“Short series – Be a hermit not a hermit crab”
Don’t E.dge G.od O.ut, instead kick out the FALSE EGO
A man said to the Buddha, “I want Happiness.” Buddha said, first remove “I”, that’s ego,
then remove “want”, that’s desire. See now you are left with only Happiness – Buddha
Hermit crabs attach poisonous sea Anemone on its shell and becomes partners for life. Our false ego is also poisonous and because of ignorance, we attach it to our back for a false sense of security and superiority. Soul or SELF wants to be free from any kind of false identification. Willing to be naked, vulnerable and absolutely fine with uncertainty. That’s basically the difference between body consciousness and soul consciousness.
Our evolution is a slow process and may even take one or more lifetimes. But this path is only for the Lion hearted and not for the weak hearted. Body consciousness is the cause of all suffering and soul consciousness is the end of all suffering.
