According to modern standards, the most brutal fight of the consciousness is with the so called “I”, I-dentity, True Self versus so called Ego. Ego in latin means “I” too.
So what are we talking about?
Technically speaking We are the last rings of a chain that started with the creation of the World or alien failed eugenetic for Ufo fans.
We are what our ancestors were.
We simply carry that deeply inside, it is called DNA by some I guess.
And between ancestors everybody had Saints and Sinners like Mick Jagger would sing.
It is Our responsability to attune Ourselves to our past in a very conscious way. Elevating the Souls of the Sinners or the Low Ones and emulate and take example from the Saints.
And even if you believe that the word of Sin is restriction, your Ancestors, your Deads believed otherwise and are there waiting and watching.
And the study of Allan Kardec won’t hurt anyone and especially the Collection of Selected Prayers is useful.
Lately, Freddie Guevara wrote a good book on Espiritismo, take a look.
And remember, You are not alone, God watches even through the eyes of those that loosing their eye lids with Death, had their consciousness changed by the Light of the Eternal Orient, and their skulls and dusts are the strength and glory that made us.
It is your responsability to take care of your Ancestors especially living a meaningful existence.
