Thought of the Week – 16th May 2022

The ego would have you think that it’s responsible for your survival. Ego says, “If I wasn’t so clever . . . if I didn’t remind you to take your vitamins and all, you’d be deader than a mackerel.” The downside of duality, then, is it creates the illusion that there’s a separate I that is the cause of everything—that there’s a personal I, separate from the infinite oneness of totality. The core of the ego is this self-centered point, which one assumes to be the cause of everything. As long as you believe in causality, you are stuck in a duality of “a this causing a that.” The pathway to enlightenment through non-duality dissolves the opposites.
