at the end of this video (http://youtube.com/watch?v=ByXOJs4Uvfw) you say "can you imagine never have been or never going to be"? I've never expereinced either of those. However, the "idea" of never going to be creates great fear in many people. If it's never been "experienced", how does the "idea" or "thought" "of never going to be", or "cease being" come from? I know you will say "the ego", all fear comes form the ego, but why does the ego create that thoght? the ego creates fear to protect itself. but how does this scary thoguht of ceasing to be protect the self in any way? it seems like it is only damaging.
Another aspect of the ego is its contradictions. Please do not ever try to make sense of the ego, not only it doesn't work but creates further frustration, confusion and even greater fear. This confusion is ego's domain. How can one make sense of war, hatred, revenge, killing innocent children or genocide and so on. This is the insanity of the ego. Now the question is, what is ego? It is simply the belief in separation while in truth every is one interdependent, interconnected and interrelated whole. Just as separation is fear so is Oneness unconditional love. And that's what all spirituality is about -- LOVE!
