"Ego Death is required to merge with God. Buddha, Krishna and Jesus all taught that the ego must be removed in order for God to be revealed. Love is the most potent destroyer of the ego. The anti Christ is the ego. Mysticism is the path of finding the direct experience of God.
There is only one Christ appearing as Jesus, Buddha and Krishna. The second coming of Christ has to do with the discovery of the Christ that is within us all. To love Christ is to become Christ. The supreme wisdom lies at the heart of every being. Spiritual metaphysics is the practice of seeking God within one's self. Inner peace and happiness are the goal of Christian mysticism. The esoteric mysteries are revealed in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, Buddha and Krishna. Every major religion can be connected.
We can call on Jesus, Krishna or Buddha to assist us in our pursuit of enlightenment. Jesus is lord, Krishna is lord and Buddha is lord because they are all emanations of the same Christ Consciousness. The teachings of Jesus, Buddha and Krishna are essentially the same. There is no need for the world religions to compete with one another.
Spirituality is like the depths of the ocean while religion is the surface. It is easy to favorably compare Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism if one realizes the unity of all life. Christian quotes can be linked directly to Buddha quotes and Krishna quotes. Jesus Christ taught the path of love as did Krishna and Buddha. The blood of Jesus Christ is love. Spiritual awareness is what is needed for enlightenment. Esoteric Jesus is the hidden or inner path. " http://www.jesus-christ.ws/ego_death/ego_death.html
Then why do all of the venerated and worshiped figures of religion are taught by its self proclaimed and State sanctioned "wise and holy" men that no one can attain to the likeness or be like the saviors the common folk pay homage and tithe to. The figures are "much too holy for me or you to be equal" to in any way so the clergy people will for a price be the middle men/women for us as vicar or intercessory.
We are suppose to "believe that this cleric can speak for us to a unspecified concept of God because they have gone to a private university that specializes in in-doctrinating these people into their flavor the holy books hermeneutics interpretations. They in turn teach their congregations to submit to government and us rank in file goyum can not ever be like the long dead prophets we are spose to worship as gods, but my yavh---did these men not come from a woman's birth canal, eat, shit, and die as we all have and will?
I say if any man can defecate his pants then so can I
We are taught only the holy shit--- that only "spacial" people or one in a billion every 1000 years can achieve ego death or spiritual freedom from the bondage of illusion. So everyone till Now has stayed in the ranks and done their small part to maintain the lies and hierarchy and keep the wise Priest who preaches "submit" to the Beast no matter what as long as the illusion is maintained and dream kept alive and economy's are strong. The Priest and Theocrocist's in turn keep their retirement funds as the Church/synagogues/Mosque's and Temples are tax exempt as the government approved 501c3 organizations. Now No 501c3 will dare speak out publicly against the beast and loose good marks. The Beast may take their mark away.
Truth is we all are but drops in a ocean of consciousness. All one needs to to do is expand the size of your drop and loose the illusions and lies we have been told to keep us in our assigned seats. Our school is the universe city and all wisdom and understanding is beyond any of our grasps but is flowing in the very currents we live in. Ego death re-legions us with the real and natural and self all who legion them self to exspanding consciousness.
We are one legion and I am one of many.
A River refuses no rain and the ocean refuses no river.
According to esoteric principles the goal of evolution (unfoldment) and ego death is to master life, to become people who know who we are and where we are going. Such people know exactly what they are doeing. They see clearly, understanding themselves and conditions around them. Filled with compassion for less progressed beings, they help others learn who they are in the deepest meaning of these words.
Such people help others find, what they themselves have found, their true spititual idenity. For all that, one can only point the way for others since all must find the way and become the way for themselves.
There are seven stages of unfoldment:
1. The mechanical being. One at this stage lives and thats about all.
2. The person is wraped up and fasinated by things perceived.
3. One is wrapped up in emotions and desires whichsensations arouse and seeks out exsperiance.
4. The person has developed intellect by which to plat ways to gain the objects of desire.
5. Spiritual intelligence begins to dawn. One begins to realize there is more to life that what was formaly beleived. It begins to be concerned with understanding things ans sences deeper levalsof consciousness within.
6. Intuistion, wisdom and the sence of oneness which is love become the persons natural state. Knowledge arises spontaneously within.
