At First Sight
Like the infant using a past experience might turn into that small child stomping their feet demanding their parents to give them what they want.
With the ego saying “yes I need help here, how dare you not give me what I need’. ‘I can’t do this on my own” and the parent’s ego agrees, “yes I should do everything for this child, This child is my child, different from, your child”. And the ego is pasted down like a bad gene.
We start to compare our parenting skills to our own parents; ” My parents didn’t ever help me, I had it tough, if my parents had stayed together, if my parents loved me.”, And your ego tells you yes’,” I’m a better parent then my parents were”. Most of us were un- taught to be present held captive by our parents, brain washed and given an ego. and some may never get back to presence, until they are close to death. They say that most kids by age 8 have already developed the ego,and lost their awareness of the now, they no longer look at the world the same; they may start to judge, and label. They start to develop their stories; “I shouldn’t be treated like this, she’s is ugly, I am ugly, I need, I don’t have, I want, they don’t like me, I am this way because…. , I have a right!… I have an illness, my parents are divorced, it’s my teachers fault, I am better then you”.
We came in this world with presences and will leave with presences.
Imagine seeing life with such presence, it’s like seeing everything for the first time but with, the practical knowledge needed to faction. Being focused makes people feel alive; it brings them peace, everything starts to align in their life. It’s almost magic. We suddenly know what to do, where to go, and life start to line up for you. Without focus without being conscious, we never fully become ourselves. The Bible says an eye for an eye, what you put out, you get back, negative energy out, negative results back. Thinking is energy. positive thinking leads to positive results, but above thinking is a place where awareness lives , it’s like an open socket, that’s who we are, a place where the false self/ ego cannot survive. This is the place where we find peace and comfort. this place is presence. This place we are born with but may lose sight of .
