Real Awakening

January 21, 2018

A wise man may perhaps tell you that he managed to learn either this or that to improve himself….a wiser man will tell you…he unlearnt either this or that to improve himself.

‘I’ve reached a point in my life when I am getting sick and tired of slaving just to satisfy the demanding needs of my ego….in the past. I could not really distinguish between the real ‘I’ and my ego. To me it seemed like basically one blob that I and everyone else called ‘me.’ But once I overcame the traditional scripting and programming of how most people perceive themselves and others. I became sensitive enough to the idea that ‘I’ and my ego are really two separate ideas and that had nothing whatsoever to do with the other. That was when I could make out what was from ‘I’ or ‘me’ and the ego…that is to say, I could see the duality in my thoughts, actions and deeds. This insight allowed me to audit myself on a regularly basis….and from there I able to lay the basis of the foundations to awaken.

I think to be awakened is a very important process of reincarnation if one is genuinely serious about living well. If I had to simply cite one compelling reason why this is so – it’s because so many people are still in a comatose slumber that they are yet to awaken from….the problem is when you try to tell them to wake up and they look at you as if you’re stark raving mad…that I believe is a very big problem. Because I don’t think you can really talk about freedom or for that matter rights when you are still imprisoned by the ego that you believe is indistinguishable from the real you.’
