Q: In the New Age, people often appreciate enlightenment or awakening. I notice you sometimes deny such phenomenon. What do you think about it, MARTH?
Nothingness, awakening, and enlightenment are not that the ego becomes something special. That means you will return to the true essence, to the ocean of elementary particles. It is not something the ego becomes special. If the ego disappears, in other words, if you lose the ego, you will find there is no self. You will return to the original true essence when you end the ego.
The true essence in everyone is love. It is because the ocean of elementary particle is the one made of the same substances of oneness. It also means that everything in the entire universe is made of some material like a dream of God, of love, and that we are only a part of it. Therefore, however hard you boost the ego or protect it, everybody will be a part of the universe and just a public servant of love. Everybody and everything will be only a public servant of love in the entire universe. The ego neither becomes something, nor enlighten, nor awaken. It is nothing but that you will return to your true home of love, to the true essence only when you lose the ego, not so, when you realize there is no ego.
True sages have tried to convey this with such words as the end of the ego, No Mind, there is no self, and so on from the old times. MARTH
