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.

Just a few steps

set_your_goals_wallpaper_by_skatfree

Setting goals is a key step in accomplishments. However, I  often see clients with lofty goals that may not even be realistic.  Holding ourselves to goals that we cannot reach can damage our  self-esteem and inhibit our interest in trying to reach these goals  again.
When setting your mind to reach a goal, ask yourself “Is this  realistic and can I actually attain this goal?” If the answer is no,  consider breaking the goal down into intermediate steps or modifying it  altogether.
Empower yourself to change what you can, and let go  of the rest. Don’t expend your energy trying to control others. Focus on  yourself,first.There’s a reason why the saying “When life throws you  lemons, make lemonade” has been around for years. When things aren’t  going right, ask yourself “Could things be worse?” or “Is there anything  I can take out of this that can be a benefit to me?”
More often than not, there is a positive aspect to things that  happen, even those that feel negative. Try to view it in a different  light and you may find your attitude turn around. It can  be very difficult to focus on what is directly in front of you and  ensure that you are fully present.
Today’s technology and expectation to be connected or available to  work at all times is one of the most prominent challenges people face  when trying to be present in the “here and now.”
Listen to what your heart and mind tell you about what  you need to do. Learning to reflect on your inner thoughts and feelings  will help you trust putting them into action.
Stop and see what it is that’s keeping you stuck right  now. Oftentimes it’s a blind spot you can’t see, so taking time to null  things over helps you see more clearly. Is it a decision you’re afraid  to make? Are certain people bringing you down? Are you in a cycle of  negative thinking? Or whatsoever,You must be aware.For life improvement, I suggest the reader put life on  pause, for at least a few moments a day, and consider what you’d like to  accomplish today, and the vibe you want to carry.
Years ago, a client of mine was searching for a guidepost or mantra  by which to live his life. After much soul-searching, he decided that,  with every decision he makes, every day, he wanted to write the “better  story.”
The better story might be getting up earlier rather than sleeping in  [or] reaching out to help someone instead of passively ignoring their  need… This turned out to be an enormous gift to me, as I now try to do  this every day surely is a positive activity.
You don’t need an overhaul to improve the quality of your life. Just a  few steps can help to boost your well-being and make your days more  meaningful. And the great part is that you can start today.

Send out good energy

10155317_695597863861270_3223396914332913230_n

Everything you do — every action, even every thought — is made up of  energy. This energy acts like a boomerang and always returns to you.  When you send out good energy, that’s what returns. There is no better  energy than doing selfless deeds for others.There is no feeling  quite like the feeling of charity. Giving and helping are one of the  most rewarding and productive things that you can do in life. Not  everyone has the same luck or lack thereof in life, making it a  wonderful idea for everyone to spread kindness and compassion no matter  where they go.I think charity can give you a spiritual reward that is more beneficial than a material rewards. There are tons of things that one can do to help others,  making your kind gestures something that can happen often and in a  limitless amount of ways. Everywhere you turn, you will see someone that  is having trouble, or going through a hard time. I get that  warm, fuzzy, needed feeling when I help others. It feels good. When you step into hands-on charity work, you’ll feel like you’re really turning things around.Everyone has regrets, and some of us are hard on ourselves for past  actions. When you step into hands-on charity work, you’ll feel like  you’re really turning things around. Not that charity work erases  wrongdoings; but there is a satisfaction that brings a shift to your  self-worth when you feel you’re finally contributing more positive than  negative actions to the world. Sometimes, the only thing you have to do is be there: talk, and  listen. This is something that requires no extra effort on your part.  Just being there! Some people may be grieving through a loss, whether  it be someone they know, a job, a pet, or even a home. Others are going  through a break up, divorce, or abuse. These people need someone to  talk to and cheer them up. It can be a very difficult task, but your  tone of voice, intent, and clear compassion will make all of the  difference.Working for charities is a mutually beneficial relationship. They need  you, and you need them just as much. Get involved and start reaping the  spiritual benefits of charity work.
