Yes I know what you mean - this is the first time I have actually been brave enough to call myself an artist and it has actually paid off! I owe it all to you Huw, my creative friend. Lovely to be exhibiting with you again - here's to a successful 2012! lyd x
Surrendering the ego is not easy! It's not automatic! It is a process!
A process that has to be reached!
Ego is the mask that is shown to the World - it is the illusion/ the false self. Ego can only cause misery - it keeps people weak and fragile, and away from knowing their True Self !! The ego feeds greed, desire, envy, stress etc. Once a person understands this they have already begun surrendering it ! The moment you dissolve ego - you drop all conditioning ( from parents, teachers, society, culture etc.). You realise now that you have freedom - and that you have 'always' had freedom.
I congratulate you, Huw. You have clearly reached this point in your journey of Self Realisation !! As Osho says - ' Surrendering is not throwing away responsibility. Surrender is simply an indication of Trust. Trust in yourself !! It needs strength - Great strength !!
When the ego 'dies' - we find Bliss ( Pure Bliss - the Pure Silence Within) It is more of a 'remembering' because Bliss IS our True Nature - it was never lost in the first place!! Surrendering is the beginning of a great journey' !!! Have a great journey Huw in 2012 (and beyond) and find that Silence Within - for you have great inspirational work to do !!! Beth ( Cardiff ) xxx
