The final outcome of every ego plan leads to death. We know this must be true because the only certain outcome the ego sees to life, is death. Death serves the purpose of sin and separation. The body is the means the ego uses to carry out its plan and is the “beneficiary” of its outcome. There is an alternative Plan that welcomes life, not death, but our mind must be open to trusting that it is the plan that will bring us what we really want. Hopefully, remembering the effects of our ego plans will be enough to teach us there must be a better way.
