Namaste; Yesterday I was discussing the origin of the ego. Volumes of information can be found on the ego, however suppositions on where the ego comes from are much harder to find. Don Juan teaches in the following about entities he calls "fliers", I want to appeal to your analytical mind. Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradiction between the intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal.
In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous maneuver; stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind. The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now.
If we consider these fliers to be the ego, then one would ask, why did the fliers have a supressed impact on collector gather man juxaposed to modern techno man? I have seen reference to similar assessments of the ego's origin in other publications. Never have I been able to find other suppositions for the ego's origin but for some reason I feel there is much more to learn. I wonder if these channeled and shamanic visions of the ego depicted as an alien invasion of our body is not a metaphore for the ego body. I wonder if the ego is not a bandwith of energy which is accessable to those conscious bodies which vibrate at familiar fequencies. As we develop our godself we vibrate higher and higher until we are able to leave the ego energy to exist in a dormant state. I love the ego as a part of the divine experience and value the many and continued lessons I have learned at the behest of the ego. I accept the ego to be a part of the all, I accept it's godliness as the arrow that leads me to the essence of love. Where did we first meet this beautiful beast? Is it a function of the trauma caused by an alien race changing our DNA, is it a field of energy to be tapped like an ocean, or is it something else?
