Spiritual egoism. It’s a sin worse than pride. It seems all of us are guilty of this transgression, from the hippie guru, a rabbi, a minister or priest in a church. Recognition of the many faces and facets of spiritual egoism is a positive sign that you are on the journey to fully understanding the battle of love versus hate.
Jesus Christ’s mission was all about “love one another”. But, walking The Path of Spirit Greatness is not a straight one. Spiritual egoism is a slippery slope and only underscores the narrowness of The Way. It seems to be guided. It is a moment to moment scruitany, and this is why the development of discernment in feeling is key. People like to criticize my views by sayjng that I don’t believe in Yeshua. None could be farther from my truth, because my guide stone is Yeshua’s very words: “BE LIKE ME”.
The question is how can we ever fully know what that admonition means in this life? To truly know it requires a transmutation of being: a transmutation of consciousness. However, as much as I desire that ideal, I readily admit that I am not yet ready to commit wholly to that transmutation process … and I question myself about “when” that next step will come to pass.
When will it become easy for me to commit to it? This inquiry has caused many challenges for me, and yes, anguish with the question of not knowing when. This is spiritual imperfection. Frankly, we, each of us, will always and ever not know unless and until we die. This is the big secret!
An out of body experience will not ever be definitive because of the sheer reality that you come back. To “know” means you never return. Nobody gets out alive and THAT is the fear. This is the unity. Looking into Death’s face is no BS and it cannot be sugar-coated.
In this Now, we are still in that embattled state of mind obsessed with “when” … and we are at the pinnacle. The focus of my generation is on what we can illuminate for those coming up behind us: the future generations who are our legacy.
The hubris of knowing is humbling. Thus, we collectively stare into the face of our own mortality and in so doing, we want to be heard because we are now truly of age. Hence, the desperation and fear: the din created by spiritual egoism.
Listen, it will always be someone’s latter days, and so an excuse to shout louder. So, to punctuate the dialogue with spirtual egoism is like pouring gas on the proverbial fire. Now, the “when” is shaping up to appear as the moment when “knowing” will be a platform of mutual agreement. This trigger point we collectively feel and act differently then those who went before us. Two, four, seven generations from now we will tell the story. Are we doomed to remain stuck? It takes constantly stepping back to view the big picture perspective to keep variables straight and in play. In conclusion we are each influenced profoundly by those who were with us during our development years. I also learned that all of us are the ultimate human potential. we can co create our own reality.
