Random Thoughts on Ego...

Ever thought of corruption inside mind?

The goodness in us hates the badness. This is not good. This is just Ego saying ‘I’ am good, why can’t that bad ugly part go away and never bother me again so that ‘I’ could be the perfect manifestation of mankind to the world ‘I’ am living in.

We sometimes think of accepting humanity and move forward with it. In that moment of accepting humanity we get peace. Being peaceful by being kind is the result. We are always chasing this good and bad part while trying to be kind. The very best of our soul always try to become very kind. But we’ll find that we aren’t much kind when we try to manifest perfect kindness and things keep getting in our way. Who so ever it is, outside or inside, they are just bothering us, the pureness inside us. In order to defeat this we go to war. (I got to know this from my own experiences.) Me and my peace and who is disrupting my peace and what am ‘I’ suppose to do to set him straight so that they will stop. And this thing escalates. This is external as well as internal.

Now if we are willing to be both human and divine, both limited and limitless, both pure and defile, both right and wrong, both ignorant and enlightened then the story has to stop. But if we decide that, ‘I’ cannot settle for both, ‘I’ should have a one above the other, because thats the way ‘I’ will know that ‘I’ have succeed. ‘I’ have won. This is ego.

Now the question is whether to accept both good and bad or try to achieve what our ego says.


PS: reading about Buddhism these days and watching some random videos.
