FORGETFULNESS OF BEING

September 6, 2013 Comments Off on FORGETFULNESS OF BEING

Ego is always identification with form, seeking yourself and thereby
losing yourself in some form.

Forms are not just material objects and physical bodies.

More fundamental than the external forms – things and bodies – are the
thought forms that continuously arise in the field of consciousness.

They are energy formations, finer and less dense than physical matter,
but they are forms nonetheless.

What you may be aware of as a voice in your head that never stops
speaking is the stream of incessant and compulsive thinking.

When every thought absorbs your attention completely, when you are so
identified with the voice in your head and the motions that accompany
it that you lose yourself in every thought and every emotion, then you
are totally identified with form and therefore in the grip of ego.

Ego is a conglomeration of recurring thought forms and conditioned
mental emotional
patterns that are invested with a sense of I, a sense of self.

Ego arises when your sense of Beingness, of “I Am,” which is formless
consciousness, gets mixed up with form.

This is the meaning of identification. This is forgetfulness of Being,
the primary error, the illusion of absolute separateness that turns
reality into a nightmare.
