The false self [ego] doesn’t ‘want’ something called ‘you’ to ‘do’ anything … it ‘is’ this one you call ‘you’ or ‘me’. There are NOT two entities – something called ‘you’ … with an ego [false self]. The body-mind-identity ‘IS’ the false self … and, as the term suggests – it/you does NOT exist. Nevertheless, the 5 senses ‘seem’ to confirm that it/you does exist, and this is called bondage … the imprisonment of the Real SELF within the illusion of the false self dream.
This false self [or ego (a far more complicated name for the same thing)] believes it can ‘have’ and ‘do’ things and activities … and the list of these is very long. But this false self ‘has’ nothing and ‘does’ nothing – ‘except’ insofar as it is within the Grand Dream ‘as’ dreams. The ONE SELF YOU Really Are, does the ‘doing’ … that is, IT is the animator ‘of’ the Grand Dream as well as the origin ‘of’ the false self.
IT required an ‘avatar’ with which to navigate the dream IT manifested to ‘know’ IT SELF. What occurred at first was IT allowed IT SELF to ‘believe’ each avatar [including everything that makes up the universe] – was real … ITs identity(ies). That is the state of Conscious Awareness of most of humanity at the moment. That is the prison most call reality.
