear is it´s fuel. This keeps separation from the real higher divine self and through the veil of ignorance. When you observe in present-time, the veil of ignorance is neutralized, We have been programmed to look backward or forward in time (past-future). Only when we are in the present can we create the future. Therefore, the ego tries to make the future like the past, and avoid the present.

effect that human consciousness artificially breaks the world up into isolated parts and that, as a consequence, someone has to assume responsibility for putting the bits back together again. The task of undoing the fragmentation generated, of imposing order on an endless multiplicity of fragments, has to fall to an agent external to the fragments. This external agent is the ego, which, as we have also heard, tries to control the body. others, and the world.

Authors believes it’s the very way our Western consciousness works that’s the problem. Seeing parts as the primary reality out of which the whole is contrived is said to be an error. Individual people, nations, insects, plants, and animals simply “do not exist in and by themselves”. The primacy of the whole and its organic order.

Refusing the notion of the whole externally assembled, he sees the whole as parts growing mutually from within. Gestalt theory speaks in this connection of a “dynamic self-distribution” of parts: the whole, neither the sum, nor more than the sum, of its parts, arises pre-cisely in and as the self-governing action of its parts. Order arises spontaneously from within a whole, it isn’t imposed from outside. The parts order themselves. Parts ordering themselves, that’s what a whole is; that’s what reality is. A whole thus stands in no need of an external controller. be the whole my body, the immediate environment, or nature as a whole (the universe).

No ego is needed to watch over and bring order to an otherwise chaotic body. No Supreme Ego—be it God or Modem Man—is needed to watch over and bring other to the universe. Both the body and the universe, unfolding spontaneously, are quite capable. Nor are the ego and its environment found to be separate and opposed to one another. The ego is thus no longer seen as having the responsibility of managing the environment.

The parts of the body naturally unfold as a unified, integrated whole. So do the constituents of nature. And so do the body and the environment. They too form a single unified and integrated whole. Our skin, rather than a bawler between us and the rest of reality, is a bridge uniting us with everything that is not ourselves. The ego and the environment as forming a broader unity, a unity, as will be seen, that finally embraces all of reality. Reality, when listened to, is a natural whole.

The ego is bondage to the past, out of which it is constructed, and to the future, for which alone it lives. The only way to make sense out of a changing order of things is to change with it.

This Self is one with the infinite or indefinable Self. The infinite is the “total Knower of the universe”: infinite consciousness, omniscience. The infinite is timeless. spaceless, and sinless. Thus, the finite ego is the known, and the infinite Self is the Knower.

The existence of the finite human being (ego) depends on the fact that he or she is not separate and apart from the infinite. from God—the true Self, our true Self. Rather is God in space and time as everything else. In Hinduism. God is the sole experiencer, the only knower and seer . The human being as Self is the infinite in the process of identifying with the finite ego. The Self is infinite. The ego is not.

Mystical experience centers in the realization of identity: the identity of the finite ego-object and the infinite knowing subject or Self. Upon the Self’s realization of its true identity, however, the ego with which the Self has identified does not go away. There is no loss of individuality. But individual consciousness and existence are now experienced as a temporary point of view taken by something immeasurably greater than the individual.

In the experience of the ego’s identity with the infinite, the individual realizes that what he or she is has always been what everything else is. The finite retains its reality, but by comparison with the infinite, it is as nothing. The finite personality of the individual is by no means abolished. then, by the realization of identity. Religious traditions teach that the more the finite personality is related to the infinite by way of subordination. “the more intensely personal and unique it becomes”.

The experience of the infinite underlying our existence, far from depersonalizing us, individualizes us down to our truest selves. The self-conscious attempt to develop one’s personality is in fact a recent trend in Christianity. Personality doesn’t prosper by dint of hard work, any more than happiness results from the search for happiness. Consciousness as a field, an “integrated pattern of energy” . In this field there may be any number of points of view. The field is the infinite Reality, and “my” consciousness one restricted area or viewpoint. As a Self, the individual human being is the field in the process of containing a point of view.

