There are series of events that happen in our life span and every event, if it is a cause will have an effect and if it is an effect will certainly have a cause. Sometimes the cause or the effect will not be visible. It is in such rare cases that our ego misjudge and declares the event as something impossible and if that event which our ego has branded impossible happens it terms the event a “MIRACLE”. Our ego does not want our mind to believe in “REALITY”. The erroneous faith that we are the body, mind and intellect is the breeding ground for the ego to exist. It is that firm belief which make ego to possibly take our mind further away from our authentic Self.
When I think the thoughts which appear has to be about past or future. I will never have thoughts of present. If I think about now there is no thoughts and it will be void. If it is void then it has to be silence and in silence there is no mind. If there is no mind there is no ego. This is the reason why ego hates silence in my thoughts, as it will have no space and will just vanish. Ego will never allow the mind to accept that which is real as it worries about losing its identity.
Ego and Reality can never co-exist. Naturally reality is ever-present and this is the issue of concern to Ego and it wants to hide it from the mind. To hide it from the mind, Ego tricks the mind to think about unwanted things so that it too busy to inquire about eternal Truth or to dwell in the authentic Self. Mind will go inward to the Self if the struggle of the Ego to trick the mind is stopped. Amazingly blogging and thinking of a topic to write a blog is also a part of Ego fooling the mind though on a creative side, the only solace is it is not on the destructive side.
Reality has no extent and hence finding it cannot be in the process, but it can be the final destination. Ego does not easily accept this and wants to convince the mind that over a period of time reality will be revealed. But as long as my mind is in the process of searching for Reality, the Reality is always veiled. Why does reality not manifest itself? Simply because it does not want to have a conflict with the Ego which is a worthless fantasy which is self created for its own survival.
Even without Ego mind can exist but if mind thinks only of the present and this will make it aware of the evidence of reality in everything. There is no room to be judgmental as it identifies with the Self and is familiar with the “is-ness” of every other being. It is like when a restless night shift worker calls up the manager to inform about the machine breakdown and to confess the inability to fulfill the production target to be delivered in the morning. The manger has had the buffer stock from the day shift and reassures the worker and tells him not to panic. Like the manager if the mind also knows the reality it remains calm and not act as the restless worker. Mind can remain calm in the middle of worthless babble if it knows how momentary everything else around it is.
The mind has to be aware that reality has all the elements like Comprehension, Clarity, Care, Calm, Contentment and Courage. These elements endorse Unconditional Love, Tranquility, Plentitude, Well-being and Oneness with all. And this is MIRACLE.
