What is the point of people like me doing what we are doing, going beyond human and even soul perspectives and perceptions? In actuality going beyond perceptions and perspectives all together, for only can perceptions and perspectives exist through our egos.
The point is, in a reality where the ego has become highly abusive to energy as a whole, balancing this out with the non-ego (egoless) part of all of us seems like the wise thing to do. In actuality, people like me are simply a reaction to an action hell bent on abusing energy. It's not a counterreaction where a response is in opposition to an action, it is simply a reaction to the abuse of energy, especially when so many people want and even need to find an answer to our abuse of energy as a whole. In truth, to find an answer to the counteractive response of an abused energy. Make no mistake, an abused energy is in counteraction to the abuse it has received from the ego in control.
As I have stated in a previous post, the ego can never experience actual enlightenment, all that the ego can do is become aware that the egoless part of ourselves is of this enlightenment. The ego simply becomes aware of the egoless part of ourselves being enlightened, thus giving a perception that the ego has become enlightened. Yes, the ego becomes aware but not to the point of enlightenment, for the ego is unable to exist within an enlightened state for there is no ego in this state. Imagine ignorance existing in the same space of pure awareness, it is impossible unless the ignorance becomes aware of it's enlightened self. The last thing the ego in control desires to do is become this aware, however, the ego that isn't in control, in other words the ego that is simply being of the ego without being controlling, can become aware of it's own enlightened self.
At no time separate the ego and egoless self though, the desire to be only of the egoless self is purely of a controlling ego, for only the ego in control desires this much control and stature over and above the ego. Why have so many of us humbled ourselves to the ego? Why does the ego even exist when our egoless selves are so enlightened? Because the egoless self doesn't desire to be only of some kind of higher stature, the egoless self is aware it is all of what the ego is as well as what the non-ego is.
So what's my point? To keep in balance between the ego and non-ego, in other words work in unison with the energies and creations of the ego as well as the non-ego. As I stated in a previous post, there is nothing wrong with materialism, it is simply that we abuse materialism as our controlling egos do of any energy. Yes, balance materialism with spirituality. Become aware that our controlling egos will be abusive to energy if there is no balance.
To become too spiritual in a material (physical) world is also an abuse of energy, the abuse of the material world in favour of a non-material world. What part of us favours one above the other? The ego in control. How abusive can the controlling ego be to energy as a whole? Your enlightened self, or as I prefer being, doesn't desire to be of one or the other, especially one over and above the other, it is what it is, nothing more, nothing less. In truth, there are no perceptions or perspectives of one being above the other in this state, it is simply ego and non-ego, abuse of energy or working in unison with energy. Imagine for one moment working in unison and in harmony with energy as a whole, this includes everything the ego has deemed to be negative or toxic!! I cannot express in words what would occur in this case, the egos perception of nirvana or unconditional love doesn't even come close.
Are people like me in counteraction against the abuse of energy? If a lot of people weren't even trying to become less abusive to energy as a whole, there would be no reaction from people like me. There is no point in awakening a controlling ego hell bent on ignorance, to try this would be a counterreaction but this is not the case. All we are trying to do is assist or guide an ego that is trying to become less abusive to energy, in other words our reaction is simply to do with their egos making an effort to help itself from being so abusive to energy. There is no way that people like me desire to assist a controlling ego who only desires to exist with its own natural environment. Yes, abusing energy is of a natural occurrence to a controlling ego. At no point to the egoless self is this perceived as being below the stature of the egoless self, it is what it is, an existence that can be experienced or not by the soul. Of course a soul that is humbling, humbling itself to the controlling egos environment is not a problem.
Who reads my material, is it an ego in control or an ego aware of it's enlightened self in some way, even subconsciously? The answer is too obvious to me for you are the one's I write for as well as myself, in actuality I probably write more for myself for I am definitely not alone.

I do get some insightful people asking insightful questions at times, is not love the universal answer?
Very good question Charlene, is love the universal answer? A question related to this is, is love the ultimate state? To refer to love being the universal answer is stating that love is the ultimate state to all other states. To perceive this takes the separation of energy, an ultimate state separate from all other states.
