BREAK THE POWER OF FIXED CONDITIONED MENTAL PATERNS

The spiritual growth is usually prevented by the conditioned deep programming of the Mind. These programs place the development of the Ego in the foreground, and make efforts to sustain that development until the end of the life of the individual. The programmings support the progress of the Ego, they urge us to develop a powerful and efficient Ego for ourselves, and they make us believe that it is the ultimate goal in human life. These programmings regard any effort at suppressing the Ego as a sign of weakness that we should be ashamed of, and that we should avoid at any cost. The first gift of your conscious Alertness is when we discover, that instead of you, the deep-programs of your conditioned Mind are living our life. What need we know about this fixed conditioned mental patterns?

TRANSCEND THE SPIRITUAL EGO

During our spiritual Journey we accumulate a vast amount of knowledge of the world. From the books read, lectures heard and conversations had, we try to pick the useful and interesting bits of information, ideas, thoughts and theories. The same applies to experience. 

We believe that if we gather a sufficient amount of information during our spiritual journey, we achieve something, we improve, we make  progress. 

All the knowledge and experience collected, however, improves the contents of the mind, that is, a part of the spiritual Ego.

EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE NOW

It has happened to all of us that we came under the spell of a moment some time during our life. A beautiful landscape, a sunset, a beautiful piece of art, or the rhythm of music enchanted us. It may even happen that we are just lost in the silence of a peaceful moment. Why is this moment so enchanting, what is its secret?

WHEN THE MASSIVE CREATURE BEGINS TO SOAR

Meditation is a subtle, barely perceptible stream, in which you will experience a radical shift of the center of gravity. 

The manifestation, limited in time and space, thick and heavy, that you have formerly regarded as yourself, changes into a weightless but ubiquitous point without limits and dimensions.

The massive creature, bound to the earth that used to be you, is now free from its bonds and begins to soar.

THE EGO IS A FRAUD

The Ego is the central figure of our personal history, based upon the past and looking into the future. It is a dissatisfied, possessive small ego that often makes our life a misery. It is for certain that this small ego–or, more precisely, what we believe is our Self, our Ego–coiled up tightly in the back of our mind, is responsible for a tremendous amount of senseless and unnecessary suffering and destruction in the history of mankind. 

On our spiritual Journey arises the question, how we transcend the Ego?

THE ONLY EXISTING SELF

"The Ego calls itself real and the only existing ”Self,” though it is nothing more than a conceptual product, the continually changing content of the space of Consciousness." /Key 22. /

YOU LIVE IN A SEPARATE WORLD

The less alert you are, and the deeper you submerge into your dreams, the more isolated, solitary and individualistic you will become. Every sleeper–including you–has a separate world, only those who exist in the state of Alertness have a common, shared reality
All those different and separate worlds are created by the mind, which generates the state of separateness: the Ego, which appears as the focus of our identification with our thoughts and emotions. 
Thus everybody has a separate identity, personal history, individual world view and methods of action. Sometimes suffering alarms you from your sleep, but then you hasten to return to it, and start a new dream, a new objective in life, new ideals, passion, ambition that confirms your connection with your identity, rooted in your personal history.” Frank M.
