Ego vs spiritual approach

QUESTION: Masters, I have realized that any fear related thoughts are ego based and human beings are brought up in a way that if we do not take life seriously we will be stuck behind in the race. My question is if every moment we do/say whatever we feel like doing/saying, just following our first intuition without having any doubt about it going wrong is this a spiritual approach to a situation? ~Sheen, India

ANSWER: What you are justifying in the action of society is the belief system that ego judgment is necessary to be a part of society. Planet Earth is a duality, so there is an equal amount of positive and negative energy drifting around.

Society is controlled by the ego mind, which takes every action of man and rates, grades, and judges it against some imaginary standard. If you meet the mark of the judge, then you are accepted as a contributing member of society; otherwise you are selfish, uneducated, and uncaring as far as they are concerned because you do not conform to their thinking.

Souls come to the duality so that they may work through the life lessons they chose to experience. These tests come in the form of a negative problem, and the solution is to understand the negativity and choose to take the positive course, which takes you out of the negativity.

When complying with the desires of societal ego control, one must be predictable and “follow the party line” in all actions undertaken. If people think for themselves, such as by following their intuition, they are no longer predictable and therefore a threat to the control of the ego.

The awareness of your essence as a soul, and the completion of your life lessons, comes with a shifting from being one of the flock of lemmings following the demands of others to doing only what feels right to you. In order to enter into unconditional love, the spiritual path, one must be concerned only with what is resonating within one’s own body. You no longer worry about what others will think.

One is only able to completely utilize their intuition and totally follow their feelings when they have finished all their lessons. Until then, they need the negativity and judgment in order to go through their process of learning.