7.One has become perfected with nature, a fully "enlightend" soul with no more lessons to,learn on earth.
The end is to become more than human. A Dhyan Chohan. Its evolution is now a matter of attaining consciousness on higher and higher planes of cosmic consciousness. New worlds open up andconsciousness unfolds on levals which are as the overtones, as it were, of the seven planes of terrestrial consciousness. Builders, Planetary spiirts, Lipika---these are but a few of the names assigned to those evolving in higher worlds of consciouse life---realms greater and vaster, more all encompassing than can be imagined by the greatest and most holy saint on this speck of mud called earth.
Osho defines it best: "The real can be known only through the false, so the ego is a must. One has to pass through it. It is a discipline. The real can be known only through the illusion. You cannot know the truth directly. First you have to know that which is not true. First you have to encounter the untrue. Through that encounter you become capable of knowing the truth. If you know the false as the false, truth will dawn upon you."
" Ego is a need; it is a social need, it is a social by-product. The society means all that is around you - not you, but all that is around you. All, minus you, is the society. And everybody reflects. You will go to school and the teacher will reflect who you are. You will be in friendship with other children and they will reflect who you are. By and by, everybody is adding to your ego, and everybody is trying to modify it in such a way that you don't become a problem to the society. They are not concerned with you. They are concerned with the society. Society is concerned with itself, and that's how it should be.
They are not concerned that you should become a self-knower. They are concerned that you should become an efficient part in the mechanism of the society. You should fit into the pattern. So they are trying to give you an ego that fits with the society. They teach you morality. Morality means giving you an ego which will fit with the society. If you are immoral, you will always be a misfit somewhere or other. That's why we put criminals in the prisons - not that they have done something wrong, not that by putting them in the prisons we are going to improve them, no. They simply don't fit. They are troublemakers. They have certain types of egos of which the society doesn't approve. If the society approves, everything is good."
One man kills somebody - he is a murderer. And the same man in wartime kills thousands - he becomes a great hero. The society is not bothered by a murder, but the murder should be committed for the society - then it is okay. The society doesn't bother about morality.
Morality means only that you should fit with the society. If the society is at war, then the morality changes. If the society is at peace, then there is a different morality.
Morality is a social politics. It is diplomacy. And each child has to be brought up in such a way that he fits into the society, that's all. Because society is interested in efficient members. Society is not interested that you should attain to self-knowledge.
The society creates an ego because the ego can be controlled and manipulated. The self can never be controlled or manipulated. Nobody has ever heard of the society controlling a self - not possible.
A child comes back to his home - if he has come first in his class, the whole family is happy. You hug and kiss him, and you take the child on your shoulders and dance and you say, "What a beautiful child! You are a pride to us." You are giving him an ego, a subtle ego. And if the child comes home dejected, unsuccessful, a failure - he couldn't pass, or he has just been on the back bench - then nobody appreciates him and the child feels rejected. He will try harder next time, because the center feels shaken.
Ego is always shaken, always in search of food, that somebody should appreciate it. That's why you continuously ask for attention.
You get the idea of who you are from others.
"So you have two centers. One center you come with, which is given by existence itself. That is the self. And the other center, which is created by the society, is the ego. It is a false thing - and it is a very great trick. Through the ego the society is controlling you. You have to behave in a certain way, because only then does the society appreciate you. You have to walk in a certain way; you have to laugh in a certain way; you have to follow certain manners, a morality, a code. Only then will the society appreciate you, and if it doesn't, you ego will be shaken. And when the ego is shaken, you don't know where you are, who you are.
The others have given you the idea. That idea is the ego.
Try to understand it as deeply as possible, because this has to be thrown. And unless you throw it you will never be able to attain to the self. Because you are addicted to the center, you cannot move, and you cannot look at the self.
And remember, there is going to be an interim period, an interval, when the ego will be shattered, when you will not know who you are, when you will not know where you are going, when all boundaries will melt.
You will simply be confused, a chaos.
Because of this chaos, you are afraid to lose the ego. But it has to be so. One has to pass through the chaos before one attains to the real center.
And if you are strong and face it, the period will be short.
But If you are afraid, and you again fall back to the ego, and you again start arranging it, then it can be very, very long; many lives can be wasted.
