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, Ego is usually viewed as a person who seems vain or braggadocios and always ‘showing off’ as in that guy has a big ego. This description of Ego is hungry for power, money, fame, and lust to name a few. These are all lower vibrational frequencies.
This is not the full story though. Simply put, Ego arises when we live in fear. 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 in the opposite way. When we hear people say “no one loves me” or “poor me” that is also the ego coming out to play.
Anytime the victim mentality is hard at work you can be sure the ego is involved
In truth, often the ego does feel 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 of ourselves to make us feel good or to achieve happiness or success.
I am here to tell you that simply by waking up today you did enough.
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 in order 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.
