We have been taught to label everything, believing that what you have attached a word to something, you know what it is. The fact is: You don't know what it is. You have only covered up the mystery with a label...
When you look at things or hold it and LET IT BE without imposing a word or mental label on it,
a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you..
Of course we have use words and thought. They have their own beauty---- but do we need to become imprisoned in them.
Words could never explain who we are, or the ultimate purpose of the universe, or even what a tree or stone is in its depth..
I , me, mine are our egos not the witness behind the I.....
The ego tells us who we are, by our work, our history, our story. This is not who we really are.
The ego deals in history and the future not in the present, in the moment..
Learning to live in the moment not our story or what we did, what will do..
Just living one moment at a time.....
Once you awaken, you still use the word "I" but it will come from a deeper place within yourself.
The ego mind is completely conditioned by the past. Its conditioning is twofold: It consist of content (where you come from) and structure (the ego attached itself to it),,
A spiritual practice: Investigate my relationship with the world of things through self-observation, things that are designated with "my"...
You can value and care for things, but when you get attached to them, I will know it ego.
The ego isn't wrong; its just unconscious..
A leap to an entirely different level of Being and, most important, a lessening
Only those who are ready to awaken will awaken, to learn to live in our spiritual conciseness, no longer in our minds (ego conciseness)..
I will learn to become STILL , breath, feel. Stop thinking just be still and listen, not to the voice in my head (the ego) but to the conciseness inside of me..
The easiest way to start learning is being with nature, not naming things just looking and feeling..
You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you and allowing that goodess to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental change in your state of conciseness.... Hindu teaching call this enlightenment, teachings of Jesus is called salvation, and in Buddhism it is the end of suffering...
What a liberation that the voice in my head is not who I am.. Who am I then-- the one who see that , the witness to my living.
The ego rules not only our own seperate lives but there is an ego conciseness, a collective dysfunction of the human mind which is destroying our world. The more people who become aware and change their own conciseness the better the world will be..

As I read the book A New Earth and do the workshop
with Eckhart and Oprah..
We are on Chapter 7 as of tonight.
I have had quite a few AHA moments.
I am learning to be in the present moment.
I have to always try to be the observer in my life.
I have to accept the moment surrender to it...This is my journey........
