We spend a tremendous amount of time and energy maintaining the ego. The ego, as I am using it, represents the self that we are currently embodying. For instance, I am not Patrick. I am a divine eternal Spirit that is currently manifesting as Patrick. Patrick is my ego. I have no problems with Patrick, I thoroughly enjoy playing the role. But for me to feel as though Patrick is all I am would be flawed.
Being nude is taking it back to the first step. Nude is how we all come into the world. All incarnations on the entire planet start out nude. There is nothing shameful about it. It is simply the Tao; the way things are.
Nude meditation takes it all back to the first moment when you are still in direct communion with Spirit. There is no Armani suit to strengthen the self esteem. There is no shoe collection showing what a fantastic sense of fashion you have. It’s just you and Spirit. Which, essentially, is where you always are but forget in the process of putting on the facade of the ego.
