Imprisoned by Ego

imprisoned_ego

For so long now the soul has been imprisoned within the personality of ego.

Do I recognise that personality?

It is that personality that stands up and defends me even when I am wrong. It is there to always make me look good in front of others – it will never let the side down!
When mistakes are noticed, it will make excuses for me and make sure there is someone else to blame. It makes sure I win even at the cost of so many others losing.

Do I recognise this so-called faithful friend within? Could I ever have considered that ego has imprisoned me and made me its slave?

This is the time to recognise how false the personality that ego promotes is, how far from the real me within.

If I am ever to reach my truth and thus my inner peace, I need to be able to let go of all that is false. I need to be able to let go of the support I take from ego and stand up and face myself, who I am, as I am.

Do I have the courage to let go of the support of Ego?

 

Om Shanti

Guilty!

 

guiltyWe often see or hear things that colour our vision of and beliefs about people.

Even if we are unaware of the circumstances, instead of seeing them as ‘innocent until proven guilty’ we automatically feel they must be guilty because our thoughts, feelings, word and actions are influenced by a belief already imprinted in our subconscious. So the way we see, hear or think about someone is coloured by that impression.

Whether they are guilty or not will make no real difference to me as a person. However this habit of holding on to negative impressions about people makes us the ones who support and empower those negative traits within our own personality. If I dislike someone then I am the one that experiences the negative feelings of ‘dislike’ within myself. We become the ones that experience the negative emotions and feelings that they generate.

So who is ‘guilty’ and who is paying the price?

 

Om Shanti