The finite universe, from the mythological point of view— means from the point of view of Vedanta—is forever being cre-ated by a cosmological game of hide-and-seek or “lost and found.” Every aspect of life is an image in miniature of a single cosmic drama: the self-abandonment and self-realization of infinite Reality in the finite order. In reality, the infinite is said to remain undivided.

The Eternal Now

Realization is said to be an intensely clear attention to the “now,” to things as they are, rather than as they are named. The now, is the “door of heaven”. “Eternity is now.” Now is what is, all there ever is. It is from attention to the now, That all other knowledge is elaborated through reflection. Anyone who has any understanding of the eternal Reality, will see life as it actually flows before him or her, and thus will live mostly in the present.

When there is only now, everything is seen as infinite. In the light of the “Eternal Now,” the universe of bodily things is “divinity itself”. Living in this way is said to mean an expanded and deepened awareness of the moment, without preconceived judgments or ideas about reality.

Living in the now means being open and completely receptive to each moment in all its newness and uniqueness. The present is experienced as the only reality, and the world at this very moment is seen to be just what it should be, just right (compare above “Rightness”).

With each now thus lived completely, the individual experiences a deep sense of personal fulfillment. Experiencing this way means no longer being fascinated with the names given to things—labels, it has been seen, are but interpretations based on the past. Having no past, the eternal Self has no memory—has no need of memory.

The consciousness of the Self is strictly a now-consciousness, unfettered by the limitations of time—past, present, and future are simultaneous in the eternal Self and leave no traces. Ego-consciousness, that complex of memories (past) and anticipations (future), by contrast, is bondage to time. Living the Eternal Now is being liberated from time, and at the same time from ego-consciousness. The present is sizeless. There is only room for the infinite, not for the ego. Living in eternity projects living in the present.

For many people meditation is difficult to understand and many give up after their first few attempts, but nothing comes easily in life. First we need to have sincere aspiration to realize the Self and know God. Secondly, we need to persevere with our practice by making a conscious effort until we succeed in experiencing the fruits of deep meditation — inner peace, inner joy, divine energy and deep calmness.

Meditation certainly contributes to our physical, mental and emotional well-being, but the true aim is to go beyond the limits of the finite mind and free ourselves from its thought waves (vrittis). In other words, it involves quietening the movements of the mind, bringing it to a state of undisturbed silence, to realize and express that pure consciousness which is the reflection of God within us.

When the thought waves are brought under control, and the mind becomes quiet, then we are able to experience the higher states of consciousness, in which the light of consciousness, turned in upon itself, can experience divine union with God.

In this elevated state of consciousness one transcends the mind, intellect and ego-sense to experience the true nature of the Self, which is Sat-Chit-Ananda (ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new bliss). It is impossible to know and realize our true nature, the Self (the inner knower, which is self-existent) with our limited senses and intellect.

The human mind, which is formed by thoughts, ideas, desires, memories and imagination is finite and cannot possibly fathom the infinite reality. The mind, being a subtle force of matter, creates its own world of experiences and relationships to objects according to its desire. Through desire, attachment, a sense of ego, ignorance and misidentification with the mind, body and senses, we experience suffering, pain and unhappiness.

Through misidentification and forgetfulness dour true nature as spiritual beings we lose awareness of the Self, the very source of inner happiness, inner peace and inner joy. As spiritual beings made in the likeness and image of God we are endowed with an innate capacity to completely awaken to and realize the pure Bliss-consciousness of the soul and our conscious relationship with the Infinite. Meditation awakens us to know and realize our true spiritual nature here and now. Through meditation we re-establish our true spiritual identity and remember our eternal loving relationship with God.

We realize through meditation that we are not the physical form, mind, intellect, ego or senses. We realize that heaven is within, that it is not a place that we go to after death, but a consciousness of God, that can be realized and experienced here and now in this moment. Meditation brings us to the realization that God is above and beyond the conception of the finite mind, that nothing exists outside Him, that in Him we live, move and have our being, and that nothing in this finite world can give us the inner security, inner strength, inner peace, inner joy, love, happiness, freedom, complete satisfaction and lasting fulfil-ment that is in Him. Meditation is the direct way to knowing and realizing that we are one with the Infinite.

