When I have a fear or a worry or a recurring negative state that my intellect cannot process to my satisfaction, I "reach out" with my intent. I use my intent to push the negative state out of my mind, away from my intellect and being. I focus the intensity of my intent and let the state go with the full expectation that when it reenters my mind it will be solved or easier to solve. This method works like magic. I can't believe I've lived a good portion of my life without this understanding. Ultimately, living in fear and ego instead of love and harmony is a choice. It's all about your intent.
My experience and understanding is that fear and ego cannot be pushed or sent away with intent alone. Having an intent to grow is a good thing no doubt. However, fear and ego do not vanish in an instant because we choose for them to go away (not that I know of anyway). Consider a 7 year old standing up in a room and saying, "from now on, I choose to be and adult!". He may do very well at carrying out his actions like an adult. People might even take note of his high level of maturity. At the core though he is still a 7 year old. At some point he will realize that all of the experiences that occur before adulthood are the key ingredient to becoming an adult.
Maybe a bad analogy, but the point is that direct experience is key. So the point of the "game" is not necessarily to just be
evolved, but to experience the process of evolution - of growth toward love. We are already as "advanced" as AUM - we are AUM. We are here (as a piece of AUM) for the novel experience of trying to grow up within a unique set of limitations and rules. That is the point and the way in which AUM (we, all-that-is...) continues to evolve.
Having said that, we can get tastes what it is to be AUM - free of our current limitations, fears, and ego. It would be unique and perhaps beneficial to experience the process of being able to push away fear. So I would say that it is certainly possible, but unique.
As Tom has said, "There is no free lunch".
Just my thoughts.
