E is for Ego
“In the war of Ego, the loser always wins” -Buddha-
Ego is the mind interrupting the present moment with chatter and trickery of thought patterns.
In the western world, the Ego is usually viewed as a person who seems vain or braggadocio and always ‘shows off as in that guy has a big ego. This description of Ego is hungry for power, money, fame, and lust. These are all lower vibrational frequencies.
This is not the whole story, though. Simply put, Ego arises when we live in fear. So the braggadocios person is bragging because they fear that no one will love them unless they have all sorts of accomplishments to show, like money, cars or whatever they are bragging about.
Ego can also manifest oppositely. When we hear people say “no one loves me” or “poor me, ” the Ego comes out to play.
Anytime the victim mentality is hard at work, you can be sure the Ego is involved.
In truth, the Ego often feels sorry for itself (or it gets you to feel sorry for it). The Ego is what remains when we are not living in love and light.
Wayne Dyer uses EGO as an Acronym for Edge God Out.
Ego is the voice in your head telling you that you need to do something to feel a certain way. It tells us that we need something outside ourselves to make us feel good or achieve happiness or success.
I am here to tell you that you did enough by waking up today.
The Ego is and always will be fighting our soul for attention. It’s as if the Ego is the little devil on your shoulder and the soul is that angel on the opposite shoulder, and they are both trying to get you to go with them.
Ego will tell us anything to get us to do what it wants.
When we decide to let God in, instead of Edge God Out, then we quiet the Ego and return to the soul of Love and Light, which is our natural state.
