The ego is TOTALLY wrong! It is a piece of flotsam and jetsam floating around in your Holy Mind. We come into this world and its voice is what we hear UNTIL we look at it, decide it is wrong and ask for HELP to “see” another way. The ego is not your friend. It tells you to be fearful, mistrust others, be jealous, judge everyone but tries to sound like its loving or lovable. If you are thinking of hurting yourself, those thoughts are from the ego. That’s why it’s not your friend.
We become suspicious of the world and what we think we see! We ask: Is this all there is? And Why? You may have a list of grievances that have accumulated since the first grade, right? Write them down on a piece of paper. That is all they are…..words on a piece of paper. You don’t have to carry them around and worship them OR continue to believe it is true or pay homage to it or build a victim’s altar to it in your mind! It is all from the ego and it is from the past. Our perceptions are false.
You do have an alternative. That alternative is also in your mind and it is called by many names: Holy Spirit, Truth, Grace, Wisdom, Voice of Truth, Intuition, The Answer and others. It came with us along with the ego however; the ego’s voice is loudest in the world. The Quiet Answer is Peace. And it is the solution.
All you need to do is find time out of your busy day to be still. Go within to the quiet center. Close your eyes take some deep breaths and go to the place in your mind where it is still. Thoughts may come but disregard them. Ask for wisdom to see through the eyes of peace. Take one particular problem and say: “I need to see this differently. I want another way to see this.” This can be done even when there is chaos all around you. Like screaming children, sirens, noise from a crowd or city streets. It only takes a minute to access the Peace available in your mind.
Open you mind to the possibility that help IS available. Changing your belief that you are alone and dependent on the ego. You are NOT. Ask for another perspective to come to you. The perspective of Peace!
We tend to see only the past because the ego keeps feeding it to us: Lesson 7. I see only the past. Perhaps some of your grievances are from the past?
Here is the lesson. Just click on the “speaker” and listen. Take it in and it may not seem like it but we do carry the past our mind and it reflects, projects and “colors” the future. Be Free!!
