A discussion community revolving around Eckhart Tolle but not limited to him
Mystic wrote:The ego is a judgement machine that lives by making comparisons ...but of itself it has no life. Everyone is ultimately divine creations of Source. Forgiveness is to see past or overlook this dense ego covering or shrouding of the pure light that exists in everything and in others. Thus to see it in yourself too. We need to make comparisons and decisions to navigate the perceptual world though. The ego is a servant but it thinks that it is strong and thinks it is in charge. Many scriptures recommend to bind the strong man(ego) with mindful awareness.

It's the ground of everything you've experienced through the filter of space/time/matter. Your very nature is beyond time. Gently pay attention to your present moment experience in the body and this perspective will clarify. You don't need to try and imagine it or to force yourself not to have thoughts or experience within space / time. Just being present to your momentary experience is enough. Being aware that the awareness of thought is not the thought. That is enough.
I think I get too many paradoxes stuck in my head. Yet it seems like its nothing more than mental content, and the mind attempting to understand the big picture.
