Do not accept any of my words on faith, believing them just because I said them, be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns, and critically examine his product for authenticity- only accept what passes the test, by proving useful and beneficial in your life…Buddha.
A battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base. In my writing ‘Leading the army of today…shaping the army of tomorrow’, you’re the soldiers of life. You are soldiers with a battle to fight. And in my writing ‘On your way to eternal life’, you love thy enemies because they magnify your greatness. So, you eagerly ask “who and where is my target to destroy”? I calmly reply “your target is your ego and its position is in your mind”.
I am not a spiritual teacher or a religious follower; you’re entitled to trust my words, only if they prove useful and beneficial in your life. Be aware though, my writing will guide you into a process of increasing awareness beneath the surface, which will lead you to an informed conclusion on whether you’re driving your life, or your life is taking you to your final destination.
Most spiritual doctrines teach that after death, you must walk to the light, to become one with The Creator. The only obstacle between the light and your spirit is your ego. The ego operates based on the reality principle, or what you belief to be your reality. Everything that you are was created by your thoughts, in your mind, before it became reality. Your challenge is to destroy your ego by connecting your essence to the spiritual values to which you ultimately aspire.
Your battle consists in creating an internal revolution for the sake of your soul purpose, to conquer your ego, to recognise your essence on the other side. You must navigate through your interior depths, removed from the feeding of physical events, to rescue your inner self. You will not stop being human or imperfect- but you will be able to create a better reality for yourself. You will have the power to transcend your weaknesses and dysfunctional behaviours, or at least acknowledge them and accept them, to work on them without the influence of your ego- and that is already half the battle.
The other half of the battle will bring out the best of you, when you learn to live with the notion that you are coming into a newly formed sense of self and your reality is based on a deeper process of identity than the one provided by consensus thinking. You are not alone in this battle- your Creator will help you every step of the way. Once the target has been eliminated- your ego - you will be able to take at look at yourself, in all your beautiful and shining glory!
