We set another record for downloads on the Power Prosperity Podcast last week. A big reason was the special episode I put out on Saturday. Since it got such a huge response, let’s continue the discussion here. The episode was titled 1,000 Miles from Nowhere, and in it we dealt with the age-old questions of:
Who am I?
What is the ego?
Is ego evil?
What is the thing called self?
I find it ironic that so many people know about and understand the blockchain, quasars, nuclear fusion and cloning animals – but don’t know who they are.
It seems to me that a lot of the people who face this question seek answers in the space of organized religion. Often this leads to the question of who/what is god, and how you qualify for salvation.
Too often it then leads to running from your past, seeking atonement for your past, and/or sacrificing your current life now, to get the “good” life – the one after this one. They think their current life is simply something to be endured, as they’re tested to see if they’re qualified for inclusion in the real payout: eternal life.
But what if there isn’t really a test? What if you’re meant to really live this life, the one you have right now? Longtime followers of my work know, I believe if you ask the wrong question, the answer is irrelevant. Or even harmful.
I think too many people are asking the wrong question: Is there life after death? They would be better served to ask a better question: Is there life before death?
Next post, I want to explore the other part of the podcast, the people seeking to find themselves. But in the meantime, would love to know your thoughts on what we discussed so far…
