Many people get very confused when it comes to the word ‘ego’. Why is that? Well, mostly because we have turned the ego into something that is bad. And why did we, as the lovely humans that we are, turn it into something that is frowned upon? Because we do that to most everything! So sad….. Any how, the ego is our basic earthly connection. Our beautiful souls had to connect with something once we entered our shells. And that connect is to our egos. Our egos help us to stay grounded while we are here experiencing all the delicious avenues of life! It also likes to argue and play tricks on our source energy connect. How? Well… all those things in life that you spend time judging, like yourself (The whole “I am not good enough” bit, that’s your ego.) When you judge the actions of another, that is your ego stepping up to the plate to take a swing. When you are making an internal decision that something is right or something is wrong, that’s the ‘ole ego kicking in.
The ego remembers all the past experiences and knows all the future desires and it uses all that information to keep us on our toes! While your source energy is also all-knowing, the source energy knows much more then your ego would ever admit! Your source energy knows the ‘whole’ truth, the truths that are behind closed doors. And all your true source energy knows, is LOVE! Your sly ego, also knows love, however, it really likes to have fun with you and loves to push out big helpings of self-doubt and your ego really, really enjoys taking the lead. So, one might say it is kind of like the angel and the devil on our little shoulders. But then you say, “well, the ego is ‘bad’ then, right?” Nope! the ego is needed for our earthly experiences. With out the ego we wouldn’t be able to learn and grow. We would not be able to make decisions on whether we want to experience something again or not experience something again. Our egos make life interesting and different.
We came here to experience diversity and to spiritually grow. If we only know love, which is what our internal source energy knows, how are we able to come ‘down’ in order to know that we like to come ‘up’?
What our goals here should be, is to let our source energy be the leader and the ego be the man in the back, the follower!!! And that, my friend, is what we all struggle with! So, the next time something nasty comes to the front of your mind, understand and remember…. it’s that ego of yours and ask it to take a back seat while you pull up your source energy and let it drive!! I will talk more in regards to this and the like, soon. I will also touch on distinct examples in regards to our wonderful ego and how it sometimes takes the lead and how easy it is to spiral down when it does (of course, I will continue with how to also, make it relax so that you can fulfill your grandest desires.) Until, next time…
From the heart,
