To live in body and ego is to live in hell

TO LIVE AS EGO IN BODY IS TO LIVE IN HELL AND PRISON

Ozodi Osuji

     There is always an I, a self. God is an I, a self; God’s I, self-extended to infinite Is, selves. Thus, one always has an I, a self, in heaven and on earth.

     In heaven, unified spirit state, one’s I, self knows itself to be an extension of God and all other selves, and one thinks and acts from unified state, from love hence is not in conflict with other selves.

     When the self, the I, that is, wishes to seem more powerful than God and his other sons, that I seem to go to sleep and dream and in its dream is now a seeming separated self, a false powerful self, hence a false ego self, the self we have on earth.

     While in the dream, on earth, if one stops desiring a powerful ego self-one returns to the awareness of the humble self; indeed, one’s body and world of space, time and matter disappears, and one lives in a formless self that is part of all selves.

     The point is that one should not be afraid of oneself dying out for it is part of a universal self and universal mind that is eternal, permanent, and changeless and will always be so; only the ego and its body seems to die but merely changes to the awareness of its always natural state as son of God, part of the whole self.

       To identify with the ego and seek to live as an ego is to be always acting the part of the ego, big or small; the ego is a false self so one must pretend to be it at all times; one cannot be it with ease, for it is not who one is, but must be acted as if it is who one is; acting as if one is an ego that one is not means that one lives in fear of not being what one is acting as;  to live in pretense is to live in tension, in conflict; to live as an ego is to live in tension and conflict (to be the ego self or to be the real self-conflicts).

     To not desire the false ego self and not live as it or desire to live as it is to relax and live from one’s real self, is to live in peace.

WHY DO PEOPLE SEEK THE EGO DESPITE ITS TENSION AND CONFLICT? POWER

     If to live in ego is to live in conflict, then why do people seek to live as egos? It is because of what the ego means. The real self, the part of the whole self, the son of God is at peace with the whole self, with God, he is in union with God and the whole self, and all selves.

     The ego is the son of God, the part of the whole self that chooses to live in opposition to the whole self, to God and other selves; it is the self that seeks personal power, the power to create itself, create other selves and create the universe; it is that self that created our physical universe.

     The ego self is the son of God who invented the physical universe of space, time and matter and placed itself in a body and live in space and time to seem powerful for now it lives in a body and world it made. The world came into being to enable the son of God to live as an ego self. The ego self is what we came to earth to live as; this is existential; it is not what happens to one, it is what one came to be. When one stops seeking personal power one returns to living as ones shared self, part of God and all selves; one no longer lives in conflict and tension, one returns to peace and joy.

    To live as an ego is to be in hell of one’s making, to be in prison where one relegated oneself.

      The ego is a concept; it is one, the sleeping son of God that conceptualized the ego separated self.

     The son of God, one’s real self is not a concept; one’s real self is a self-created by God. Since the ego is a concept, it is false and, as such, it must be defended to seem real in one’s mind.

THE EGO IS DEFENDED WITH FEAR, ANGER, DEPRESSION, PARANOIA AND OTHER EMOTIONS

     The ego is defended with anger, fear, sadness, depression and paranoia. If it is a real self, it would not need defense to be real. The real self does not need defense to be hence lives peacefully and quietly, assured that it lives forever and ever.

     Defense is an attempt to make the false ego seem real but defense while making it seem pseudo real does not make it real; it is a futile and unnecessary effort defending the false ego self for all that defense makes one angry, fearful and tense yet does not make what is defended, ego real.

     One must let go of the ego self-concept to regain awareness of one’s real self, or since one has forgotten it, its representative in the world of space, time and matter, the Holy Spirit (part of the whole spirit called God and his son) guides one.

SOCIETY IS DESIGNED TO ENABLE ONE LIVE AS AN EGO, FUNCTION AS AN IMPORTANT SELF THAT OTHER EGOS LIKE AND ACCEPT AND APPROVE HENCE SOCIETY DISTORTS HUMAN BEINGS

     All human societies were constructed by the ego; their purpose is to enable people to live in accordance with the ego’s frame of reference, a false self, a bodily self-defending its body and false self. Thus, to conform to society is to agree to be a false self and function as if one is a false, separated self.

     In America you must always pursue money for society to accept you, hence you pretend as if you have money.

    In Igbo land you must always pursue being important for your people to accept you hence you are always acting as if you are what you are not.

     Society produces false people, neurotics.

      If you want to liberate you from the ego you must check out of your society and live from your deeper self, the real self.

     When you stop trying to live as a big, powerful ego you live from a humble self, the self that shares power with all selves and knows that all power derives from the whole self, aka God.

