what we feel as individual life is the flick of a flame in an immense conflagration. the flame is born in the conflagration and vanishes into the conflagration and in its passing lights up all the flames that are yet to come. only when we know the immensity of the conflagration we know the individual flame, its footing in eternity and its immortality. the flame now harmonises the light of that which had passed on behind and that which hence shall shine forth.


"She desires the ancient mornings and fulfils their light; projecting forwards her illumination she enters into communion with the rest that are to come."

Kutsa Angisara--Rig Veda.

Isn’t it our primary purpose to constantly raise our level of consciousness?

i guess we cannot be satisfied with where we are. we cannot stop here!
(is it becoming scary?)

We are all sparks of the same fire.
But that realisation comes only when the psychological 'me' goes, which is very difficult. Society ensures the continuation of the me with praise, condemnation, promotion of ambition, competition, greed, hate and what not. The wants are being increasingly projected as needs and as we don't want to be left out we too chase after the goods. The chase never ends.

i am experimenting whether the chase can end. this is a wobbling stage, but i have confidence things will steady.
at a certain stage in the evolution of the individual, we will start realising the qualitiative deterioration our life had undergone when dragged into the struggle. as you said, they play on the ego through devious ways to keep the show going. once we realise the damage it had done to us, there is hope of retrival. from the stage of mere hope i have reached the stage of confidence.