The West has accepted only objective experience. They think that within the objective uni-verse you will be able to see the infinite Spirit. That you can not. Therefore, science is trying to realize the Infinite with the objective method of science. But when you become illumined you will realize that Consciousness is not connected with your finite self, but with your infinite Self. And that can be possible only when you have accepted an illumined soul as your guru.

Therefore, when you are thinking from an intellectual frame of reference, then you create a body and a mind, or matter and the mind, and that is called Dualism. Descartes also emphasized this dualism of matter and mind. But matter is changing, the mind is also changing; both come under the same category. What is changeless? The West has not accepted it. The change-less is not the mind. The changeless is the Divine state.

Oneness and identity will remove all fears from your heart when you think in terms of the Infinite. The knots of the heart will be cut asunder when man sees God as the very Soul of his soul, the very Spirit of his very existence. It is the Spirit that gives power to the mind to think and body to live. You will interpret this Spirit to be finite when you are ignorant, but it will be infinite when you become illumined. Therefore, remove the darkness of ignorance and realize the truth of enlightenment by living a moral and spiritual life which will enable you to be fearless.

The God whom you worship is your real Self. The personal God is the hidden Self. We objectify him and worship him. But when you transcend the subject/object difference there is absolute identity. So, fear is the greatest enemy of man. And the cause of fear is the fear of the unknown; that is, we do not know the future. The past, present, and future will remain when we are ignorant, but not when we become illumined. This is the difference between the philosophical outlook of the East and the West. It is seen in their concepts of time. Time is real according to Western Theology. This is the view called “the linear view of time.” Here, God created time and then time comes to an end, the world will come to an end, and then there will be a second coming of Christ. This is the way they think!

Time is Maya. Maya means relative existence. When you are thinking through the mind there is time. But when you transcend mind there is no time. The ego is working with time through the mind, and the infinite self through no-mind and timelessness of the present “NOW”.

“Evolution belongs to nature, perfection belongs to Spirit. Realize your true nature and be perfect.” Following him, then finally all your troubles will be over. Your long searches in temples and churches, in books and synagogues, will end. Man will have to make the return journey and find, to his great surprise, that He whom he searched for everywhere in the world, the nearest of the near, the dearest of the dear, is his very Self, is the very basis and background of his Consciousness; is his living Existence.

We have come here to earth to attain freedom. Freedom from what? Freedom from old age, disease, and death. Why are you afraid of death? Because you are ignorant. Because you identify yourself with your psycho-physical being, with your apparent self. All troubles will cease when you liquidate your ignorance and renounce your attachment to the flesh, attachment to your body/mind mechanism, and realize your infinite nature, your per-fect nature, your immortal nature.

The Conquest of Fear

Western civilization is predominately a dualistic civilization. A dualistic civilization creates fear in the mind of the individual. Therefore, as long as the West thinks in terms of this dualism between man and God, fear will never disappear from the mind of the western man. Fear will disappear only when western man and western woman raises his or her consciousness to a higher level and realizes the truth that man in his true nature is infinite, not finite. Man is finite when he is ignorant. Man is infinite when he is illumined.

Two doctrines: one, the Divinity of man; and second, the oneness of all existence. As long as you create a distinction between man and woman; as long as you feel the distinction between East and West; as long as you create a distinction berween man and God, you will not be able to remove the presence of fear from your consciousness.

A guru is not a man; guru is a state of consciousness. And that state of consciousness is timeless; that state of consciousness is nondual.

“When a person wants to go somewhere, what does it mean? Really, he only goes from his real Self to the non-Self, since all worlds are changing, thus unreal. “Coming and going is all pure delusion. The soul never comes nor goes. Where is the place to which it shall go, when all of space is in the soul? When shall be the time of entering or departing, when all time is in the soul?”

Therefore, Advaita does not accept movement to be real. All movement is dreamlike. In the realm of relativity, Advaita accepts only one thing: discovery — discovery of the Truth which will make a person free from the tyranny of old age, disease, and death. It´s past time for men and women to think not only in terms of manhood and womanhood, or a mere biological way of thinking, or historical way of thinking, but rather the Transcendental way of thinking. In other words, man and woman should think in terms of immortality, infinity, and uncreated nature. The moment you think that God created man, you break several laws of spirituality. That it is not that God created man, but that man creates God in his mental image. A dualistic experience is when you are body conscious, But when you are conscious of your Atman, your real nature, that is a pure spiritual experience and then there is no distinction between the two.

