The Gift of Life Is You, My Love.


Many of us were taught to deny the body, the character, the personality, and that which we call form. But my loves, form is the formless manifested as a gift to itself for no other reason than the joy of being this appearance called "you." And so I sense this old school term "ego" will soon be laid in the dust because it's utterly confusing, and it has become the new devil on the spiritual path. And as long as we have an antithesis or an opposer, we will have a heaven and a hell, a sinner and a saint, a good and a bad and a better or a worse. But if we take a look at the root origin of ego, it's Latin meaning is "I," but this "I" is also the roman numeral one.


So what am I suggesting? There is no separate evildoer called ego or I. There's only the beloved, magical mystery appearing as these words, as the character reading them and everything you see and don't see.


In short, there were never two, and there is no splinter of self that needs to be removed.

There is only this. Call it God, call it love, call it as you will. But the ending you seek is the end of denying yourself the gift of yourself.


From love to love itself,

Anna

Hello Anna ... I am from Israel and I found out about you a few months ago .... I want to say thank you for who you are and what you do. I will do everything I can to help your work. Your body language and the shape you come in speaks made me record your voice and I started making music with it ....

This made me think of the expression "bad form" - I guess at least it qualifies that it's about the form. There's still the word bad though.


Of course it's more the noun-ness of it, as if there is a reified thing. It has to be seen as real first and then judged as good or bad. Neither good nor bad really cares about understanding anything, the attitude is like if you 'know' it's one or the other that's all you need to know about it, without any kind of meaningful qualification.

Two is too simplistic. It's too lazy. Good or bad is just one of the two. And of course it has to be judged as terrible, because it's…

This message is profoundly revelational. Religious traditions, and especially today in modern "spiritual" thought, have dichotomized the "ego" as something to be gotten rid of. Thus the duality and the self-imposed battle. The ego is a wave in the ocean, that expresses its uniqueness within the ocean. Your "ego" has practical use in the world of form, and what spiritual teachers assail as the negative aspect of "ego" is simply ignorance of the truth, expressing itself. My "ego" is why I like chocolate cake more than cheese cake, or why I prefer opera to country music. It's a means to understand and relate to the world around me. What is negatively characterized, and anthropomorphized as "egoic" is just a limitation…

Sheesh! You've got a way with words, Anna. No gift wrapping here! The light of understanding you bring is sheer Vermeer, and scant Rembrandt. So simple, so plain. Regaling. The gift of being the gift made apparent, transparently.(or transparent apparently?) Thank you! What love you give🌞
