Perception, Ego & Reality


Perception, Ego & Reality

Here we are trying to explore our Perception and Ego. Go through the below words, and the video in the bottom. 

We suffer from a hallucination, a false and distorted sense of our own existence as living organisms. Most of us have the feeling that “myself” is an independent center of feeling and action, living in and bounded by the physical body – An “external” world of people and middle things “confronts” making contact through the senses with an alien and strange at the same time universe.

Everyday figures of speech reflect this illusion. “I came to this world.” “You must face reality.” “The conquest of nature.” This feeling of being lonely and very temporary visitors in the universe contradicts everything known about man (and all other living organisms) in the sciences. We do not “enter” the world; We come from her, like the leaves of a tree. As the ocean “waves” the universe “peoples”.

Each individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a single action of the total universe. This fact is rarely, if ever, experienced by most individuals. Even those who know it is true in theory not perceive or feel, but remain aware of themselves as isolated egos “” inside leather bags.

See some wise’s Quotes;

  • ‘Ego was the helper; ego is the bar.’– Aurobindo
  • ‘Up until the present you have very seriously considered yourself as being the body and you have identified yourself with the form. There resides the fundamental ignorance and the cause of all your woes.’ Ramana Maharshi
  • ‘In meditating on the final goal, one has to discover the non-existence of the personal ego, and therefore the fallacy that it exists.’– Milarepa

Ego signifies I, me, separated from everything, thinking person.

According to many ancient and contemporary wise men as well as new quantum physics teachings, ego is an illusion. This science tells us that neither subject nor object, neither things nor entities exist; there is only process, there is only movement.

It is difficult with the brain that we posses to grasp the reality of the universe. That said, wisdom of all ages have always insisted upon going beyond the ego, and upon the idea that the image of self must be transcended so that enlightenment or full consciousness be realized.

When we no longer identify ourselves with what we think we are, we suddenly realize that our ego doesn’t really exist and that we are everything.

We are not nothing. We are notes that make up a symphony and we are the symphony itself since the symphony cannot be played without notes. When we realize that we ‘are’ not, we become aware that we are the universe.

Putting things in #‎perspective. We are tiny, really tiny. A big lesson for all of us, when ever succumb to our #‎Ego!