And that immortality can be attained only when you have realized that your true nature is not finite, but infinite. Your true nature is not mortal, but immortal. Your true nature is not imperfect, but perfect. Yours is the oneness of existence. You enter into diversity when you think of this relative world.

But absolute oneness, absolute identity — that which will remove all fears from your heart — removes the mirage of this world. And then the knots of your heart will be cut asunder. All the doubts will be broken into shreds when man sees God as the very Life of his life, as the very Soul of his soul, as the very Spirit of pure Existence.

It is this Spirit that causes the mind to think and the body to live. This spirit is Yogic fire. When it burns, the mind and body will be transcended, and you will become illumined. Where will your fear be then?

Each time, the experience of transcending from the finite into the Infinite will be newness, absolute freshness. Each encounter, performed through simplicity, weakens the egocentric structure that we have built and whose prisoners we are, causing our unhappiness and the unhappiness of the entire world. The frequency of the moments lived in this manner will finally demolish the walls of the ego. After this happy event, our being will be led by the Divine Spark within us, directing us through Love, Beauty and creative Intelligence.

⦁ Without the ego we are able to see beyond the veil of time-space.
⦁ Time disappears when your attention is taken away from the belief that you are a body.
⦁ When you observe in present-time, the veil of ignorance is neutralized, The now moment is eternity, there is no past and future in the reality of your soul’s unlimited existence,
⦁ The ego is bondage to the past, out of which it is constructed, and to the future, for which alone it lives.
⦁ The ego invests heavily in the past, and in the end believes that the past is the only aspect of time that is meaningful.
⦁ We have been programmed to look backward or forward in time (past-future). Only when we are in the present can we create the future.
⦁ Therefore, the ego tries to make the future like the past, and avoid the present.
⦁ The belief in hell is what prevents you from understanding the present, because you are afraid of it.
⦁ The ego tries to make the future like the past, and avoid the present. The Holy Spirit teaches thus: There is no hell. Hell is only what the ego has made of the present. The belief in hell is what prevents you from understanding the present, because you are afraid of it.

The most prevalent conscious fear is that of physical survival because the body is believed to be the primary reality of life. We fear death because we are unsure of what comes after it.

“Whosoever realizes that which manifests within us as the conscious Self, attains to immortality.” Death means a change of the body. The body may die, the mind may die, the senses may die, but pure knowledge can never die. When we know that something is dying and if we do not identify ourselves with it, but become conscious of our absolute Self, then we are sure to attain to immortality. If we once grasp the idea that we are the Absolute Being, how can we ever be changed by death into a non-being? As being cannot come out of non-being, so it cannot go back to non-being. Pure existence can never become non-existence; this is the proof of immortality.

The Inner Self was never born. It will never die or ever change. It can´t be created because it has always exist.

Your inner soul knows you are eternal. You are formless in that part of yourself and have no boundaries. Without boundaries there is no birth, no death. What was born will die, what was never born, can never die. Your sacred self was never born! Your sacred self will never die! Knowing this in a way that leaves no room for doubt will greatly enable your sacred quest. When you reach that state, knowing that who you are is the unchanging self, you will be “on purpose” in your life.

It is not born; it does not die; it does not grow; it does not decline; it does not change. It is eternal. Even if this body is destroyed it does not cease to exist, just as the space in a pot does not become extinct when the pot is broken.

We have been teach and programmed to believe in the physical dying nature of Being, and not the undying nature of Soul/Spirit.

Only the young, and perhaps the very foolish, are not aware that they are on a downhill slide to old age and eventual death. That is the inevitable nature of all physical beings. Existence in a body of flesh and bone is limited to a length of time. Still, we all possess an undying soul that transcends those limitations. It is renewed and quickened, not by food or air, but by a steadfast, unmovable faith.

The true humanity is found in ‘the soul,” and that soul is already immortal.

