IS YOUR EGO FULL OF ITSELF?
What happens to us when we take on too many different roles? I mean, one thing at a time with full focus, we really are capable of anything we choose to do or be. But what happens when we take on too much at once? Worse yet, what happens if we take on too much at once and start identifying with all of these roles and scripts as our True Self? And what happens when these individual worlds collide and we aren’t able to find the common discovery between all of them, yet put ourselves into a box where we have to do just this?
I am not entirely sure why this happens, but I have my speculations. From my own experience, I do understand that the path beyond it is through authenticity. If you are authentic, you will always have a commonality to naturally merge with, within the context of anything you are doing. If you create this reality for yourself, you can always just be YOU. If you are at a point where you want to learn more about becoming your Authentic Self, please read The Journey To Your Authentic Self.
What happens when we have identified with our ego or our persona, over our Authentic Self? How exactly does something like that happen anyway? We have been taught to value the approval of others over honoring ourselves. A preposterous notion for Divinity incarnate. Yet this seems to be a norm. We are taught this in school – it is a common theme in our society. It matters what grades we get, not how we have enjoyed ourselves. It matters how we look, not that we feel good. It matters that we say the ‘right thing’, rather than speak our Truth. We have been taught that the masks we wear are more important than the Soul we share. Our own authentic expression of Self is what we came here for, yet we barely recall a fragmentary shred of Truth when navigating based upon our ego’s will. And then we come upon an old adage that cites – “The Truth Shall Set You Free“. Whoa. Now that is some scary shit, taking the rest of this paragraph into consideration! How do we re-solve this one? As with everything, with a shift in perspective.
THE EGO AND THE SOUL ARE ON THE SAME TEAM
What if we could foster harmony with the Ego and the Soul together? How could we establish this foundation to work with ease, grace and flow? This would indeed be The Ultimate Vesica Piscis!
Ego + Soul = Authentic Self
If we allowed our Soul to guide the actual direction of our journey, and our ego to make the more specific choices within each given step we take – essentially we would create and perpetuate a life of pure bliss. No hindrances. No dual beliefs to self sabotage oneself with. Everlasting flow. Our Soul guiding us through our blueprint, and our Ego choosing the flavor of our experience. A personalized co-creation bridging Heaven to Earth. Infinity upright. The number 8 in action.
So then, why did we choose to alter the duties of the Ego and the Soul? Why have we added this extra challenge to our already arduous sojourn through Time? The more pragmatic side of me says: W.I.I.F.M (What’s In It For Me)? I laugh inside a little wondering – what the hell were we thinking!? The Soul sees the big picture while the ego sees the little picture. Seems pretty straight forward. Neither big nor small matters – we always knew that size didn’t matter! It’s how much joy we take from each experience that nourishes us. Joyful alignment. And we have most joy when we are in flow with who we really are. So I ask two more questions:
1. Did your Ego really enjoy looking after the dynamics in the bigger picture?
2. Did your Soul really enjoy looking after the tedious little details?
Ok, I am sneaking a 3. in here. Do you really believe they were built for these tasks?
Neither were created to be used this way, yet instead of stopping and asking questions, we have bulldozed through endless realities to finally prove ourselves ‘right’. Yet we are only beginning to realize that it is only ‘right’, when it’s Right. First we MUST know Self and express ourselves authentically in order to be aligned, and therefore Righteous. If we aren’t doing what we came here to do – we do not Know the essence of happiness to ever be able to achieve real joy. Imagine if your liver started acting like a kidney, and your kidney started acting like your heart, and….I am not sure how long it would be possible to continue to exist under these circumstances! All of these organs, and the cells contained within them, came here for a specific purpose. If your cells begin to do something else other than the original intention, the whole system would eventually collapse on itself rather than expand into its greatest potential. You and I and the system we exist within, are no different. Take a moment to reflect on this now, and in this moment remember: As Within, So Without.
I welcome Love back into my life. Through Love we will recognize the commonality between the Ego and the Soul. Only through Love may the Authentic Self shine through…
