Godly ego

If you found God, what would you do with that finding?
Would you tell everyone “I found God”? Is that all? Would you look for believers?
Wouldn’t that make you special? An automatic authority, a “chosen one”?
Look all the benefits you found by finding “god”!!
That is the ego trip that followers do not realize until they become conscious of their ego.

“God” only enhances their personality.  Just as when we say: “The president is a good friend of mine. He listens to me.”

A wannabe believer may say: “Where is God? I want to speak with him. Ask him some questions and ask him to help me, save me, pamper me, solve things for me…”
That is another ego trip.

Let us say I get to speak with “God.” Let us say that “God” was shown to me: That enhances ME. I am SOMEBODY now.

After all, it is all about ME.

A religious follower may need to ask this: ” Am I DOING these religious things because I am looking for some profit for ME?

In the Brahma Kumaris community, that could translated as: AM I DOING “service” so I can go to heaven, get a high status, make my kingdom, become an angel, be saved, become a powerful soul, etc?

In the Brahma Kumaris there are many items to “accomplish.” Things to keep our minds busy. That is, many ego trips to travel before getting to heaven.

BEING is before DOING. I could be DOING many “serviceable work” but it is all for ME. I may be opening many centers and proselitizing and experiencing hardships; without much to eat or sleep… but… I am DOING all of those things just for ME: I want a kingdom, I want to be know as a “serviceable soul,” I want to achieve heaven, I want to be SOMEONE now and in the future.

That DOING is worth nothing. The merchant mentality, the business mind, is only thinking about personal profit in the material world as well as the spiritual. It is the same consciousness of “money back guaranteed” applied into “spirituality.”

But, what can be DONE?  After all, that is the way we ARE (BEING.)

What we ARE is what is worth “the same on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

For the common good.