What part of us separates energy? Ego, for only through the ego can energy be separated into higher and lower forms of energy. The egoless self perceives no separation for there is no separation in this state therefore no universal answer or ultimate state, it is simply energy or if you like of God.
Yes, to the ego that is aware there is a perceived universal answer therefore an ultimate state above all other states. This is how the ego in control works, there has to be an ultimate state of pleasure for the pleasure of the ego.
Also, everyone has a different perception of what love is, even unconditional love. How many multinationals have an absolute unconditional love of power and money, they will do anything to acquire this, even to the extent of destroying the planet. This is purely unconditional, where even the conditions of the planet are ignored. In truth, there is no difference between unconditional love of spiritually aware people and multinational, it is all to do with serving the ego in control, for it's all to do with what makes us feel good. Pleasing the ego above all else no matter what.
I know this is hard to perceive but all of what is, is the ultimate state, in a sense, to the egoless self. Yes, as our egos become aware, our ego will feel powerful feelings of love, what the ego does with this from then on will make a difference. The ego out of control will often only desire to see this state as being some ultimate state, above all other states. What occurs most often in this state? The separation of our egos from anything negative, negative to our egos feeling good, it is all about the pleasure of our controlling egos.
I can be in any environment and still feel blissful, as a lot of us are at present within this kind of chaotic reality. This isn't because of separating good from bad, positive from negative, like a lot of people are trying to do to sustain this state, it is to do with humbling myself to the negatives as of the positives without separation or desire. I don't have a desire to be only of positive or of an ultimate state; all I try to express is balance and a state of the absence of the abuse of energy. If the rest of my environment is not of my own or accepting of my environment, so be it, it is what it is.
Yes, without effort, the ego can find itself in a loving blissful environment, at no time in this environment is this state perceived as an ultimate state or universal answer, it is simply a state of the absence of the abuse of energy. Of course to the ego that is experiencing the abuse of energy, this state of the absence of the abuse of energy will seem like an ultimate state.
Sorry Charlene for such a long answer.
We do this so often, anything that makes the ego feel more powerful, secure and makes us feel good inside, is often given some kind of God status, an absolute state of desire. As money and power are given a God status by materialists, unconditional love is given a God status by various western spiritually aware people. What is with this God status in relation to unconditional love, especially considering unconditional love is a very small part of the process of becoming aware? They are still fumbling in the dark for they obviously know not what they do. Is this because our egos so often attaches itself to a God like status symbol? All other awareness to this God status symbol is negative and should be denounced in some way, even when the awareness comes from actual experiences and occurrences!! Actually, any awareness that goes beyond a God status symbol is often scorned the most, especially if supported with actual experiences, occurrences and supporting data.
This is like the perception of good battling it out with evil, this is clearly an ego perception of good against bad. Good in this case is given a God like status symbol by the ego. Evil simply cannot exist within the presence of good, a pure aware state or a state of God. Good in this case simply means awareness compared to ignorance. Evil, being bad, is simply a state of ignorance; imagine how a state of deliberate ignorance would react to a state of pure awareness. There is no battle for only the ego can battle itself out with itself, in other words go to war with itself. To the ego, there is a good and bad for only can the ego separate energy like this. What you have in this case is a partially aware consciousness battling it out with an ignorant conciseness. Of course only being particularly aware means we are still abusing energy, this of course, to the ego, means we are only partially good.
Look at this way, once you become aware, how hard is it to then become unaware? The only way to become unaware is to manipulate energy, in other words abuse energy to serve a desired state, or, to create a God like status symbol that keeps us unaware of anything more. I have experienced this myself, evil, in other words ignorance, cannot exist within the presence of a state of pure awareness, unless the state of pure awareness is manipulated. Of course being aware to this degree is the awareness of how energy is manipulated, as a lot of people today are obviously aware. Yes, conscious states of ignorance are at war with the good, but, a pure state of awareness is not at war with ignorance (evil). If the ego has to perceive a God like status symbol, like unconditional love, let it be a state of pure awareness instead, or if you like, a true state of God for ignorance has no status in this state.

