To Whom Does the Ego Belong?

Questioner: It is not the ego per se. It is the identity in the ego. You say "*your* ego" in the comment; so to whom does the ego belong to?

Silence is the Most Potent Diksha

Questioner: I hear and take in the information that "silence is the most potent diksha." I read things like "being still, doing nothing is the only thing that is not wasting time." I believe these things to be true and my life has become more internal and quiet the past few years. When boredom arises I sense that Spirit wouldn't be bored, yet a feeling always comes around after a while of "now what?" A belief I need to or want to do something. I feel like I must be missing something if I feel like the box keeps getting smaller instead of bigger. There are fewer places and people that I authentically connect with the more inward I go. My husband and I explore teachings like A Course in Miracles and experience glimpses of pure Joy. What good is it all if I'm just sitting in my house contemplating or being silent. There is sometimes a desire to join with others. Strangely my deepest experiences of silence has been in group meditation. I'm not sure if my question is clear, but can you speak to any of this? Thank you.
Questioner: I accept that my true nature is God in her entirety, and not just a part of the whole. However, I have trouble understanding why, in that case, I am only aware of a small portion of the phenomenal world, both with regard to the "external" environment and the "interior" of other psyches. Yes, I know that it is not my Self but my bodymind that has this limited awareness, and that the contents of consciousness are a passing, illusory show which are irrelevant to the open space of Pure Consciousness, but from what I understand realisation of the Self does not necessarily involve expanded awareness of the relative world, involving siddhis like remote viewing or clairvoyance, let alone omniscience, which it seems somehow would follow if the the Self is nondual and I am it. Can you explain?

The Rise of the Paradoxshram

We are at the cusp between an age that is dying and a new one that is being born. In the increasingly critical fermentation of a rotting economy mulching with a devastated ecology, human mastery has become a joke. The crown of creation has lost its credibility.

There are those who still desperately dive into ditches of denial, while others even more desperately attempt to keep the chaos under control. But those who are honest confess the hopelessness, the impotence, even the impossibility of it all. And yet all the while, revolutionary shifts are occurring under the malfunctioning radar screen. We are witnessing the rise of new social forms and new spiritual capacities.

The Virtue of Constraction

An advanced student of Sat Yoga recently invented a new and subtle concept of great universal relevance, and I feel the need to share this with y’all.

It is the concept of constraction. Many of you may not realize that you are experiencing constraction, because it is often a state that appears as a compaction, rather than being open to introspection. But as the term indicates, it represents a multi-leveled consciousness that seemingly consists, at first glance, only of the elements of constriction and distraction. This produces an emotional reaction of contraction and restriction, leading to constraint and frustration.
