Beyond the Spiritual Ego

In my experience the Evolution of Consciousness Course with Pete has enabled me to recognize more clearly the aspects of my personality that have hindered growth and evolution as an Aware Human Being! Mainly the Spiritual Ego ( that I have been feeding for some time!) and a constant posture of control, but also some typical conditioning characteristic of Portuguese culture and tradition.

Today however, I know I always have a choice, whatever the circumstances, and that my growth and evolution depend mainly on the intensity and clarity of my intention! Although I know I can find teachings of enlightenment transmitted in books, I recognize that it is much easier to integrate them (although it is also much more challenging), and to really start living and expressing them, when we are in communion with others who want the same for themselves!

It's been fantastic to meet other people dedicated to this path of Conscious Evolution. Sharing what happens in each session allows us all to recognize the universality and impersonality of our egos! Upon hearing the fears, problems, challenges and aspirations of others in the group, I easily understand that they are not so different from "my" fears, "my" problems, the "my" challenges and "my" aspirations ... And if there remains any doubt that there is only One Consciousness that Unites Us All, then the strength and intention of meditation we practice in each session, is also enough to show us, from our own experience, that we really are all ONE!
