If it’s so miserably what has you seeking it, and seeking it rather seriously?
Love ya, Jed
Consider this possibility, ego is a personal and individual thing, very different in you and others. It has different priorities and sensitivities, can be large and small, culturally driven, blah, blah, blah…
Now Maya (which might be called the creator of the dream… loosely) exists in all the dreamed characters in order to be effective and consistent (a dream that is not consistent will have all the characters waking up and that just won’t do).
I know I blend them together as in Maya/ego but in my experiences and observations, this is more of a convenience than the reality of this human non-reality. It’s just a language convention for my lazy linguistic inclination.
Have a look see for yourself…. and whatever you do… be cool. That’s the Eleventh Commandment.
Love ya, Jed.
