The Ego is a “Drama-Queen”… But it isn’t YOU

March 23, 2014 - 2 Responses

dramaqueen

A dear friend of mine called his fiancee a “drama queen.” I smiled and said, “EVERY ego is a born drama queen.” Meaning that we ALL have an ego, and thus a “drama queen” in our midst. The freedom lies in seeing it is not YOU. Once you know it’s not YOU, you know it is not OTHERS as well. Why? Because we aren’t anything.

The Illusion of Freewill

March 14, 2014 - 3 Responses

free-will

Freewill is an illusion, but due to egoic identity very few are able to clearly see this. As I wrote about in my “5 Myths about Enlightenment” article, the wave is going wherever the ocean “decides” (and even this is not accurate as ALL is simply happening spontaneously and causelessly, i.e. LIFE does not “think”, rather it simply happens!).

There have already been a number of “scientific studies” that demonstrate that thought arrives as late as 6 seconds AFTER our brain has already sent the order for the body to take a certain action.
Another way to see this is simply to realize that you don’t know what your next thought is going to be, so how do you know what you are going to do next??

I understand that for most the idea of not having freewill sounds horrible/depressing, but the truth is you’ve NEVER had it, so what has changed? LIFE has always decided all and in fact not believing this is so is also LIFE! And, if my words have not convinced you, no worries. As Wayne Liquorman says, “Fine, if you think you have freewill than good for you… go use it!”
