Have you ever been mad because some else got the job you where applying for? How about when a person questions your integrity?  How about when you are driving down the street minding your own business and somebody cuts you off for no reason? How about when your cable goes out, and when you call the cable company you have to navigate an endless menu just to speak with a live person? Here is my personal favorite the IRS sends you huge bill and threatening letters, because they made a mistake entering your taxes. I have one last favorite when one of my parents tell me what to do and I am 44 years old; what is up with that?

Guess what, none of these people is trying, to ruin your day.  We all know this; I do not need to tell you this. Why do we react and let the people and situations determine how we feel at any given moment. Once again, I think we all know the answer to that question also; we are trying to protect our egos. Don’t you know who I am?

That is very good question, who are you?  Who am I? I believe the answer is awareness. Without awareness, we do not exist, and neither does the external world.  What is awareness? Is it our perceptions? Perception is our egos work. Behind our perceptions there, a perceiver that is completely unbiased and pure. Beneath all of our ego-based perceptions, we are all pure, absolute awareness. It is so vast and infinite that we cannot put into any human language. We are lucky enough to be able to experience it.  Again, I am sure that we have all had moments were we felt as if we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. Playing out our role on the stage of perception, why not just sit back and enjoy the show? When something upsets us, just think about those moments when we experience the vastness of the universe, and know that are not separate from it, but a part of its infinite possibilities manifesting. Just look at the size of our universe, and know we are not separate from it, but only a spark of energy manifesting in a universe of unlimited potential. Something so vast and magnificent it can only be good. Our time here is very short. Enjoy the beauty of life.

We should spend more time smiling and enjoying the world around us; rather than feeling angry with the people and situations that do not satisfy our egos craving for separateness.  I am not saying that the ego does not have its place it does. It protects our physical bodies from harm. It helps us avoid harmful circumstances. However, we have forgotten that we are part of a whole. We have mistaken our egos for our real selves. When we put our egos in the back seat and  place our awareness in the driver seat, what happens? Try it for a while and see.

 

Namaste,
Gary
