I have been stuck on where to start with these writings. These articles are the foundational information we will continually point back to when describing things as to not be redundant. After some thought, and going back and forth between a few ideas in mind, ego comes first. The topics refer to the same subject but ego being grander and a bigger root in the issue many are having so we shall start here.
What is it that is holding many back from grasping this new information or any information? Why is it that people allegedly understand yet, their actions show otherwise? The phrase “you need to study more;” “you need to know ‘who you are’ ” and any thing of a similar context is continually being said when people are seeking help/understanding/remedy. Why are many claiming to be a “creditor” yet, there actions say otherwise? The answer from my perspective is easy…ego. Many talk about the ego and how it’s “bad” or whatever else they say about this aspect of the mind. The end goal is to transcend the ego, but how? It’s not as easy as saying “I have no ego” which sounds like an egotistical statement it self (just like “I’m a creditor”).
I could tell you how I have overcome this aspect of the mind, but the issue is self-preservation…of the ego. It will not let go that easy. Those voices in your mind will start to create an enemy of me as it feels threatened from the words on this page. It comes down to death. Death? Yes, death, metaphorically speaking (and literally to a degree). I will leave you with this to ponder and understand:
boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
All the things mentioned and more are probably major components of one’s ability (or lack there of) to learn to be a trustee of their life or anything for that matter. Get control of you’re ego one way or another. One cannot realize their full potential and evolve without doing so. And if you feel otherwise, you have proven my point, as you wouldn’t be here reading this.
