How is it stolen? I'm just gathering books from sources I believe are enlightening and offering a download link, most of them are free to download from the sources I got them from.

If you're going to study enlightenment yourself do you just come up with your own information about it or do you get it from people who have been achieving it for thousands of years? I think the latter because most would agree the path to enlightenment has been defined already and there are things that are known to help achieve it, I'm simply making a list of them and sharing that.

Well I expect you to have that mentality about the situation because you were indoctrinated by the school system however the mindset of mankind has been in a fallen state for thousands of years so do you really think that the people that were falling new how to get to the top? All the literature we have the past thousands of years as a lot like mistletoe it looks nice from a distance but it's actually killing the tree. I don't research something unless I've experienced it personally and then I will research it to see if somebody else has experienced it as well. By regurgitating literature that somebody else has made not only does it make you not authentic but it keeps the mistletoe alive

I've experienced almost every single book and link that I've shared in the list, and saying everyone is fallen is just false. There's obviously some people who know the truth.

Hey, any advice on deactivating the ego can't be bad!

I say, don't battle with others, konrD ...say your peace and those
that like it it will help.
If it worked for you it will work for others, too, right?
We each resonate with diff things...it's what makes the world go round.
Keep your up your enthusiasm.

The ego is you it is the part of you that's what we call human without an ego you would have 0 personality.
You can't deactivate your ego you can't kill your ego you can just find a new mask to put on and play the game with . In sorry if some fake guru told you that you can kill your ego but they were talking from there ego

Killing the ego? No...undoing the ego's thought system...(the carnal or worldly thought system),
not following it,
but choosing the Holy Spirit's Thought System (or your Higher Self or godly thought system if you will...
whatever name, who cares.)
It's an issue with wordage.

Like feeding the bad wolf or the good wolf,
or listening to the devil on your shoulder or the angel.

Then, you can get into the lower ego self and the higher ego self...the whole thing is a mess of words!
So what, splitting hairs.

Liken it more as enabled to engage across a certain frequency range of vibration
Lower end of polarity causing consciousness contraction, the higher expansion
Free will determining choice of selection

What is called as the ego is stagnation in the mind-body owing to delusion
By rotating polarity we may easily connect to the Divine within in blissful elation

If we but exit delusion arising from sole identification with this mind body recognising it as a temporary vehicle for earth life navigation ...

Then from the fulcrum of clarity as unfettered and free flowing awareness
We are in but not of this world of ephemerality as an immaculate witness

Excellent way to put it.

It is funny how different we all are...one person says we are our ego...it is who we are!
I have said for decades...we are not our ego.

Oh my, if I thought people were their ego's...I would not like many people!
What do I think they are? Innocent little children, bright lights inside of them...
maybe a little muddy from the playground and confused.
