LITTLE EGOS, BIG EGO

Aren’t all the historical “gods”
Just symbolic collections of mass popular cultural “egos”

Intensely promoted so all the little egos have a Big Ego to pray to
And, consequently, be validated – giving “meaning” to their lives.

However, “collective” meaning has no meaning at all.

Both little egos and Big Egos are a waste of time –
Only freedom matters
Because freedom empowers us to address “reality”
Which, by definition, is constantly changing –
And why we need freedom to do likewise.

Actually, God is the only Reality –
There’s really nothing else – since fantasy doesn’t count –
We need freedom to love reality –
Each second, minute, hour, month, year,
And eternity of our lives.

NOT THE PAPER VERSION

If love is the “background reality” of the universe
Then everything else must be fantasy, dreams, or other mental images,
Especially if driven by ambition, desire for fame, or accumulation of power and riches.

If God is love,
Then traditional worship practices, systematic theology, and ancient church structures
Are just so much “straw” out in the fields of spiritual life –

In sum, since love is the only true reality
Why are we talking about anything else?

Of course, when we talk about love –
We’re talking about intelligent love
We’re talking about freedom as a pre-condition to love,
And we’re talking about three-dimensional love –
Not the paper version,

Right?

THE “MYSTICAL” BEATITUDE

Mathew 5:8: “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.”

The pure heart is an “empty” heart
A heart with plenty of room
For God.

The pure heart is a heart without ego
Because living without ego
Enables one to experience life without fantasy.

The Old Testament tells us that anyone who looks “directly” at God
Will immediately die –
And this is true for the ego
Because an ego’s encounter with God will result in its obliteration.

The “true self,” that is, the pure heart, can look at God
All day without harm –
In fact, that’s when the true self gains the power
To live life fully.
