This obsession with retaining their ego amuses me. The whole point of entering the realm of ‘the father’ is to lose all attachments to what you consider most precious – your ego. the go is a flase creation. Losing it is what is required to enter heaven. If you think you eratin your curent sense of self in the higher spiritual realm, you are sadly msitaken. In fact, it is IMPOSSIBLE to enter heaven while dragging your big stupid ego along. Don’t you get it? Jeus didn’t promise eternal life to your ego, but to the far greater reality of the soul – its essence having made the choice to separate from God led to the creation of the ego in the first place. Does anyone out there understand this?
