The ego cannot survive being included

Bliss appears to be the biggest trap of the world. It seems as a goal for most seekers. Unfortunately you cannot experience something without its contrast, so when you want more bliss, which you will eventually crave, as being and/or having more is the reason for believing in a world, where there seems to be more than one, you will experience more of its contrast. The ego is not a power separated from you, but experienced as if it is, you seem to be separated as well made by contrasts of this and that. If any part of a contrast is fully included as it is, it cancels out both itself and its contrast, as no contrasts can survive inclusion. Without contrasts world, where there seem to be more than one, cannot be seen. Consequently there is no ego to hide that which is you, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

The ego is not a power separated from you, but when experienced as it is, you seem to be separated creature made up by contrasts of this and that. If any part of a contrast is fully included as it is, it cancels out both itself and its contrast, as no contrasts can survive inclusion. Without contrasts a world, where there seem to be more than one, cannot be seen. Consequently there is no ego to hide that which is you, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

Bliss is not the only reward, that the ego offer. Depending on our personality, it will seduce us with more love, wealth, freedom, power or consciousness. Basically it will promise us more of anything, that we desire, because it wants us to believe, it is possible to be and have more than that which is one.

Much energy is required to always get more. That is why more energy and/or power is the best-selling point for capitalistic companies and most so-called spiritual movements, as their apparent existence is based on following the ego, so that the idea of a world, where there appear to be more than one, can be upheld as real.

It may seem, as if the ego is a force outside of you, that cannot be controlled. But that is only because you want to believe it is not part of you, so that you can see yourself as a victim of powers from outside of you. The ego thrive from this separation, but when included it cannot survive – and so there is nothing to hide that which is you, namely the formlessness of that which is one.

The ego is automatically included, when you see that the apparent differences of a world, where there seems to be more than one, make no difference.
