Darkness cannot recognize light. Only light can recognize light. (Eckhart Tolle)
“Egos are drawn to bigger egos.” -Eckhart Tolle, Power of Now
Ego and spirit cannot communicate. Ego cannot recognize spirit or, if it does, considers it insignificant. An enlightened person identified with spirit, on the other hand, is easily capable of perceiving ego wherever it exists—though may be completely unsuccessful in effectively communicating with it.
No argument can convince an ego to relinquish control over a person or institution. That would be its death, and no entity chooses its own death. The only appropriate response to ego is, therefore, no response at all. No response can change anything for the better. More likely, to respond to ego is merely to activate ego in you by making it real.
Consciousness exists in every being—though a thick ego can appear to block it. It is our job, as teachers of the light, to connect with all beings within the realm of light, consciousness, spirit—which is experienced as the energy of love. You can’t go through an ego to connect in love, but you can go around it.
Giving love in unexpected ways and unconditionally to all without expectation of receiving anything is the only way to shine your light. This renders ego hopeless and unleashes all true power. Anything less than this is just honoring your ego. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
