We all have an innate desire to live a life of simplicity, love and enlightenment. But how do we reach this in a world that thrives on complexity, egoism and illusions?

Let’s broaden our understanding of the human existence - consciousness, ego, conditioned behavior, the mind and spirituality in general. What is beyond the assumptions, interpretations and definitions of our human-made reality? Is there a space of unlimited possibilities once we release our minds and consciously interact with life? Can there be any purpose for our existence that is more divine than being a vessel for life…for consciousness?

Thy self should be Honored: But which Self?

Thy self should be Honored

Let’s consider the various possibilities available in our search for the one true self. Human beings became self-aware. This changed everything and caused a suppression and restriction of consciousness. Consciousness took a back seat to a conditioned mind. This, in turn, allowed the mind to almost completely dominate our interaction with the present moment.

We should consider the word “our” and its use in the last sentence. “Our” actually indicates “thy self”. The mind overpowered both the human form self and the one true universal self.

Thy self, in reference to our species form is a self-induced implant placed onto the one true universal self. The true self is consciousness in its entirety.

It is common for people that have consciously awakened to become confused by believing that they have discovered the true self, when in fact it is a false self image imitation of the one true self.
