The ego cannot survive inclusion

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.

Harmony and balance, as described in the previous article Harmony hides that which is one are not the only rewards, that the ego offer. Depending on our personality, it will seduce us with more love, wealth, freedom, power, consciousness and whatnot. 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 seems 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 oneness.

You cannot recognise, that differences make no difference, if you do not start off by experiencing hate as well as love, bad as well as good and so on. In which order makes no difference. But you will not know, differences make no difference, if you suppress feelings upsetting you, as doing so will make them appear to be different.

The ego is automatically included, when the apparent differences of a world where there seems to be more than one is not perceived to make a difference.
