TAKING A BREAK FROM THE EGO
Have you checked your ego self out lately? Do you ever take a moment to see if the ego is raging out of control? Or maybe a moment to just realize the ego is in total charge of everything you do? From my personal experiences I have found it very beneficial for me to take a close look at that "ego self" which I oft times confuse it with my true being. As humans we need the ego self at times I'm sure. But when it rules all our waking thoughts it can cause us much pain and sorrow. I share with you a quote from the Carlos Castaneda book The Wheel of Time which is a work about the Shamans of ancient Mexico and their views on life, death, and the universe. On page 16 of this book it states: Dwelling upon the self too much produces a terrible fatigue. A man in that position is deaf and blind to everything else. The fatigue itself makes him cease to see the marvels all around him. I find that to be very true myself. May I be bold and suggest that you check in with that ego you and see if you can take a quick respite from it and learn to be more attuned to the fact that all things are One. Be wary of all egos, and especially those of others who know no other way except through their ego. I wish you good luck in discovering and overcoming all the ills of the ego mind. And as you grow in wisdom please remember to take a moment and do a kind deed for someone and while you are at it a good deed for yourself as well!
