How to dissolve your ego and increase your spirituality

At the following lines is given the essence of spirituality in a very practical and comprehensive way. ‘hat is the narrow gate that our Lord Jesus Christ has opened for us, in order to make this possible to everyone that follows His steps. That was one of many reasons that He came and sacrificed Himself. This path has been followed in Earth`s history by people from ancient times since today. Those who have walked this path left us some traces that we can follow and speed up our journey as much as possible. The difference between the others and Lord is that they were guided by heaven and were just people or angels that came to help and not God Himself. Bottom line is that we have to dissolve the darkness inside us in order God`s light to get inside us. Let us not be deluded with thinking like 'I am good - I havenít hurt anyone'. When someone is controlled by his or hers ego, becomes more or less evil or demonic person.

Let's look at the video how a typical mind of a person who haven't dissolved his egos is in complete confusion with every ego talking through him as useless thoughts and the result in his life. He lost happiness and joy. This how we are all more or less.

The reason that we have so many useless thoughts is that within us live thousands of psychological "demons" that unfortunately is what our self is mainly consisted of. Ego is something real and alive. Soul is limited to a small part of our body. Since we are totally identified with these, we can not easily perceive them and they manipulate us and steal our energy. This is how we are lead towards to negative situations, emotions and misery. Thus, the reason causing our soul to suffer is our ego and not other people. Surely not God. These "demons" communicate with others people ďdemonsĒ telepathically and also with dark entities that exist at other dimensions. We should be careful and not let ourselves be identified with external stimulus that comes to our senses. Over time we will be able to observe the mechanism of these psychological demons that brings us all these useless thoughts. By analyzing each thought we can understand which one of them is causing it. Then we will need Divine help because we do not have the strength to dissolve them by ourselves. So we ask Christ or Holy Mary or our higher self to do it. This cannot not happen within one day. We must constantly observe ourselves and every thought or negative emotion that we observe, must be analyzed in order to see which one of our egos is causing it and then ask for its dissolution. If e.g. dissolution of lust is what we seek we could ask by the following way:

Christ disintegrate my passion of lust

This small prayer should be done by increasing the number of repetitions gradually. We can start from 50 dissolutions every day and after a long time we will be able to reach a number of a few thousands. It is certain that you will see a small or big change in yourself. We should target one at a time. We can choose one of our seven main passions described below or from the secondary ones that are mentioned in this page. By this method we can get rid of any bad habit such as smoking, drinking, drugs etc.

We can also dissolve every passion, defect or habit that we have by the repetition of this simple prayer. We could start doing this for about 20 minutes per defect and increase time gradually. We should not change our target too soon.

Jesus Christ have mercy on me..

Spiritual life is like school and its classes. We could start by saying a few times a day: thank God. This will connect us with Him. In order to experience to a small degree what Holy Spirit is we have to participate at the mysteries of our church and pray. Next stage in spiritual life is when our prayer is targeting and destroying each one of our defects. After much effort and pain Holy spirit will enter and stay permanently in us and give us true wisdom. There are other spiritual classes, but heavenly orders will guide us when we are ready for them so we do not need to worry about this. …f this or the analysis of term Angel does not sound familiar to you, at least stay close to church mysteries and keep away from lust and other passions.

This kind of spiritual transformation reminds us that of a butterfly. At the beginning this beautiful insect begins as a repulsive caterpillar. When its cellular structure begins to change, it resists with all its strength. Then it is slowly surrendering to this process which will later make it one of the most beautiful creatures of nature. Maybe the happiest. A person who is on the spiritual path feels like a butterfly. At the beginning our flaws (our habits) and the dark side, do not want us to change and we are being attacked by them in order to stop. Later, as our defects lose their power, we become masters of ourselves and we want this journey to be completed as fast as possible so that we are happy and free. If we have not changed our habits or do not feel anything after a period of work, we will have to revise our efforts in order to correct what we were doing wrong. Furthermore we should ask for guidance from above to show us what we are not doing properly.

Analysis of seven major defects-sins-passions

Lust: Tendency towards pleasures of the flesh. synonym: carnality, debauchery, lechery. The root and mother of all defects-passions. It can lead us to the abyss easily. It has caused the fall of many celestial entities which came to help this planet. She manifests herself through many ways in order to consume our energies and most of the times we donít understand it. Its energy is sticky and disgusting. During lovemaking it makes us throw away the miracle 'Aloe' that adults carry within us. God does not make anything by chance. This is the reason why this substance smells so bad and is so repulsive, when we let this happen. When lovemaking is done properly, our body remains healthy and strong. Compare this with the average short-lived degenarated man of today. When this energy accumulates in large quantities in someoneís body can lead him or her to perversions or degenerate situations. Demons are particularly fond of this energy. Misery and diseases on planet Earth are due to a great degree to punishment by Divine Justice for our sins made by lust. During intercourse with the opposite sex we should not give lust our energy, because she is never satisfied. It leads us easily to adultery. When she is dissolved and replaced by God`s love, our souls fills with hapiness.

Attention - For women !!

Pride: A moral attitude that derives from faith and love in ourselves or in something related to us and expressed as dignity and generosity or when it is excessive as a feeling of superiority. synonym: complacency, gloating, self-adoration, pretentious, arrogant. antonym: humility, modesty. Pride has also caused the falling of many celestial entities. It is a great illness that demons love. It moves us away from God. When one relies only on his powers, he is prideful and does not follow what our Lord has taught us. That is: without Him we can`t do anything. The texture of this energy is like cement that we have to brake from our self if we want to move forward in our spiritual path. God`s Hierarchies dislike pride, nevertheless they are helping us if they are allowed to do so by God`s law and they do not abandon us. Because of our pride we judge everyone and everything as if we were God Himself and we overlook our own spiritual mess. Because of pride there are on this planet quarrels, crimes and wars. We must disintegrate pride if we want happiness in our lives. 

Anger: mental state of intense irritation. This defect, not only it takes away from us too much energy (let us remember the state of emptiness that a quarrel leaves us) but it also leads us to acts we would have never done under normal circumstances. If anger is not treated in time, it can become hatred as time passes by. Soul becomes dark and is eventually lost. Souls need love and nothing else.

Envy: bitterness that someone feels for the superiority or happiness of others for something. Synonym: jealousy. A very negative energy by which we can harm our fellow man remotely who may feel like he is been shot with negative emotions. Particularly harmful, it is like doing black magic to someone, even if we don`t understand it. 

Greed: the state in which someone is not being able to be satisfied with what he or she already has or what it is necessary for him or her. opposite: generosity, selflessness. It especially characterizes us who live in Western type societies and cannot be satisfied with what we possess. Greed is not limited to material things only. It will never force us of course to do more prayer or spiritual work.

Gluttony: to eat greedy. antonym: oligophage. Synonymous with greed, not limited to food.

Laziness: avoiding any work we have to do. Although it seems innocent, it could be dangerous. If someone wants to pray, but cannot start and postpones it constantly, there is laziness inside him or her. It is necessary for these persons to start from this defect and work upon it for some time. Then they will be able to move on with the rest.

A soul cannot realize beauty if it is not beautiful itself - Plotinus