The soul seeks a inner immortality in consciousness that involves going beyond the form-based body and thought-based mind. The ego seeks to continue its worldly drives and ambitions by renewing the body. The soul seeks for true immortality beyond the body. The ego wants to make immortal that which is inherently mortal and wants to prolong the body as long as it can. often even if unwell.

The ego is rooted in the fear of death. The soul meanwhile is not afraid of death but only of ignorance or lack of awareness. The soul is happy to discard the body if the body is too old or unwell and can no longer serve as a useful vehicle for its inner growth. For the soul the loss of the physical body is just a change of clothes, not a loss of its essence. Even if we are pursuing longevity and rejuvenation, we should not fear the inevitable death of the body.

We should use the life of the body to pursue the immortality of the soul, which as eternal life is the source of all real healing as well. This immortality of the soul does not consist of long lasting physical existence but of realizing that our true nature of pure awareness never dies. More important than learning how to live longer is learning how to reconcile ourselves with the inevitability of our own death.

If we learn to die every day to the ego. then our entire lives will be rooted in immortality. We cannot make what is inherently mortal, namely our ego and desire based life and identity, immortal, though this is pre-cisely what most of us want and are seeking in our so-called pursuit of immortality. We want our physical personality to continue beyond its normal time range, even if we have not properly cared for our bodies. What we need to discover for real immortality is the higher awareness within us that never takes birth, which is unborn and without form or desire. This exists on the other side of death, not on this side!

One can only know the immortal Self by dying to the mortal self and ego. One can only enter into the pure consciousness beyond death by letting go of the mind and its attachments in the field of time. To think that we can make our ordinary personality immortal is but wish-ful thinking, an attempt to prolong a shadow into light.

The key to immortality is to die willingly while alive, which is to die to the ego or bodily identity even while the body persists. Through dying inwardly while alive, one gains an immortality even beyond death. We must learn to die daily to the known and limited, accepting our outer lives are but an offering to the inner spirit. Then everyday will be a new birth into eternity.

The spiritual journey is from death to immortality, combining a preliminary phase of death to the outer world in order to lead us to an inner immortality.

Only that within us that dwells in a state of perfect peace can go beyond death and gain immortality.

Death, in fact, is an illusion, perhaps the greatest of all illusions.

No one has ever really died and no one ever will really die. Death is but a change of clothes for the immortal soul that cannot be diminished by any external action or agency.” Our true being, is inherently beyond all death and suffering. It is only because of our false identification with the body and mind that we fall under the illusion of death.

This means that we need not fear death, which is but a moment in time, but should lift our sense of who we are beyond any outer time based identities to immutable consciousness itself. It is only on the basis of an inner sense of deathlessness that any lasting rejuvenation can be possible, not out of a fear of death or an attempt to avoid death. In affirming the deathlessness of our inner being, we can access its powers of immortality.

Realization of our immortal Self is possible for all of us, though like-ly to be attained by very few, as it requires going beyond the ordinary human mind, emotions and attachments. Rejuvenation of the mind, at least to some degree, is not difficult for all of us if we but seriously take up Yoga and meditation practices. Rejuvenation of the body, similarly, is something that we are all capable of at least to some degree. Yet for all of these to be truly beneficial and efficacious, our mindset must change. We must look within. We must work on ourselves. We must connect with the greater universe of consciousness and also look into our inner being and its treasures of the unknown, the great mystery that is both life and death, and which carries and unites both together in an ongoing transformative process of cosmic existence.

To truly move from the stage in which we chase a dead world, to the one in which we embrace our immortality, we must detach from our ego, our personal needs and our beliefs.

Neither the intellect nor the ego has any essential connection with the eternal soul, and what binds the soul to nature. The ego´s creation of distortions; man´s mind is not limited by his physical body, although he usually thinks it is. But it is the intellect and the ego that bind him there.

We fear death because we are unsure of what comes after it. The ego don´t know Spirit because the ego state of duality can access the state of Oneness without be dissolved, so the ego and five senses is limited to understand the physical three dimensional world and reality. Because of this lack of awareness within the ego we are unsure of what comes after death and this lack of knowledge is the basic understanding for fear of death.

When the ego wants make the future as the past it actually blocks the vision of the inner spiritual world.

The ego is driven by fear: fear of not fitting in, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of loss of power or prestige.

