[quote:Anonymous Coward 24760791:MV8yMjAxMjI5XzM3MjkxNjY3XzdGNTVBRTlB] [quote:Smegmatus Rancidosis 32009074:MV8yMjAxMjI5XzM3MjkxNDQ1X0EwRTk3OTVB] No such thing as forsaking the ego or "transcending" it. If ego wasn't part of nature, DNA programming, the soul or personality essence, we wouldn't be born with one. The key is in being able to keep the ego in check, being balanced, honest, humble enough. Too many egos are anywhere from overblown to out-of-control to beyond monstrous, as in that which rules the existing political world. Religion - not to be confused with spirituality - is the original and biggest malevolent force behind problematic egos. [/quote] Haha, no. Your little belief here is just the ego trying to maintain control and stay alive. You like to tell yourself that the ego is just needs to be a better ego. Sorry, that's not "the key." [/quote]
I know a lot of people seek this state, but you don't see a lot of personal accounts. I can say I've glimpsed this state, only to be sucked back into some emotional drama that I begin to identify with and find myself adrift in ego land. I recently had a very difficult heart breaking breakup that GLP helped me with, and it has lead me back into serious meditation and seeking God as my primary goal. It's funny how it takes being brought down so low before we make this a priority. But that is the ego I guess.
So any stories to share? What types of meditation or spiritual practice do you use to seek God/enlightenment? Have you reached this?