     The individual by his self alone cannot be powerful because the entire whole self, God is responsible for all power.

     Stop the desire to live as an ego; liberate yourself from the hell and prison called the ego and you live in peace.

WHEN YOU STOP LIVING AS AN EGO YOU WILL LIVE IN ABUNDANCE

     If you return to living from the Holy Spirit, from your real self, you become the prodigal son who went home and stopped trying to be an ego, who lived in a foreign land (not in his real home in unified spirits, God).

      When the prodigal son returned home he was feasted by God; he was clothed in golden clothes (this is metaphor saying  that God will enrich your life, without you having to work for it, because now you are relying on the power of God to give you what you need to live on without your ego pretending that it can make you rich and powerful which it cannot do). 

     The power of God is so immense that a son that relies on him will have all his needs met; even in this world but not wealth to make one seem better than other egos (one is now no longer an ego); what one needs to do what one needs done on earth is given to one; one is given what one needs to meet one’s financial responsibilities on earth.

THERE ARE NO PEOPLE OUT THERE TO DO GOOD OR BAD TO YOU

     Every person that you see as out there is physical light transformed into flesh, literally; that physical light itself does not exist (only spiritual light exists). Therefore, the person you see as in front of you, as out there is not there, except as spirit which your mind transformed into physical light and body and make him do what it does to you; you did to you what he does to you; you did so in a dream; what is done in dreams have not been done; no one has done any good or bad to you and you have not done any good or bad to you or to other people.

    The dream, the world is not real; overlook it, forgive it and return to the awareness of our true self, spirit.

     But if you want to seem a separated ego self you will make you seem a body, make other people seem bodies and you see you and other people in bodies, bodies attacking you and each other to make you focus on bodies, the world and forget your real self.

     Overlook the world and what is done in it and regain awareness of yourself as part of unified spirit self; that is, escape from this world of separated egos in their separated bodies.

    You do not want to do so hence you focus on your body and other people’s bodies and what folks do with their bodies.

     White folks did not do injustice. It was me who slapped me through them. Nobody else can do something to one unless one asks them to do so.

     In fact, it is one that projected other people into one’s dream so one did to one what seeming other people did to one.

     It is me who discriminated against me via white people; I did so because I did not want to do their jobs, because their jobs seem meaningless. I was looking for a different type of work, love-based work which I did not see in the USA.

     If one desires to feel persecuted one projects out other people and through them attack one and one, then reacts defensively towards them; one forgets that it is one who projected them out and made them discriminate against one.

     The relevant point is that white folks did not harm me and could not do so; whatever discrimination I see coming from them I did to me but disguised it to seem like they did so to me to justify anger at them, anger at me, anger at the son of God and his father, anger at God.

IF YOU FOLLOW A COURSE IN MIRACLES’ TEACHING, TO LIVE IN BODY, EGO, SPACE AND TIME IS TO ATTACK YOUR SPIRITUAL REALITY SO TO RETURN TO YOUR SPIRITUAL REALITY YOU MUST STOP LIVING IN EGO, BODY, SPACE, TIME.

THE FRAME OF REFERENCE OF SPIRIT IS NOT BODY, SPACE AND TIME; THE FRAME OF REFERENCE OF EGO IS BODY, SPACE AND TIME; THEY ARE DIFFERENT, THEY ARE OPPOSED TO EACH OTHER; YOU MUST CHOOSE ONE AND GIVE UP THE OTHER BUT CANNOT HAVE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME; IF YOU SEE ONE THE OTHER DISAPPEARS FROM YOUR AWARENESS

      If you see our world of bodies, space, time and matter the world of unified spirit, which is formless, disappears from your awareness. Any time that you see our world of separated things you have attacked the world of unified, formless spirit and will not experience it. Your attack does not hurt the world of spirit because it is not things, it is formless, the world of spirit does not even know that you are attacking it but your attack separates you from it; your desire to live as a separated self-separates you from God and his kingdom of spirits.; choose and defend the ego and body, space, and time and matter and God disappears from your awareness; to experience God you must not choose ego and body and must not defend ego and body, you must not choose to live in this world.

    But since you likely do not choose this radical departure from this world and return to God, God allows you to be here on earth and asks you to live from his Holy Spirit that remembers his world and it asks you to love all people and forgive all people so that occasionally you experience Holy Instance when you have momentary awareness of unified spirit, all things as one thing.

    Every time you seek other egos attention for your ego and body, you have attacked your spirit self except that your spirit self does not feel hurt but knows that you are doing you injustice in affirming your false self; instead, it asks you to totally overlook your ego and body and validate your spirit which is always one with all other spirit selves and God and in the awareness of it you feel peace and joy.
