The more we dissolve into the unknown, into the invisible,
into the divine, the more unique we become.
Most of us fear oblivion, being tossed aside, overlooked.
But this is only the discontent ego craving and craving,
clawing attention in the visible world.
And ego is the most ordinary thing in the world
because everyone around us is an egoist
and so human societies are mostly dysfunctional.
We can only look to the great spiritual leaders
to see egoless-ness in action: Buddha, Jesus,
Mahavir, Allah – they had dissolved completely and
so were able to epitomize love and compassion.
We may aspire to becoming ’empty,’ ‘nothing,’
like a ‘valley,’ but this only means that we get rid
of the spoiled child of the ego. In this condition,
we are, we purely are,
no longer influenced or contaminated by the transient ego.
So, dissolve into the great still silence for
glorious moments in the day ahead and experience
your uniqueness for yourself.
This is the stuff of human life and happiness.
