Love is mysteriously delicate like the wind, sweeping in and out of our mind and heart with little warning. Some simply described it as an approximation to nothing as it is conceptually difficult to grasp firmly. Though not difficult to know what love is, but still difficult enough to harness its overwhelming effect and make it stick. What most of us claimed to know about love is useless if it remains stasis. Like the wind, no longer a wind when still.
Being aware of love is simply not good enough. It is like anything sighted from afar remains separated unless a pathway is cleared to allow for an approach. The spirit is an eternal emanating source of love where its sole purpose is to unite. That pathway will put love into motion channelling it straight to the heart without allowing ego to take notice. Only then, love reveals itself, pure and untainted with a fulfilling acceptance through knowing first of its existence.
So, true love evolved from spirit and unfiltered by ego. For love to be felt fulfilling, our mind must submit itself to a process of thought transformation. Begin with relieving our mind from making deductions. Our human senses of sight and hearing are ‘tools’ of the mind that feeds the framework created by ego which constantly needs satisfying. Search within for that invisible quality that places no importance on definition and discrimination. In doing so, we effectively displaced ego to channel love through. In time, we will come to realise that we are a reflection of our environment which defines us, a creation amongst creation. Thence, a process will follow to develop a deeper sense in understanding of ‘existence’. This realisation is essential to take with us in moving forward.
Our ego-base mind subjects us to live in ‘definition’ by conjuring structures to confine love. Within the walls of the structure, love is imprisoned and weighed on a tipping scale. Under these terms, love is bartered to serve ego’s single purpose, segregation. Normal circumstance in our reality requires us to relate to a quantitative measure in everything that we do. Thus, the love we often speak of is at best a mechanical kind, very much a conditional one.
Much is said about the dark force of ego, but nonetheless ego has a valid presence in our lives which we can’t rid of. It is a permanent part of our human fabric. Ego defines our human form and without it would only invalidate the meaning to creation and ultimately our existence. Ego is like fungus, when it is exposed to sunlight, it diminished and without sunlight, it will resurfaced from its ‘sleep’ and thrived on the living again.
This analogy of ego reminds me of the epic battle which Jesus fought against Satan. The sudden burst of light emitted from the body of Christ shrunk Satan to its bones which ended the wager made between good and evil. A Jewish prophecy seemingly fulfilled which redeemed the faith of the colony, but when Jesus chose not to end the battle with the execution of Satan is baffling. After all, wasn’t Satan the most destructive force known to man? This part of the saga was conveniently dismissed and left unquestioned. Contrary to the unobservant mind, the reprieve that Jesus handed to Satan is regarded as an act of deliverance of the most profound. It is the ultimate act of sacrifice which will serve mankind in their journey to true fulfilment. Ego embodies Satan, and it is not an imagination but more of a reflection of the ugly truth of ego. So, Satan is real. If we dwell in ego’s intention long enough, Satan will manifest itself in us. We become it. Satan’s existence is just as real as we profess to the reality of ego. If the conclusion of the battle was to take another path where Jesus slain Satan, then spirit consumes ego and becomes it. If that is at all possible, then creation becomes mundane without purpose and hope. Surely, our existence would cease to evolve. Jesus understood existence, and recognised that Satan was part of creation and the role it played in existence defined his.
Even though ego tends to manifests separation by demanding identity and recognition, but ironically it is a force of its own which brings balance to our total form. Ego feeds on fear just as fungus draws from a living host for sustenance. There must be a constant interaction with ego to serve as a platform to guide our spirit to emerge. The idea is not to oppose ego forcefully as if to engage in a crusade to end its existence. No, I am subtly proposing to tame the ‘beast’ by transcending above it. If we are to accomplish that feat, ego must become part of the spirit. In a crude sense, make ego our ‘tool’ to build a bridge to lure our spirit to come forth. The scripture states, “knock and the door will be opened” and “ask and it will be given to you” are validations to the ever readiness of the spirit in making the approach to unite. The question is, are we ready to allow it? If we are, then we need to tame our fears. Fears of failure, under achievement or losing loved ones etc. We would not be stricken with lives issues as fears are only ‘tools’ at our disposal to help our spirit to awaken, as it did Jesus. Jesus do not need to put up with Satan again because in our own accord inspired by the revelation of the intricate wisdom that Jesus bestowed on us, we can transcend through him, in him, with him and in one with the spirit.
