    I have heard Deepak and other sages say the “reality” we have created as humans is really an illusion of the mind. Why, then, would we create such discord and dysfunction in our present reality (as opposed to the eternal “now”)? I know that part of this is the ego mind, but if the I AM, or God, or whatever one calls the ultimate source created everything to be perfect in every moment, why create ego–or is EGO merely a human construct that veils us from seeing ultimate reality–which is US?

    This feels a little like a Zen koan–a riddle that has no answer.
