Surrender the "me and God" idea of the body/mind. Only God Is fully capable of Living you, the whole body/mind. God Is Fully Capable of Being you in the absence of you. The idea of a bodily conscious absence of 'me'/ you is not a negative relationship of the body/mind with life and God. Instead, the idea of an absence of you in the relationship of the body/mind and God is a positive, self sacrificed, self surrendered based relationship of the body/mind with God (Truth - Everlasting Life) that is founded and grounded for the individual through Perfect Faith in God's Divine Will, which Is God dependent, God attached, Solely God's, and God revealed (moment to moment).
The spiritual ego is a feeble attempt of the body/mind to worship God objectively through honoring itself in that worship. In other words, the spiritual ego claims a piece of God's eternal life for itself, and through that 'spark' of God that it (ego) 'contains' the spiritual ego assumes it also lives forever through a relationship with God, which is sourced in this 'spark' of God it (ego self - soul) contains. Consequently, this has been at the root of what has bee passed down for thousands of years through the creation and sustaining propaganda of the spiritual ego's (various) religions.
The ego (sin based - separate from God) state of life creates religion to protect itself forever. True religion and spirituality find the separate 'me' (other than God identity) to be the (only) darkness of the body/mind. God Is whole, complete and Freely As IT Is Forever, and IT IS Always more Present and more In-tune with nature, and more Present and In-tune with the nature of (Universal) Self than any personal idea one has of who they Are.
The ego is an attempt of the body/mind to live in the past or future, but never in the present. Ego is always a process of becoming, but never being (Now), and never actualized (in the Presence of The~Now). The ego (separate - other than God - me) is never Fully capable of living you, it is only capable of living fragments, partial, sometimes, not always in control, and only through bits and pieces. The ego creates a relationship with God that fills in the gaps, and which it pretends to surrender the individual will for God's Will when the ego (sinner 'self') is lost and blind.
The spiritual ego must give up and/or sacrifice its own (personal idea of free) will for the Divine Will. This is how the body/mind is Always confused (even if it is ever so slightly and/or subtly) between personal self and God, between self fulfilling will and God Fulfilling Will. The independent identity born from the egoic (sin based) state of the body/mind is never whole bodily Aware (in every moment), the sinner 'me' is never Aware of anything beyond its current obsession, and it (sinner self) uses the body/mind to get what it wants, it uses the body/mind to preserve and protect these desires, and it uses religion to extend these desires for eternity.
The Real and True 'I Am' is always; It was there before the things of the past where happening, It remained as those things changed into the things happening right now, and It will be there in/before the future to greet the things of the future. The 'I Am' Is where we find our True self, and All the things that come and go should be embraced, loved, shown compassion, and offered God's blessings of Transformation and Transfiguration, God's word (Teachings) and peace, which is simply a call to return to our Home. The 'I Am' Is our Home, It Is the foundation of All Spiritual initiation, growth and maturity; IT Is Present before the body/mind began to fathom Spirituality, and It Is already Being (Existing) before the next moment dawns. May the Blessing Presence of "I Am" Consume the body/mind for Its Very Own Self, and may the "I Am" Live you Freely, Fully, and Absolutely Now and forever.
