Primarily numb.

Sometimes we really don’t want to exhaust ourselves with extra burdens of negative or even positive emotions. In some cases it could be like a psychological defense so as to absorb the reality, means any events or something that arouses emotions to occupy your mental absorbing time. Whereas usually people just bottle up their emotions.One scenario that causes people to feel depressed without feeling sad is when depression causes them to feel primarily numb. They don’t feel sad, angry, joyful, or really anything at all. They may feel an amorphous misery, but no specific emotion.

What is the root of all evil?

rootofevilsandman3
Are we  indeed “evil creatures” and need some governing authority in our lives  to regulate our behavior? If so, what authority? In my experience, there  is an aspect of my intellect that only loves itself. It has been  defined by many wise teachers as the “ego” but their definition is  sometimes confusing.From a spiritual perspective, ego means considering oneself to be  distinct from others and God due to identification with the physical  body and impressions in various centers of the subtle body. In short ego  is leading our life as per the thinking that our existence is limited  to our 5 senses, mind, and intellect and identifying with them to  various degrees.In layman’s terms one can define ego as  pride about oneself. Thoughts such as my body and mind, my intellect, my  life, my wealth, my wife and children, I should acquire happiness, etc.  arise from ego alone.Ego, awareness of the self, pride, conceit and ‘i’ness are words related to the word ‘ego’ but on a psychological plane. For the sake of simplicity, let us call it  “intellect devoid of love”. And let us call egoism the philosophy that  ego is the most important thing. Many of those who lead our institutions  overtly or secretly follow this philosophy and have organized  themselves into a mutually supported global power. Many people  think that they are evil. They are addicted to power, and what is  necessary is to have a global “intervention” where we communicate to  them how they have hurt others and also to be honest with themselves about how they have enabled their disruptions overtime. In other words, we need a revolution.  Because the root of all evil is egoism, or addiction to ego. And the  Supreme Loving Consciousness is the only legitimate governing authority  that should guide our behavior. More and more are recognizing this. Let  us put aside our petty differences and help each other see the egoism  that we have a hard time seeing when we are so focused on the  destructive behaviors of others. Let there be Love Revolution! Let the  forces of Life overthrow the egotist tyrants externally and internally!If we come out of the negativity of ego and try to truly understand what the unique method for dealing egoistic desires then we will be faraway from many evils with their roots.The biggest confusion for people who get into spirituality is with  regards to their “Ego”. It’s common for spiritual people to consider Ego  as negative; but in truth, it’s not Ego that’s negative but thoughts  based in fear that are negative. Ego is Ego; it’s not negative or  positive. What you “think” determines whether you are aligning with  negative or positive. The way I define Ego is that it’s the structure in  your mind that gives a “person” identity; it serves a very practical  purpose for physical interaction of humans.You are unique as an expression of universal consciousness and your  uniqueness is reflected in the preferences or desire that your physical  being comes up with – your brain/mind/heart comes up with the desires  based on its unique natural conditioning/external conditioning (the  structure of personal Ego). Each of your desire has a huge value because  it causes expansion in life and you act as a co-creator of new  realities. So your Ego has a very important part to play in the game of  co-creation. The Ego desires new realities through its preferences and  the universal consciousness brings forth the manifestation of these  realities and keeps them in place.So give up on the negative loop of trying to quell your ego, and  allow yourself the freedom to express your uniqueness through your  desires/preferences. Life is not here to condemn you for your desires,  it’s here to embrace all of it and bring it to manifestation. You are  totally loved by life just the way you are, it has no conditions for  you, it’s is totally appreciative of the value you provide through your  uniqueness – it’s important that you realize how valuable your presence  here is.

Waiting

unnamed

Walking on the long, lonely…

Shore of my memories..

By the ocean of LIFE…

I felt the footsteps of my moments…

That are gone…

Whom I loved…

Who deserted me…

But how can I forget the memories of all the moments of gone days,like the rose,that withers when it parts,from the thorn that pricks it’s heart,

I too..

died..

When time turned away..

lifeless.hopeless..helpless..I wait for the moments..passing moments…snatching away…hope..

BUT STRENGTHENING MY DESIRE…

TO BEHOLD THEM 🙂
