Here's to perseverance!

- Thomas Carlyle

"Experiencing life fully this moment, as it is, is the goal. Living this may be enlightenment.
The journey is the goal. Each instant is the goal. Life itself is the goal. Being present in the moment is the goal. Every instant we spend in "being present" is the goal. So the only goal would be to be present in every instant."

Well now, thank you. That does explain everything so clearly. Never thought of looking there. emoticon

It is so different from my simple understanding of the word. Ego V God. My Will v God's Will.

It is little wonder human beings do not understand one another sometimes. We might be using the same words and conveying a different message than the one we intend.

Thinking the Dali Lama has this sussed... "Kindness is my religion".

PS. I sure understand seeing things from my point of view - rather than what they actually are objectively. Had a good example yesterday. Although in looking back. He was also looking at things from his point of view. So it was kind of an equal missing of the space (or the reality) in the middle. We both came with expectations of why were there. There was no 'meeting' at all really because each of our expectations had no point of mutual reality in which to connect.

Turns out it was another very good learning experience on the journey to having "no expectations".

I posted the quote because I get caught up in my perception, seeing things as I ‘am’ as opposed to what they ‘are’. Trying to remember to frame what is happening as part of the whole as opposed to my ‘interpretation’ is a continuing challenge for me and anything that suggests the ego is not in ‘control’ brings a smile to my face.

Freud believed the ego was a good part of our psyche as opposed to the Id (unconscious pleasure seeker) and Superego (conscience, container of others’ values). My guess is he’d say the Id (I want it and I want it now) or the Superego (coulda, shoulda, woulda) were always in the driver seat.

"The poor ego has a still harder time of it; it has to serve three harsh masters, and it has to do its best to reconcile the claims and demands of all three...The three tyrants are the external world, the superego, and the id."
Sigmund Freud - New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis, (1932)

Well Ive bounced emoticon emoticon that thought around emoticon and around emoticon on google. emoticon all sorts of theories by emoticon but I still have no clue what this quote means.

Best I have about the ego is it's being the interloper in my domain and all other domains, a bit like a cuckoo's egg, planted there so someone other poor schmuk can raise the little horror.... emoticon

I gather you have this one sussed and I would love to share your insight.


PS. This is very good for the little wretch that dwells in me, it is shuddering in horror that I do not know the answer to every question that could be be presented.

The same for me Wispy - perhaps why the "Holy" Spirit contained in the quote was an awakening of St. Basil to the whole?

"I do believe that the original sources of all religions should be taught, because with that we will find our similarities, not just our differences. I believe that if Mohammed, Buddha, Jesus, and Moses all got together they would be best of friends because the spiritual basis of all religions is something that builds unity."

Good golly woman - you mean we share an ego as well!!!

"[The Holy Spirit] is present as a whole to each and wholly present everywhere. He is portioned out impassably and participated in as a whole. He is like a sunbeam whose grace is present to the one who enjoys him as if he were present to such a one alone, and still he illuminates land and sea and is mixed with the air. Just so, indeed, the Spirit is present to each one who is fit to receive him, as if he were present to him alone, and still he sends out his grace that is complete and sufficient for all. The things that participate in him enjoy him to the extent that their nature allows, not to the extent that his power allows.”

- Basil the Great

PS. Not sure why The Holy spirit is in quotes, but as it was I thought I should leave it like that.

I do not mean to offend anyone, but for me The Holy Spirit is so much wider than the Christian concept. I feel It touch my skin as the cool air against my arm and the breath in my body and the waves on the beach. I have been playing such a lovely game on the PC.
It has over 20 varieties of fish from the coral reefs. The back drops are so lovely, and not to mention the fish. But the delight of delights is the sound of the ocean slowly coming and going. It is just the most soothing thing to listen to along with all the varieties of fish ... And I enjoy the game as well. emoticon

This one is ringing in my ears this morning!!!!

I happened to be at a meeting with a person who has my nemesis personality. Can I really be like her - just the thought makes me shudder. Rather I think she is the person I would like to be, the person my ego would love to be. But rather than acknowledge that I prefer to criticise others who indulge in this behaviour. This is a new understanding for me about myself. It is a bit like smokers who stop smoking, they begin to criticize everyone who still smokes. I have realised that is the way my mind works in other areas. I would love to be in charge and let everyone know it... I have let the behaviour go - but it seems I am now envious of those who are still doing it. Really good to see this. Stopping doing something does not change me on the inside. I new matter to ask God for help with.

It certainly seems to make more sense that's for sure. It takes me a long time to learn some lessons - I will try every whichway except the solution - letting go and acceptance. :)

“Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess:

Lord, thou knowest better than myself that I am growing older and will soon be old. Keep me from becoming too talkative, and especially from the unfortunate habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and at every opportunity.

Release me from the idea that I must straighten out other peoples' affairs. With my immense treasure of experience and wisdom, it seems a pity not to let everybody partake of it. But thou knowest, Lord, that in the end I will need a few friends.

Keep me from the recital of endless details; give me wings to get to the point.

Grant me the patience to listen to the complaints of others; help me to endure them with charity. But seal my lips on my own aches and pains -- they increase with the increasing years and my inclination to recount them is also increasing.

I will not ask thee for improved memory, only for a little more humility and less self-assurance when my own memory doesn't agree with that of others. Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be wrong.

Keep me reasonably gentle. I do not have the ambition to become a saint -- it is so hard to live with some of them -- but a harsh old person is one of the devil's masterpieces.

Make me sympathetic without being sentimental, helpful but not bossy. Let me discover merits where I had not expected them, and talents in people whom I had not thought to possess any. And, Lord, give me the grace to tell them so.

Amen”
- Margot Benary-Isbert

I must have recognised myself in you when we first met then, way way before I had come to find and love myself. emoticon Thank you.

"We accept the love we think we deserve"
- Stephen Chbosky

Understanding this quote, because now I am coming to realise it is true. It is my journey in a nutshell really. No wonder I never felt loved - what I learned in infancy and later was that I was unloveable and destined for Hell..... no idea why I felt this so strongly, but I have none the less believed it all my life, along with the fact that it was all my own fault for being unlovable.

“Today is always here,' said Sethe. 'Tomorrow, never.”
- Toni Morrison, Beloved

I never read this book, nor think I had heard of it before looking up The Beloved after your post today.

It has such beauty, insight and uniqueness in the words. I had to read all the quotes.

"Give thanks for everything until you are absolutely sure it is not a blessing in disguise." Eastern Proverb.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world.." Mahatma Gandhi.

Make the decision to enjoy today. Do what you need to do for tomorrow - but live fully in TODAY.
