Do you agree with that the Germans did wrong when they fanatically supported Hitler?

Do you agree with that all those who hunted witches in the seventeenth century were deluded?

Do you agree with that those who followed Jim Jones to Guyana to build Jonestown must have been out of their minds?

Do you agree with that millions and millions of people all over the world belong to all kinds of fanatic religious or political sects or groups led by insane leaders, preachers, mullahs or gurus?

Do you agree with that human beings easily can be fooled to do terrible things?

Do you agree with that human beings are easily led and gullible and that it seems to be in our nature?

Have you ever experienced in your life that you have been fooled or that you somehow have managed to fool yourself?

Have you ever lied or told a cock-and-bull story?

Have you ever had a crazy idea which you later realized was completely crazy?

Have you ever played the fool?

Do you agree with, that you right now, very well could be completely fooled or governed by an idea that later will turn out to be a completely crazy?

No, i don't agree with the last statement. I know that the collective ego is mad, insane, etc. And I know that there is an "evolutionary impulse" (as Eckhart Tolle calls it) to drop the ego. Or rather, it "drops You". Because, in a sense, the ego is a mind construct like all thoughts. Except for the thoughts that "arise" or "just come".

There is a greater intelligence that comes out of the heart center. (Or rather the only True Intelligence) Once this intelligence or knowing overrides the ego, the ego loses all its "strength" and power over You. (which is Truly a weakness)
You can no longer be fooled by anything or anyone. You know that any actions that "seem" to be against you are always illusory. And the "others" (there really are no others) "know not what they do"

We have all done these things in form. But it is not our True Nature to do them.
