SIX WORD » QUESTIONS

Do you know what EGO is?

by Dhani on November 15, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


'A Course In Miracles' neatly pins down the definition for ALLOFUS: 'The ego...is the sign of limited and separated self: born in a body, doomed to suffer and to end its life in death, the 'proof' that strength is weak and love is fearful, Life is really death, and what opposes God alone is true.

The ego dreams of punishment, and trembles at the figures in its dreams; its enemies who seek to murder it before it can ensure its saftey by attacking them.

To know reality is not to see the ego and its thoughts, works, acts, laws, beliefs, dreams, hopes and plans for its salvation and the cost believing it entails.'
