When you understand yourself that very day you have understood the whole of humanity.
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (later known as Osho)
The Self we are seeking to experience here is the Big Self,
the True Self, an expression of the divine.
However, most people, most of the time both think and experience themselves as something tiny and insignificant. This is the small-self or egoic self.
The egoic self thinks and experiences itself as separate from all of life. It seeks to protect itself in this way from hiding itself away from life like when you are feeling small.
“You are not a drop in the ocean you are the entire ocean in a drop.”
Alternatively, at the other end of the ego scale, might be something like a bully or dictator.
Both of the above are different approaches to small-self preservation. An act of separateness. However as we have seen in (You and the Universe) this separateness is self-evidently not the case. It is an illusion. A very powerful one at that!
So all pervading and invasive is this illusion that it creates behaviours and then habits that can take a long time to release. Old habits can die hard as we know.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Rapid, fundamental and life-changing shift in your experience, awareness that is your consciousness is possible with the gift of Spheres Of Light and Infinite Silence. Many people have found this to be so. You can too.
This site is dedicated to helping YOU making this shift in consciousness and thus embracing the JOY within.
