Ego + ego = YOU

Good morning, my Sister/Brother Friend. I just read something that brought me mindful to:oie_9nB5RCNdxKQQ

In connecting with a King’s consciousness…in all our getting, let’s get wisdom and understanding. With that, let’s keep in mind that when we goal set and/or intention see, we want to refrain from micromanaging those steps in getting to the destination; and keep in heart to trust our LIght within.

This brings me to reflect on my readings about the ego. In many self-help, self-development books, it’s so often stated that the ego is an illusion, it is something that, for lack of a better word, should not be trusted. In my Metaphysical studies, the ego is often referred to as that which keeps us separated from each other and The Creator. In fact, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer described ego as “edging God out” of our lives.

For years, I’ve prayed, contemplated, meditated over this, “ego” thing, asking for wisdom and an understanding. Today, my understanding is that we indeed have an ego within an Ego. We have a mindful persona, an ego that responds and is influenced (if we so choose) by what we see, feel, do, touch, smell, hear on the outside, which affects us on the inside; the ego, that beautiful glove we don and dress. It is this ego why we have the need to read the self-help/improvement books, why we experience sabotage behavior, delight in the physical pleasures, typically define love either as romantic (Eros) or familial (Philia), when in fact there are at least 6 if not more dimensions of Love. Our mindful persona ego is the one that perceives and percepts (wonder if I just made up a word 😉 ) on a very personal level, which can alter our physical, mental, emotional, physiological states of being. Don Miguel Ruiz in “The Four Agreements” says that in order to arrive at a personal freedom one of the agreements to ourselves is that we “not take things personally”. This says to me that in our mindful persona ego, we may arrive at that state of Personal Freedom…freedom to love, care, share…BE.

You know, I recently read and so agree that we do not describe what we see, we see what we describe. Okay, like…remember when the movie Batman came out several years ago? Billboards overlooking the highways posted the image of the black bat. For a long time, I saw Mickey Mouse ears (for the life of me, I did {could} not see that it was a bat…hahahahahaha). My personal perception. At one point, a friend took some time with me and actually walked me through the outline of that image before I saw the bat. You know, it took me a minute to see the intention of the image. That was really deep! Can you think of a time when that happened with you? Once I saw the bat, it was actually difficult for me re-see the ears. Unsure why I wanted to see the ears again 🙂. Now, I guess, unknowingly, I wanted to see two images in one 🙂  Before we actually describe what we see, we’ve made up our mind about what it is. Perception…How do you see You, your world and all in it?

Our ego, in the frailty, we are Beautiful.

What nurtures our ego is our heartfilled Ego…I call this one “Expressing God’s Opulence”. It’s the one that is the source of all of our prosperity, companionship to loneliness, the answer to our questions, the one needing not to ingest the content of self help/improvement material. It is the help and way to improvement…it is the I Am within each and every one of us. It is that sparkle that twinkles from our eyes. It’s that deep down, gentle feeling you get that brings joy from your very soul when you’ve been touched beyond what any words can describe. It is that transcendence when making Love, as two souls join together as one. It is our image of The Creator – Love. It is our In-tuition (Inner Teacher), it is how we are one connected with the One.

Our Ego, in all splendor, we are Magnificent.

In connecting with a King’s consciousness…in all our getting, let’s get wisdom and understanding. With that, let’s keep in mind when we goal set or intention see, let’s not micromanage those steps in getting to the destination; and keep in heart to trust our LIght within.

The Ego and ego…what a perfect marriage 🙂

The Divine in me sees the Divine in You, in…lifelightlove*anita