Fear of not being good enough, fear of failing others, fear of losing a home, fear of getting sick, fear of being alone, even fear of having nothing to do (which we call boredom).

Fear of the unknown, fear of suffering, fear of loneliness, and fear of personal extinction. .The “fear” that man has is not of this natural process of change, but of the extinction of his “ego.

The ego fears loss of its illusory sovereignty, which is actually only grandiosity.

If one reaches the stage where one begins to see the folly of Ego, then there is fear of losing the Ego, and fear is one of its last weapons

Until you lose your Me you cannot see God ‘ s face

ego will pass away one day, for it is a separate, false identity that will begin to lose power after the physical body passes.

Fear seems to have many causes. Fear of loss, fear of failure, fear of being hurt, and so on, but ultimately all fear is the ego’s fear of death, of annihilation. To the ego, death is always just around the corner. In this mind-identified state, fear of death affects every aspect of your life.

All fears become easier to banish once the big fear is dealt with. Accepting that you will die eventually, and that fact is neither good nor bad, frees up a lot of positive energy.

If you will to do this, then you need to trace the root of those fears (fear of being fired, fear of being homeless, fear of rejection) to the real source of all fear: the fear of personal extinction. If you can accept your own eventual demise and, in doing so largely banish, your fear of it, then the influence of all other fears on your life fades.

The ego is a fear-based, dualistic thought system that reveals the “false self.” It is the insecure self. It is what triggers fear, doubt, separation, jealousy, anger, control, and pride. It is what keeps many people from recognizing their true identity, their true spiritual essence. Beyond ego, we are fearless, infinite spiritual beings.

So anyone who is identified with their mind and, therefore, disconnected from their true power, their deeper self rooted in Being, will have fear as their constant companion. The number of people who have gone beyond mind is as yet extremely small, so you can assume that virtually everyone you meet or know lives in a state of feat

Fear of death keeps us bound by our fear for our life and self. We become bound in life by our fear of death. which is a threat to life. Life is then lived in fear of death. So. death then becomes the fear for our life. This is the very hold of life, the very hold that life has on us that we must break. As long as life poses any threat which takes away our courage to live and puts us in fear of losing, we then, like a ghost, remain stuck and fixed to what we cling to in life, with no hope of release or an afterlife, that is. a future life.

The ego isn’t in touch with life, so how can it trust it? The ego fears both life and death, so the the ego living in the area of mistrust.

Fear finds its roots in the ego’s self-protection. The ego fears both life and death, because both are threatening to its survival. Ego- survives on its constructs, on its concepts of threat, of enemy. We live in the illusion of our separateness, which is always under threat, always in danger of crumbling if we don’t maintain it, defend it, and—if we have the strength—expand it.

The ego fears the loss of conscious existence, and its final surrender means facing ‘the great unknown’. The last step, therefore, requires great courage, faith, and the conviction of the truth of the great teachers. The core of the ego is then relinquished by Divine Grace, and the revelation that it ensures erases the last vestige of fear because its source has been removed.

Our ego fears the opening of this tremendous abyss, or void, where “I will not be anybody.” That is the irony. Here you are fearing being nobody when this way of being nobody is your identity: the space, the pause.

Life’s challenges draw the choice to renew ourselves or hold on tight in fear of the unknown. Each time we cling on to old ways our ego is facing the fear of its own death. The ego has tunnel vision and is unable to see the broader truths. It is unable to see that when it lets go, its small self is lovingly enveloped in the high self and drawn into a more expansive reality. The death of ego is not a loss. When we let go, the energy that was once invested in staying small, predictable, and re-stricted joins the dynamic, life-giving river that flows through us. This leads us to become more of ourselves.

We fear being set free into a sea of contentment, and we switch our energy to fear of rejection as a lifetime theme.

