[Self-improvement - continued]
The positive way to define your ego is to be one with the cause of it: love it the way it is, then freely choose whatever behavior feels good to you. You won't blow away; you can experience your present structure as a space-level interaction, and then go higher only if you want to.
Changing your vibration level, raising your love level, is the only action that results in a real change for the better. Group encounters, sexual freedom, revolution, yoga, diets, asceticism, rock music, dope, all means are dependent on your interest and creative power to be effective. These are all good games, but don't try to force yourself past the time when you are really interested. They work only while your attention to them is aroused. And when they work too well, too successfully, you are likely to "lose interest." When you feel your structure turning into energy and then space, you are likely to pull back, unless you accept what is happening and stabilize at a new level.
There really are more loving games than improving yourself or reforming other people, or otherwise using negative tension to harden your structure.
Keep in mind that your survival does not depend on any structure. You are a unity, an entity just like all the others in the universe. When you ain't got nothing you got nothin' to lose.
There isn't anything "wrong" with using negative events to define your ego, as long as you do it consciously, because you want to. The only wrongness in any activity is being withdrawn from awareness of what you are doing. We can play these same silly games with a lot more pleasure when we are aware of what we are really doing.
When you offer people spiritual solutions óor solutions of any kind for anything, for that matteró you are asking them to give up what makes them feel active, alive, defined ó their ego structure. Be careful, it's dangerous!
Well, just for starters, take it that every human being is a perfect whatever-it-is right now. Every state of consciousness is perfect and complete, and does not need to be changed. And every change of consciousness is perfect and complete, and does not need to be static.
I have tried to cover all the possibilities at once with a couple of maxims:
Whether I am conscious of it or not, I am one with the cause of all that exists.
Whether I feel it or not, I am one with all the love in the universe.
