Contemplating about this experience

“All the teachers, scriptures, knowledge, the Guru and any other way to disentangle ourselves from what’s not real, converge eventually in the very Essence, the Source out of which everything sprung out, the mother hen calling back her chicks.”

There is something that tricks us, it’s us, our very (lower-) mind, that we are constantly falling for,.. thoughts and feelings that are not even ours. They’re constantly demanding something, wanting something, continuously judging , defending, fighting, struggling for something or someone. That is definitely not us, it’s a shadow of darkness that plays our roles and because we are too lazy and ignorant to take control we let it rule us. It’s the thing called the ego, the shadow self, the lower mind, the demon within.

Our entire life we’re just watching this entity tricking us into a belief that it is our true self, and we fall for its needs, desires and suggestions, diving deeper and deeper into the darkness, falling more and more into the pit of forgetfulness, surrendering more and more our free will and allowing this entity full control over our bodies, lives and destinies.

Our true essence is the very Light that illuminates the sun, the spark of fire that ignited all fire, the Primordial One, the Eternal and Absolute One. Since That is within us, is there anything else worth fighting for, looking for, craving for, other than finding and remembering our true Essence?

Is there any worth in ephemeral pursuits that even when acquired instead of satiating us, they’re only igniting more and more desires and push us for more struggle and misery? Isn’t it obvious that we are just a squirrel running in a wheel, stupidly believing that will reach some distant point by running faster?

Desires promote more desires and fulfillment of one will open several other doors for other desires to be created. Altruistic desires are the first level to becoming selfless and getting rid of the fetters of the shadow self. Eventually all desires should subside, and the identification with “me” and “mine” should dizolve too, then we open up to realizing that we are not limited to this ephemeral body that we’re inhabiting, but we are indeed infinite and everything is within us.
