(I’m no longer afraid of the word “God”, so I will use that from now on, instead of “Infinite Oneness”, although they are the same. “Energy” is another word that means the same).
Why am I writing so much about this Ego / God thing? Because the belief in the Ego is the source of all frustration. And the truth about it is that it doesn’t even exist! The Ego’s central belief is that the Ego made you. Think about this for a minute: Did you create yourself? How were you created? You may trace yourself back to your parents, to their parents, to the big bang, but then you gotta ask, how was the big bang created? There IS a force beyond this world that created this world, and is forever doing so. Believing this, one cannot believe in the Ego, for the Ego is the assertion that IT is the creator, not God. The Ego can make temporary, capricious beliefs we can be confused by, but God creates endless, changeless love.
The Ego is not God, for all aspects of the Ego are directly opposed to God. The Ego would have you believe conflict, fear, guilt and suffering are all possible, and sometimes even needed. The Ego is the rejection of the love that is God; rejecting God’s love, it can only make fear. God’s creation was a voluntary act of goodwill (god’swill); thus, everything resulting from God’s creation is necessarily good. So why all the stress? Because we believe in something unreal: the Ego.
God has 2 wills, an Active Will (i.e. let there be light) and a Permissive Will (i.e. let those huwans believe in false gods). The Ego, rejecting God, is a false God, an idol. God is eternal Love and Joy. The Ego is the opposite: ephemeral fear. But God did not make the Ego, huwans did. The Ego is merely a belief of our mind. God, on the other hand, is reality. Once we decide which we believe in, our life follows according to the principles of the entity we choose.
I am writing so much on this topic because this is the only distinction one must make: When am I following the Ego’s thought system, and when am I following God’s? Following the Ego means rejection and competition. Following God means sharing unlimited love/possibilities/everything.
We’ve been trained very well to follow the Ego. Turning to God requires vigilance. Here is a prayer/poem/mantra/aid to exercise mental vigilance in following God:
God flows through me.
I love impeccably.
I create healing with mutual respect.
I appreciate all that is God.
I accept the light: Awake.
I accept harmony: Awake.
I only accept God.
God is my motivation.
God is my inspiration.
God sustains me.
God is my goal.
