The biggest lie we have all be lead to believe is that we are all separate. We have been told that we are all separate from each other, and separate from the God of our understanding (e.g.: You are not like me, you are better, or worse, etc. You are a different race. You are from a rival school, city, state, country, religion. God is in heaven, space, on a throne, in a book, on an altar, in a piece of bread. My God is better, bigger, stronger, more right than your God!).
Who has told us this lie? Our own conscious ego (AKA the Devil, Satan). Why has our own conscious ego told us this? Survival. Our own conscious ego does not want to give up control of the Self. For spiritual progress of our souls to occur this idea, thought, fear, MUST be transcended. For the human race to make the transition from thinking man to spiritual man - the next level of our evolution - the conscious ego must be put in its place. The place of the conscious ego is as our helper to gain permanent experiences in the physical life that we can take with us eternally. The conscious ego in it proper un-inflated out-of-control place is a good thing. Without it we would not get out of bed in the morning. We would not get off the couch to go to bed in the evening (is this akin to the chicken or the egg? LOL) Without motivation from the conscious ego we would not have the drive and desire needed to continue living.
The TRUTH is that on a spiritual (subconscious and superconscious) level we are all connected to each other and to the entire universe. The God of my understanding is a part of me - and you - not something separate from me and you that I/we cannot experience. We can, and many do experience the presence of a Universal Spirit every day. Those that have made the decision to discipline themselves in the ultimate endeavor of achieving enlightenment experience “heaven on earth”. The more awareness we have, the more we have attempted to transcend the control of the conscious ego, the more we are aware of these experiences and know them for what they truly are - Yahweh, Azura Mazda, Allah, God consciousness.
The ultimate goal of each and every soul is to become like our Creator. This is ingrained into our very being and resides in the superconscious part of mind - the seed of creation lies there. (It manifests itself in the physical experience when we want to grow up and become like our parents.) The first step on the path of our destiny as spiritual man is to overcome the control of the conscious ego. My experience starting on this path was finally reaching a point in my life of complete surrender. Once I COMPLETELY surrendered, once I cried out “I need help, I cannot do this on my own!” is the moment in physical and spiritual time that I became in alignment and acceptance of the laws which govern the universe. That is when I started getting help from the Universal Spirit, and Universal Laws came to my aid. That is when I made the first step to transcend and overcome my conscious ego. That is when I began to trudge the road of happy destiny that I am still trudging on today.
God Bless You!
