Can you please explain to me exactly what the ego is? Is it the way we think about ourselves? Or how we feel about ourselves.. Or is it all of our negative emotions? I’m confused on what it is and how I can transcend it into soul. I feel like I do see all the perspective in the situation, an not just my opinion.. So is that a start, or what?
When you are born you come with two baskets, one that is innate and eternal within you (soul) and one that you fill over time, learned tendencies known as ego. Everyone has an ego, ego is never a bad thing necessarily it’s part of natural life. The trick of the ego is that we need to overcome the darkness to see the light. You have to crawl into your wounds before the healing can start. it’s the embodiment of duality at it’s natural core.
You have positive emotions and negative emotions but you have to ask yourself how do you wish to express yourself?
Do you wish to stay depressed, anger, resentful, envious, full of hatred and jealousy towards others feeling as if you’re alone and separated from the world or would you rather love yourself, feel at peace, joyful, happy for living, enjoying yourself, finding pleasure in everything that life holds for you, connecting with others and loving people?
This is the transition we all experience every day of our lives. What is happening is we’re moving our nature of duality (ego and soul) into a transcendence of unity(harmonic universe).
The ego causes only suffering and separation. You have to see past your OWN illusion before you can notice the suffering and separation that YOU are causing to YOURSELF. The spirit cannot actively participate in love and co-existence when ego remains. It can try, but will only manifest reflections to learn from. The ego is just a learning tool towards love. A child automatically acquires ego, then learns from it. It is normal, and natural. There is nothing WRONG about an ego, just that holding onto it means to remain in these lower dimensions and continue to learn that suffering and separation is a self-creation, and if you wish to ascend to higher dimensions, you cannot bring the ego with you.
We’re all trying to shed this in our own time, through protection of the stubborn sometimes sporadic and greedy inner child ♥ but in time we all learn to integrate it ♥
If you believe in limitations, separations, judgment and fear of any kind, you have bought into the illusion that has been sold to you by the ego as reality. Likewise, if you respond to any person, place or thing with judgment, sadness, negativity, stress, anxiety, annoyance or anger, know that you have bought into the same illusion. These beliefs of what you are have been ingrained and reinforced in you in such a way that they have now become habitual. These habits, this habitual belief system (simply referred to as the ego-self or ego) is what you use to react to your daily experiences. This habitual belief system is mostly an unconscious belief system that manifests itself as your beliefs and attitudes.~ Maria (starsister)
If we love without fear the world will know peace <3