WE all have it. We are all unified in our denial of its existence, as well as our universal acceptance to paint fear as existing somewhere other than in ourselves—or our part in creating this every day in our minds and projecting it into our lives and into the lives of others. Some fears are bigger than others, and some are so big that they run the program. The magnitude of fear in our lives is not measured by how weak or how strong we are as humans, for this is a purely human measurement system. It is by how much we as humans give way to fear in every area of our lives. We allow fear into our lives in the first place when we buy into the thought that we are imperfect or simply being less than anything else. This is because we are functioning on a three-out-of-four-cylinders-firing syndrome. Our spirits are being excluded from the program, and our personalities are running amuck. Ego is tripping along nicely through its adolescence of invincibility, when it realizes that there is something bigger than it and it is outside the human form.

For as the ego, afraid of transformation, clings rigidly to the “old life,” this very same, hotly defended “old life” turns out to be death, and the death of the ego brought about through transforma-tion proves to be life. In the unwillingness to let go of the old, fear rises, depression arises, for new forces rise up that want access to life and that press against the en-trenched ego. But if the ego surrenders its defensive position and throws itself heroically into the jaws of the dragon of death—into the night sea journey of the sun hero—death proves itself to be life, and surrender of what one had held fast becomes a new way of living and of overcoming fear.

The ego’s fear of death controls us at every turn. The only way to be free from the bondage of the ego is for the ego to die. But the ego’s realization of its own impending doom is the foundation of that fear. The ego fears its own death and, therefore, works hard to be acknowledged and maintain a steady presence. The ego wants us to believe its death means the death of our true self, as well. But there is good news. The body and mind do not have to die along with the ego. By living in the present moment, we limit the ability of the ego. Living this way consistently for a period of time reduces the ego’s control over us and ultimately results in the death of the ego. When the ego no longer has control over us, we are free. This is what spiritualists refer to when they tell us to die while we’re still alive, or to become an awakened dreamer, or as the bible refers to being born again. When the ego is dead, we are more alive than ever before. The death of the body has always been a constant fear of the ego, but where did this fear originate, and why do we harbor it?

That which is born of the earth will inevitably return to the earth; that which is real has always been, and can never die. The fear of death goes back to the very first human beings who lived on earth. We have believed ourselves to be detached from our source and allowed the egoic mind to be the supreme base of logic. Death must have been a terrifying event for those early humans witnessing it for the first time. This was when the ego cinched its claws in and tried with every effort to hold onto this futile, incomprehensible life. To this day, preserving this physical body, and keeping this life has been the sole purpose of the ego and a furtherance of the madness within our societies. The ego thrives on fear, and fear originated from death. Before the very first death was witnessed, there was nothing to fear. Death gave birth to fear, because it appeared so final and so permanent to a mind that didn’t comprehend its own divinity. Death to the body means death to the ego. Instead of knowing death is nothing more than a transition, the ego has made death the enemy of life, a life the ego sees as tangible in the physical realm of things. In reality, life is what we are essentially, the infinite energy of Space that can never die. Death is nothing more than the shedding of this garment that we call a body and being free of the limitations of this world. Death is not the end of anything; death is a release.

Basically, as our divine spirit, or soul, evolves in consciousness, it becomes restless. Because it is restricted by the limitations of form, it must move beyond the form, therefore relinquishing the need for the body. And the cycle repeats itself. This is why realizing our divinity is so important. The expansion of our consciousness is inevitable, and the sooner we realize this, the sooner we can make the necessary transition from a mind-dominated existence to a purposeful, divine existence.

What does ego fear most? Its own death. Where is that? In the future. So of course ego is happiest with endless variations on the past. Then the ego fears fears its own death in futue it want´s make future as the past. We have been programmed to look backward or forward in time (past-future). Only when we are in the present can we create the future. Therefore, the ego tries to make the future like the past, and avoid the present. The belief in hell is what prevents you from understanding the present, because you are afraid of it. The ego disconnects the authentic self that resides in the present of the timelessness. When the authentic self is disconnected and the present state of mind is not available its not the auhtentic self that designing the future, but the ego. Who´s will is the ego if the ego is not the real self? The Ego’s main job is to block your awareness of your higher spiritual self. This is how the ego can control the destiny of humans. Only when we are in the present state of “NOW” the authentic self can create the future. Because of this ego construction everything become mass; Mass consciousness is created through concept of fear.

The ego creates mass consciousness and fear controls and fuels the masses of the humankind. With fear follows intimdation and persecution if one not become followers of mass mind contol programming.
