Ego has been defined as Edging God Out. It is that which draws us away from our natural way of being, away from the essence of who we are, which is Love and Light. Ego is fear-based and takes us to places we have been conditioned to visit such as judgement, negative thoughts, resentment, and anger.
The next time Ego comes knocking, take a moment to breathe and step back before reacting. Be mindful of its presence. Know that you don’t have to open the same door. We have free will and we can choose a different door, always. We can choose acceptance instead of judgment, positive thoughts instead of negative ones, compassion instead of resentment, and peace instead of anger.
It’s a muscle that takes time to build. The victory comes when we’re aware of the presence of Ego and recognize that we can choose something different. We can choose to come from a place of Love. We can walk away from the door where Ego is knocking and walk towards the door that is reflecting back to us that which we are – Love and Light.
You will know which door it is. It’s the door that shines just like you.
