Expanding the Ego.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


When I say ` Aham brahmasmi` am I not expanding my ego beyond the realms of this world? Is it not possible that by thus expanding my ego, I transcend the trivialities of the world around me and thus become restful.


The Sanskrit phrase aham brahmāsmi, means “I am Brahman, the wholeness of existence.  The “I” in the phrase refers to the atman, the universal aspect of individual existence, not the small self of the ego. It is an affirmation of the enlightened truth that the pure existence of our individual reality is the same as the pure existence of the universe.  That cognition of one’s essential reality as universal reality takes one far beyond the trivial concerns of daily life and the ego.
