In this video teaching, Shunyamurti begins by asking what is the ego's main fear and explains that it is the fear of being overwhelmed. But how and why does that fear get instilled in us and how to overcome it to live a life of ultimate freedom and fulfillment?
"It is very hard to stay in denial anymore, and remain in the ego. To do that, you have to crush your intelligence. That’s why we’ve created a very dumbed down culture. Because people who are too intelligent will know that the game is not worth playing."
"So there’s all of these pressures that are pushing you out there, toward the demonic game that you don’t want to play and you know you can’t play. "
"But, you’re unwilling to play the other game, of Real Love and Real Knowledge, because that means annihilation into the Absolute."
