Friends, Mortals, Global Citizens, Lend Me Your Ears. The Ego is No More!

Friends, Mortals, Global Citizens, lend me your ears;
I come to bury the Ego, not to praise him.
The evil that men do rises through the Ego;
The good is oft interred with their Soul;
So let it be with Ego. The noble Soul
Hath told you Ego was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And conscientiously must Ego answer it.
Here, under the guidance of the Soul
For Your Inner Self is an honorable being;
So are all souls, all honorable beings –
Come I to speak in Ego’s funeral.
He was my friend, faithful yet devious to me:
But my Soul says he was ambitious;
And the Soul is an honorable being.
Ego hath brought many weaknesses to Humanity
Whose ransoms did all of universal beings fill:
Did this in Ego seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, the Rich Ego hath rejoiced:
Ambition should be made of Selfless stuff:
Yes the Ego was ambitious;
And the Soul is honorable.
You all did reflect yourself in the mirror
Presenting the Ego a kingly crown,
Which he never did refuse but only ask for more: was this ambition?
The Soul says he was ambitious;
And, sure, the Soul is honorable.
I speak to lend a voice to the Soul,
And here I am to speak what I do know.
You all love your Ego, with various cause:
What cause withholds you then, to rise from it all?
O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And Souls have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is with the Soul rejoicing at the defeat of Ego,
And I must never cease, for Ego is no more!
– from Julius Caesar, spoken by Marc Antony, paraphrased by Aditya
When the Soul buries the Ego, One is Enlightened


Carpe Diem!
