Q: Does that mean that the purpose of the ego will end?
A: Well, the purpose of the ego will end, as the ego has understood its purpose. But it will not end in the sense that there will be no need for it. You are not going to just dissolve into some kind of cosmic bliss. There will still be work to be done. There will still be pockets of awareness in individuals scattered around the globe, who are not ready to wake up yet. And they have that right. No one is forced into an awakening. But there will be then, let us call it the romantic ideal of fathoming the guilt, the fear, the doubt, so well that it dissolves. It is gone. It is history. It no longer exists. In fact, it will be understood at that point in awareness to have never existed. It is like the memory of a bad dream, and you awaken, and you know it was false, it was not real. And in that point the ego is radically transformed.
You can call it by whatever name you want: Enlightenment, the awakening of the Heart, the Christ consciousness being born, the second coming, the birth of Divinity within, new wine - understanding from your scriptures - you have the ability to be born in consciousness again. And that is what we are speaking of.
So your beautiful uniqueness will be radiantly present. There will just be more joy. For example, if you meet a friend, there is now for most of you, this secret little exiting expectation, "Oh, here is someone possibly I have known before. Possibly there is the capacity for deepening of friendship. Possibly we might reveal something one to another of the beauty that we are afraid to admit to, but we know is present." As that shift becomes more powerful, it will not be just a slight little possibility, it will be an absolute reality.
This is what normally takes place when people who are aware
meet one another. They understand the inner workings of the other. And they are open as though they are transparent, that the other may see the inner workings of the heart, and all is reinforced in the joy. We always like to tease and say Jesus and Buddha hang out in the same bar in heaven. It is a very subtle way to suggest that they have no conflict over the states of consciousness they carry.
Now, if you get a very typically good Christian and typically good Buddhist together, they might get stuck on the differences of approach, and the details, the language, the various forms of meditation and prayer. And the expectations of what heaven is about. And a belief in a deity or a non-deity etc, etc. That is human consciousness trying to decide what Divinity is about. But when you experience the Divine, you don't have to have an argument over who is right. You share the experience. So that is the kind of an awakening that the ego will be transformed into. Do you understand?
Q: Yes. I have a follow-up question to this, because I am thinking about my own background. I have my specific training in the alternative health field, and for a while during my training I thought that that was the only way. I am realizing that it is not so, but many of us, even in the alternative field, are still saying that, "Mine is the one way."
A: Well, this will remain until the mind is completely merged into the process of, I don't want to use the word association, it is as though the mind of the heart, the mind of the soul, the mind of Divinity itself, becomes united. And therein no longer are you measuring experience in forms of theoretical knowledge - beliefs about experience. These may vary. Individuals will each carry their own brand of reflective thought of what reality is to them. And that may change, but there is still that anchoring in the belief about what reality is. But when you are in reality, you don't have to construct or support or feel attached to, anything other than the truth itself.
It is not about one person's brand of heaven being better than another's. You take joy in the sharing and the co-creativity, and the Spirit of insight that may flow. People will still find amazing powers of love awakening in them, particularly in the need that someone else may have. If someone is still troubled, there is some resistance, their need will draw through you more of the miraculous. So think not that, perhaps in fifty or one hundred years from now, you find yourself in Spirit and you think, "Well, what then will I do? What good will be healing? What good will be prophecy? What good will be clairvoyance? What good will it do to shape a pot on the potters wheel?" All of these things which give richness of experience, will be with you.
And the extension of that richness, of that love, will find just a more profound capacity to function. The periodic doubt that may creep into the mind now, "Perhaps I am not really doing God's will?" will be replaced with a sense of, "God's will lies before me and I walk into it gladly and abide in the privilege of that process. And I remain in that process, whatever it would bring."
The trust becomes cemented. The details of life that are so agonizingly thought through now, will be no longer such. You will not struggle with choices. You will flow with the insight of your deepest desire and allow that to guide you. And let us make clear that we are not speaking of just some point in the future when you are no longer bound by a physical body. That state of awareness may be fully present now, in the body. And so much greater then is the joy when you have mastered the awakening that allows you to feel that heavenly consciousness being part of you, while you are yet in the body.
Because while you are in the body, it is like a lever: You can shift
energy more powerfully for other people when you are in the body and they are in the body. Don't know if we can make a clear analogy with that. It is a bit like a transformer. If you take the electricity you use in your home, it has to be brought down in voltage. It is far too high a voltage as it traverses the wires across vast distances. Something of that might be said, that while you are in Spirit, you can functions with very high voltages, but to step them down so they have usefulness in the physical dimension. There is the need of some form of physical contact, a transforming process. And when you are in the body and you awaken, you become a transformer. Sounds a bit crude, but it is a good analogy, we think at the moment at least. Perhaps we will come up with something better.
(Q: Condensed: a question on inventions for healing the physical environment)
A: Oh, I think once people begin to awaken, all manner of technologies will step forward to assist in the process. As again, we have already suggested, the world is just an idea in the mind of the Divine. And finding the balance, to find the clarifying of the airs, the removal of toxins, the industrial waste products, all these things may seem insurmountable obstacles at the moment, but they will not be. The most important thing is the shift in human consciousness. The rest will follow easily from that.
