Ego

I am forever the same

GR19And that is the idea a person has to develop, that I am forever the same. I have not changed at all, for I come from the land of changelessness and I will reach the land of changelessness. So from the non‑changing we are proceeding to non‑changing. And yet all the things that come up in your minds changing, changing, changing, which are none else but thought forms. So my little daughter sitting over there, she thinks she’s so pretty. I mean everyone thinks that they are pretty, you know. They imagine themselves to be far better looking than what they really are. That’s a fact. Look into the mirror again. And you will think you are far more nicer looking than what you really are.

So we really are so much involved in our outer stuff that surrounds us. It is the externality that is influencing our lives. And everything which is external has the quality of motion and wherever there is motion, there has to be change which any science can tell you about.

So as the external things around you change, you are, at the same time, being influenced by your ego self, which is forever changing, and the changing of the ego self makes you see the changes around you. You see how it is all interrelated.

But when you find through your spiritual practices and meditations that beautiful stillness within you, then all change disappears. All change disappears, and you start appreciating what life is really about. Our greatest trouble lies in the non‑appreciation of life, for we do not know what life is all about. How many here could truly say that I know myself? How many of you could truly say that I know my life? A far ways to go to be able to know yourself. To be able to know what life is, because nothing else could exist but life itself, for everything is living, pulsating. There are so many automatic processes going on in this universe of ours, even within your own bodies, that you are not even aware of. How much are you aware of your heart beating? Unless you get a pain, then you become aware. So your awareness lies in the pain, but not in the very object itself, of that beautifully pulsating heart. And Dr. Padmini will tell us how many gallons of blood it pumps throughout the body in 24 hours. And yet we are not aware of it.

How many people are really aware of themselves breathing? You’re not. How many are aware of their own thoughts? They think that they think, but what are the mechanics of thought? Where do thoughts originate? How have they come about? What is the mechanism within that makes a thought form itself into a conscious thought? There is so, so much involved far, far deeper down within yourselves, where you go back and further back and further back to the original thought which, by the way, was not thought of by anybody or any being. It found its existence by itself, and that very thought force that found its own existence is still carrying on and on and on, and it will carry on till eternity. So be glad you have this little ego so at least you have some little cognition of what’s happening around you, or perhaps what’s happening to a very limited degree what is within you.