I was asked recently about my thoughts on Buddhism, the following was my reply.
There are different variants of Buddhism. I don't hold to that one ideology is the answer for everyone for there is never one answer to anything.
Buddhism has its boundaries or doctrines as of any ideology or ism, I am not myself into limiting my consciousness like this. "All else other than the ultimate state of pure awareness or nothingness is an illusion", I don't myself limit my consciousness to these perspectives or perceptions. In saying this, Buddhism teaches one to cope better in an ego created reality, as a lot of ideologies do.
I find that Taoism and Hinduism are far less limiting, of course this depends on how you use these ideologies. I prefer Buddhism to materialism or westernized atheism myself. I should also say that materialism and atheism have their place as well. How many people would have starved to death if it wasn't for materialism? Materialism has given us more soul experiences to be experienced, however, when materialism is abused and misused, it becomes too destructive when not balanced out with the likes of Buddhism or spirituality as a whole.
You see, to me there is never one answer or absolute state.
I wrote the following to someone in relation to the year being an emotional rollercoaster.
It is only as bad as we make it, why give it any more energy that it's worth? Learn from it and move on, of course at times easier said that done. I often look at it this way these days, it is what it is, nothing more, nothing less. As soon as we get into the negatives and positives, it's always more that it should be.
How often do we allow ideologies and isms to limit our consciousness? Probably the same amount we limit our own consciousness to certain specifics like positives and negatives, or, what is real and what is an illusion. Is Buddhism limiting consciousness to certain specifics? As of any ideology or ism, it is the way we use Buddhism that is limiting. As soon as we limit ideologies or isms to certain specifics, we are abusing energy as energy itself is of unlimited potentiality. It is like constricting energy to a certain space where motion is restricted to certain motions only. Often any motion outside these restricted boundaries is usually referred to as something negative and subsequently dealt with. Materialism, like religion or any other ideology, is fine when in balance within the environment that supports materialism. When used out of balance with the natural environment, abuse of energy is created and often accepted by the abusers, in other words we become conditioned to abusing energy through limiting it's potentiality to certain specifics, often to primarily serve the ego.
It is the same old story, if energy doesn't serve the elite, the ego in control, it is dealt with, usually discarded as something negative or illusionary. The elite can be a multinational but it can also be of people who try to be only of an elite or absolute state of being. An elite state of being in Buddhism is egoless, a state of pure awareness or nothingness, the funny thing is, once of this state, perceptions of negatives and positives, what is real and what is not real are absent, everything becomes what it is, nothing more, nothing less.
In a state in the absence of the ego, there is no negative and positive, what is an illusion and what is real, because there is no separation of energy in an egoless state, only through the ego can separation be perceived and put into motion. Look at it like this, as soon as you separate energy, energy becomes of motion, of the ego, of course separation of energy can only be implemented through the ego. This means the separation of energy to what is positive and negative, what is real and what is an illusion, is of the state of ego but a state that has always existed as well.
Once you get an imbalance of ego and egolessness, motion and motionlessness, through separation of energy is when an abuse of energy is often created. How many of us only desire to be of an elite state or status, where all else is discarded in one way or another thus creating a reality of abuse of energy? Who desires to be subservient or inferior to an elite status? The ego in control always desires to be of an elite status thus creating an imbalance in energy as of any separation of energy can. Yes, separate energy but be wise in how you separate energy, try to avoid abusing energy when separating energy. Balance is indeed the key here.
I am subservient to the environment that is presently supporting my being, I would not have it any other way, accept to balance out my existence with the environment my existence is existing in and my ego (soul) is experiencing. As there is nothing wrong or negative with the ego or even the ego in control, there is nothing wrong with materialism. However, as it is of the way we use ideologies and isms, as soon as we become abusive to energy, we create a reality in line with this abuse. Try to remember, the only part of us that can see a wrong or negative in the ego and materialism, is the ego in control. There isn't even a wrong in being abusive, it's just being excessively abusive in the way we manipulate energy isn't a wise thing to do, not if we want to live in peace and harmony.
In all, it is what it is when we choose to abuse energy, nothing more, nothing less.......
