So you think you are big, eh?
Ok. I will tell you how big you are.
Take my hand. Come… Levitate…let your feet leave the ground and head up towards the sky. Now, as you fly up in the sky, look down. What do you see? Is any human being, an average of 5 to 5’5 feet tall, visible to your eyes? All that you can see are skyscrapers reduced to anthills and and the unfathomable grasslands shrinked to the size of your notebook sheets. Got an idea how big you are? Nah? Not yet? Fine. Let’s get a little higher…. Let’s levitate unto the outskirts of the planet. A little more…. Soar away from the planet. Watch carefully! A terrifyingly small ball, where we claim to live in, and, the awe creating envelope of the universe surrounding it. The cosmos… In that, the proud earth-an infinitesimally small dot! In that dot, we are even smaller, much, much smaller…. Billions and trillions of times smaller…. Infinitesimally small dots!!!
Yes! It is. Now tell me, what makes you feel you are big enough to be revered for whatever you do? What makes you feel, that you deserve a lot lot of respect and recognition, and all that, with a penny-pinching mindset; ‘close-fisted, reluctant to give and always ready to take’ kinda attitude? See where you stand.
I just gave you an idea of how small and insignificant you are. Now you ask yourself if you are big atleast in your heart. Then why? Why, at all, do you want what you don’t deserve? You get enraged when someone picks at you, when someone humiliates you, when someone is being rude with you. What is the use? Who are you? Ask your-self. An infinitesimally small dot! And, see, ego is a very clever gamer. Watch how it has imprinted the illusion in your mind: ‘You are too great to be talked rudely with.’ ( lol)
Here is a wonderful knowledge-bead for you then. You must take it into your kind consideration: Yes! You are big! You are as big as the universe! How?
Now you are the subordinate of your ego. That ego, that makes you go tipsy with the illusion that you are the master. With trifle achievements and abilities, you start thinking that you are invincible! You are the ultimate and the only person who can do or know a certain thing. You start condemning others disregarding their abilities. You eventually forget that ‘ Every father has a father!’ You start visualising a certain ability or a talent or an achievement or a post as your proprietary ownership. This does nothing but fuels your dumb ego!
And when you become the master of your ego, you automatically assume the form of the cosmos! The illusion of ego makes you feel contrary to what you are now and once you are enlightened, your level of existence pervades into that have been formerly contrary, and the contrary becomes your truth! You realise what you exactly are and don’t wait for others’ acknowledgement to celebrate your existence. You, realise that no-one’s presence or absence in your life, and no one’s recognition or denunciation can neither add nor subtract any amount of you from you! You enjoy the ultimate freedom once you break-free from the shackles of your ego. You become your master and the universe within you, automatically becomes subservient to you!
