Real Faith in God Alone enables the body/mind’s state to turn unto the Transcendent Reality of Consciousness. It enables a person to live Through That (egoless) Consciousness while the activity of ego is undermined by this Very Relationship (through God with all) that is supported by reiterating the life of Enbrightenment. In other words, as a person consciously remembers to live and relate with all through the Eternal One the egoic activity of mind is purged and nullified. But, the fear that must be faced, the fear of death that must be faced is often too much for most egoically bound people to embrace and ultimately consciously transcend. This fear leads people with hearts yearning for God and Truth to accept the ego as something necessary and/or inherent in living a spiritual life. The ego then becomes something a person must live with, and the ego somehow serves God and God’s will. This allows for a separate self (ego self) to remain and the individual to keep relating to all through the false sense of Self, which is manifested through ego life.
There is an argument for some kind of functionary reason for the ego, but that clinging onto a separate self is just more ego; a false sense of self. God is fully capable of brushing teeth, wiping the butt, taking showers, driving cars, operating heavy machinery, and so on. God is fully capable of creativity and expressing that in an individual's life; more so than any version of ego self. Real Faith does not need or seek Any Kind of personal self, True Realization reveals clearly that there is no Real separative self, NOT ANY Form.
It does not take an idea for Real Self to exist, Self exists prior to Any manifestation of existence, and much more than Any idea of a separative self. To live from ego is to live from a tiny box (to live in a self created tower of Babblon - building up vast information - extensions of separative self - to reach God Realization). To live through God Only is to Live in Freedom, Perfect Faith in God and God's Will, and living in the absence of fear and of seeking or supporting separate self.
Tell me how long an ego lasts in which it is not appearing to change or add things on or take things away? Not even a picosecond (One trillionth of a second) would pass by without there being some kind of fluctuation in the egoic sense of self, thus, ego self never lasts and never actually comes into existence.
Self Is Identity. Ego is an attempt of the body/mind to seek identity because of the false sense of self that seems to be manifest (which is simply based on a bodily experience of life), and based on the impossibility of actually knowing what the ego ‘IS’ the mind simply makes up what ego ‘IS’ through life experiences and so on (whatever type of ego society currently accepts). However, ego is not anything. So, saying ego is a part of the Divine is nonsense. Spirituality is simply a life absent of ego, lived through that which is egoless. Any attempts to justify ego as something necessary or real are all futile.
The spiritual ego is a trendy concept that modern man and woman find comfort with. This concept allows for many truths, for everyone to have their own truth, and it says truth is different for all. The spiritual ego is an attempt of ego to live forever in some world or paradise, it is an attempt to become personally Realized. The spiritual ego is born from trying to cling onto some kind of soul that lives forever.
There aren't any forms of bodily life that are everlasting. Furthermore, at what possible point can/does ego spontaneously become something real (out of nothing)? It doesn't, it just feels like the knot of stuff in the brain (like a ball of rubber bands) serves as one's sense of self, and it seems to help with getting things done in life, especially sense it is totally foreign territory for a person living and relating through ego to live and relate consciously through that which is empty of ego (empty of personal self).
Truly, it is not like a person will disappear, stop existing, or somehow enter physical death if they live without ego. All fear based assumptions because one does not feel comfortable living in the absence of ego. It seems like one would cease to exist if ego is absent. This is simply the fear of no self; thus, attachment to any kind of (conscious sense of) self that seems to work becomes necessary, and even more delusionary is the spiritual ego claims to have a spark of God inside it.
Ego claims to have God inside, and can somehow reach God and become like God. All delusion. There isn't any room for two “me’s”. A person can't serve ego AND God simultaneously. Ego and God do not exist together in a world side by side. God is egoless Life. The funny thing Is, 'that there is Only God' and ego is no more real than “invisible pink flying spaghetti monsters with iphones”.
