Doorway to the Divine


When you identify with ego, with individuality, separateness, and scarcity, you see yourself as naked and vulnerable in an unfriendly world. Transcend your ego, and you discover that behind every perceived separation from spirit is a doorway to the divine.


Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.
Simone Weil

Lose yourself in ego and you unconsciously act selfishly. Lose yourself in spirit and you consciously act selflessly.

Once you get hold of selflessness, you’ll be dragged from your ego and freed from many traps. Come, return to the root of the root of your self.
Rumi

Ego directs you to judge others by the way they look and act. Spirit urges you to look past superficialities and honor the divine essence of all.

As we persist in judging one another by what we appear to be, we are all taking part in a great masquerade.
Joel Goldsmith

The voice of spirit sings out, “One for all, and all for one.” The voice of ego smugly announces, “It’s all about me, all the time.”

Ego has a voracious appetite, the more you feed it, the hungrier it gets.
Nathaniel Bronner, Jr.

Although your ego obscures your vision of the world beyond your senses, it is indispensable. By enabling you to navigate the physical world, your ego unwittingly prepares you for your eventual reunion with higher consciousness.

Enlightenment is your ego’s biggest disappointment.

  1. ArrVee Says:

    without necessarily being aware of it, we oftentimes get in touch with that Divine part of ourselves that our Maker has planted deep within us.

    sometimes we experience something that resonates with and awakens that Divine part of ourselves, causing us to react in interesting ways. For example, when we hear a melody of utter and sublime beauty, we are at a loss for words, expressing ourselves in “oohs” and “aahs”, incoherent screams, and even tears, all because our physical senses are woefully inadequate in handling the phenomenon at hand.

    in our darkest hours, we sometimes get a moment of inspiration and clarity that pulls us through it all, beyond what our physical bodies are normally capable of.

    when we are bound in love with someone, we instinctively know that we can reach out beyond space and time to our loved ones, and are comforted that our love for each other is forever.

    when we hurt someone, we inevitably find that we hurt too, a hint that we are all inextricably bound together.

    we instinctively ponder our reason for existence and are comforted by events that affirm our contributions to this world and put meaning in our life. We also care deeply about how we will be remembered when we are gone from this physical world, and are terrified by the thought of being forgotten.

    Thank you for those insights, ArrVee. Yes, there is great freedom in releasing ourselves from the suffocating grip of ego. Identifying with spirit and living only to serve God is as liberating as it is joyous.
