Well, this is a BIG ONE—at least to me. Yusef tells us how the Human EGO began. He tells us that humanity was quite peaceful once. It was “a time of great and wondrous experience of life in the physical—Spirit experiencing the physical”. But the simplest concept of “more and less” was introduced onto the Earth. Then, in order to gain “more” and protect against “less”, humans developed a protective mechanism, the Ego, that separated us from each other.
When I think of how simple it was to spiral a joyful, loving, peaceful community into the illusion of separateness that turned neighbor against neighbor, I am astonished and saddened. Wow! We have had eons of waging war to gain “more” and protect against “less”, but at last we are awakening to the notion that we are all in this together, and that peace is again a possibility for humanity.
This is a teaching on EGO.
This aspect of the human experience was necessary for the preservation of humanity when it shifted from a peaceful existence to other than peace.
Forces intruded into the physical to make it aware of ‘more and less’. The simple concept of ‘more and less’ set into motion the whole range of ego response that looks like what is found in your world today.
Now this is very real. A [seemingly] needed protection, though the “need” was faulty and an illusion, turned humanity away from the joy and peace it knew and toward the many “dualities” present in your world.
The time of peace in your physical world was very real. A time of great and wondrous experience of life in the physical–Spirit experiencing the physical. What a wondrous thing!!!
Now this protective aspect that arose during the illusion of need became itself—reveling in its own power. Clinging and nourishing its power with degrees of duality in the physical world.
Those more open to it used it to become seemingly more “powerful” and thus the illusion continued and grew stronger. Humanity was susceptible/vulnerable to the influence suggesting ‘more and less’. A simple idea that contaminated the peace that existed then.
