from translation to transformation

Ego does nothing but translate and interpret reality.
Religion has always served two purposes. One is transformation, the other one is translation. Transformation requires that you stand in life without any filter, without any belief but live directly. This has only worked for very few throughout the ages. In this way religion helps you to undo all the old beliefs and you can once again experience reality directly. Ego can not experience directly, It can only translate what it perceives to be real. So for the masses religion has served this purpose. It has helped the ego to translate reality. To explain it in a way that the mind can live with it. Satsang in a way also brings you a translation but this translation is meant to transform you. Direct transformation is not so easy for the mind. Silence cuts any identification immediately. The words of satsang are meant to be a bridge from translation to transformation.
