The Devil Inside You - Transcending the Net of Thought


The devil is inside you. It is a thought, an illusory net, trying to pull you in and keep you caught in a mental loop of discontinuity with the present moment. Listen, watch it, see how it works within the idea of you, creating "you", and set it free. Right now, in this very moment, you have the opportunity to transcend this psychological bind you have put yourself in and have a radical revolution of the psyche. This is the destiny of all human beings on this planet: To transcend the individual ego and merge with the Whole.


"And what is yourself, the individual you? I think there is a difference between the human being and the individual. The individual is a local entity, living in a particular country, belonging to a particular culture, particular society, particular religion. The human being is not a local entity. He is everywhere. If the individual merely acts in a partiuclar corner of the vast field of life, then his action is totally unrelated to the whole. So one has to bear in mind that we are talking of the whole not the part, because in the greater the lesser is, but in the lesser the greater is not."

Jiddu Krishnamurti 

Language gives us the ability to communicate with one another, to share and collaborate for a better world. However, if the universe is seen only through the confined filter of the your internal dialog, a language that was given to you by external sources, it creates a fragmented world of illusion. 

We are all bound by our thoughts; hidden in a mask of fear from our true selves. The world you see out there is just as much a part of you as your lungs and yet we treat it as if it some foreign commodity we can exploit. Trapped in the net of thought, we have become aliens to ourselves and the world around us (although the two are one process). 

Liberation of the mind is the next evolutionary step of mankind. From the part to the whole. The real you does not live in one particular spot. Like space itself, there is no center. The real you is everywhere. All you have to do is re-member.
