There is nothing so ignorant as the personal ego in humans that believes it knows something or anything about the reality of life.
The personal ego is of itself a figment of the imagination built on limited physical sense perceptions that it exists or even has any reality. How can anything that is of itself a non-reality even begin to attempt to grasp the reality of what life really is, both on a Universal scale and miniaturized down to an individual?
The personal ego binds and restricts an understanding of life as a whole and an individual's relationship to it. Oftentimes, one person, sensing that another person is deluding himself about something, will exclaim, "Get real!" But how can individuals really
, if what they have to work with
their personal egos
are unreal in and of themselves?
The Biblical phrase expresses: "He who loses himself (i.e., the personal ego) for my sake (i.e., Universal Consciousness or God) finds himself (i.e., God, Self, Reality or Christ Self, Mind, or Consciousness of Christ)."
