Sounds mysterious doesn’t it?
But really not, I love the definition of EGO by Dr Wayne Dyer – “Edging God Out”, after years of research and my own life experiences, working with hundreds of people all over the world, I concluded one thing, Ego is so useless. I mean really, Ego – with all this clutter and wanting to control others, labeling, judging everything and everyone, control circumstances, wanting approval, searching for validation, wanting to be separated from everything and everyone, it’s insane.
To quote Eckardt Tolle from “New Earth”:
- “Nonreaction to the ego in others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also of dissolving the collective human ego. But you can only be in a state of nonreaction if you can recognize someone’s behavior as coming from the ego, as being an expression of the collective human dysfunction. When you realize it’s not personal, there is no longer a compulsion to react as if it were.”
- “The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist.”
I found that truly once you recognize, that you are not YOUR EGO, that this is just a collective of thinking processes, old patterns, old programming and when you become CONSCIOUS, when you WAKE UP to your true power, your can move mountains, you feel so liberated and you are really connected to what some call God, Universe, Higher Power, from that place of awareness most amazing inspirations come and you can really start acting in the way that can make a difference in your life and in the lives of others, without polluting yourself, your family, this planet with negative, destructive energy, that often exudes from ego based actions.
When you become present, aware of the fact, that you are not your thoughts, you are not your Ego, you become free, you recognize that this little voice in your head has no power over you, that past has no power over you, future is not here yet, you will understand that your power if rooted in this very moment, you will notice how worrying all of a sudden is simply useless, your mind becomes still and you can truly live a dream life.
I often observe especially on FB people posting horrible things – animals being tortured, kids being abandoned and so on, really as much I have compassion and I feel this “global anger” I chose to focus on feeling good, reacting to it creates more anger, more negativity, i acknowledge that this is something that comes as a result of egoistic, unconscious doing and I focus back on my attitude, and doing all that I can to build something that can truly allow me to react from the right space when the time comes. It’s not about being indifferent, but it’s about making smart choices. Look what happens to those who shout AGAINST THIS OR THAT, AGAINST WAR, AGAINST POVERTY, what happens? Do you see it reduced or diminished?
No, not only is it not diminished, it is also worse, I love that quote from Mother Teresa when she said: ““I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.“
There is an extreme difference in energy output when you feel positive emotions and choose to focus on positive messages, it is a choice, and it is that simple, either you are going to let Ego run your life, or you will take charge, come from the right place and really make the difference in this world and that starts with you becoming the change you want to see in the world.
