I Am/ We Are

This is a poem about the relationships between the spiritual ego, and the bodily ego. It speaks to the initially antagonistic relationship between the two, and the eventual merging of the little ego of the body with the big ego of consciousness. It was inspired by my own realization that the goal isn't to kill the little ego, but to marry/merge it with the higher consciousness. From this insight all LP cosmology, theology, and psychology flows!

Many, perhaps most, gurus and mystical experts will tell you that in order to advance you have to subdue, even kill, your ego. Presumably this is because your ego interferes with enlightenment and your higher self. Honestly, that's a bunch of bull cocky. Saying that you have to destroy your ego sets up an internal dynamic of conflict where you yourself become the enemy of your own enlightenment. It's just not true. So, rather than seeing your bodily ego as antagonistic to spiritual advance, this poem identifies your ego as a reflection of your higher self. The goal here is not to eliminate that reflection, but to polish the mirror and purify the vessel in order to allow the light of your higher self to shine clearly through. In essence, I AM/WE ARE is a love poem sent from your higher self to your bodily ego. We are one!
