The Ego

It is present in your lives. Silently encouraging you to act in a certain fashion. 

‘More for me, less for you, there is not enough so I must do this.’ 

‘You have more than I do, so this must be done to even things out.’

So much energy is put into comparing the haves with the have-nots, the race for achieving; the competition among men here upon this plane.

 What if you were to realize that the Ego is meaningless and carries no weight in reality?  What if you were to step back and see yourselves, as we do? Scurrying around, wanting more, giving less.   It is a puzzle to us, how you see the world.  The truth is that there is abundance for everyone. Why all this scurrying?  What is the purpose of this?

 Let us help you to dissolve this Ego. Slowly. For you have become accustomed to its presence in your lives.  It feeds on fear…fear of lack, fear of being left behind, fear of being unloved.  And it will do anything to achieve these things.  When in reality, they are already yours.  Revenge, jealousy, competition, doubt, fear are all Ego fed.  Can you stop for just a moment and review your day, your motives, and see how Ego has come to play within your lives?  Compassion, love, generosity, forgiveness are not in its vocabulary.   The more you embrace those actions in your life, the less power Ego will have in it. 

 Ego lives in the mind, not in the heart.  Bless it on its way as it leaves your life.  Gently, but firmly.  This will happen not in a moment, but over time. For you are so accustomed to Ego’s presence in your lives. But it is possible.  And the first step is to recognize its presence.  To see how it guides your actions, your words, your thoughts.  It has been a constant companion for most of you for your entire lives.  But it has not been one to help you grow and open your hearts.  A wolf in sheep’s clothing, a companion you can do without, if you choose to do so.

 As you go through your day, ask yourself what is driving that thought, that word, that deed.  Is it Ego or is it love?  Again, we ask you to be gentle with yourselves.  For this has been a lifetime companion for you.  But once brought into the light, out from the shadows where it exists, Ego will begin to dissolve.  Slowly, but it WILL dissolve.  And that will leave more room for love in your lives, and all the thoughts and actions that come with it. 

 Take that first step today.  Notice. Question. And act accordingly.  Ego is a habit. Only a habit, that can be broken, if you wish.  But it begins with the realization that it does exist in your lives at present.  Open the windows, allow the light to shine in and reveal its presence in the dark corners of your mind.  And then gently sweep it out and see the colors shine brighter, the songs sound sweeter and the air smell fresher in your lives.  It is entirely possible to do.  One step at a time.

    You have a cool site. There are many influences in life which move us away from our natural state of equilibrium. There are a few influences which aid us in maintaining our basic nature of balance and peaceful perspective. Your site is the latter.

    Peace always

      What a great compliment you have given this blog. I thank you for that. I think we all knew these truths at one time. Be we’ve forgotten and need gentle reminders to get back on track. Thank you for recognizing the purpose of these writings. Namaste.
