What Happens When We are Afraid to Live AND Afraid to Die?

Ego Inflation and Alienation

It’s a disturbing thought: afraid to live and afraid to die. One’s ego sees one’s little life as vulnerable, so it puffs the personality up to make it a formidable foe to the world.

But, at the same time, this causes alienation from everything outside of one’s self, and from the Self on the inside. In other words, it makes the personality feel more alone and vulnerable.

I like this illustration because it uses Greek, Hebrew, Latin and Hindu symbols. But what does it really mean? If you can decipher its meaning, you may already be more than halfway there.

So true.

“Missed the mark” means:

“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”

(Romans 3:23)

Here ends today’s lesson.
