: I quite agree with everything you have said
: here today. Scary, but that is the way I
: sees it.
: The ego is simply a false sense of self.
: For me it all comes down to my search for
: truth. For most of us the truth is a
: boogieman. A taboo. You don't really want to
: know the truth Butcho, that you are God.
: Stay asleep. Keep pretending things are
: different than they are. Don't spoil the
: party, the masquerade ball. Be a good chap
: and play your part like the rest of us.
: Nobody likes a party-pooper.
: Well, I decided long ago that I care more
: about the truth than I do whether or not I
: am liked or not.
: The lie that the ego has fallen for is that
: all is numerically one. All is a singular
: object. No such object exists. All is not
: One. All is a unitive one. The game being
: played is not Solitaire nearly so much as it
: is a game of Hearts. There is more than one
: of us, but we are not separate from each
: other. Kind of like the Judeo/Christian idea
: of God being a Triune Being, a Trinity.
: Father, son, and holy ghost. Only more so.
: We are each a part of that which has no
: parts. The Tao for lack of a better word. A
: whole that is greater than the sum of its
: parts. More than One, but undivided.
: Nondual. Not two in the relative sense.
: If there is a lie from Hell this is it.
: There is only One of us. No thing could be
: further from the truth. The One is not a
: full return for it cannot be separated from
: the Many. The tao that can be separated is
: not the eternal Tao.
: It is time for the illusions of the egoistic
: mind to come to an end so that the real
: festivities can begin. Existence is
: infinitely greater than anything the ego can
: dream up. All the ego can do is line up
: ducks and then congratulate itself on the
: fine job it has done. Our essential nature
: makes ducks out of rocks and water. Makes
: galaxies out of no thing at all. Boring,
Butcho, reading yours, seeking truth, I realize to me "truth" seems to be about concepts, which are true, which are false, so I have more the sense of trying to see "reality"...which, of course, is really looking for what's "true".
Words, arrrgghhhh! :-)
