EGO or LOVE
I wrote this a couple of years ago, led by spirit and used it on one of my radio broadcast. It seems to be relevant in the NOW. Enjoy
Do you know what ego is? Ego is the self; especially as distinct from the world and other selves. In psychoanalysis the division of the psyche that is conscious and most immediately controlled by thought and behavior and is most in touch with external reality.
Ego is appropriate pride in oneself and one’s self esteem. The ego is the center of consciousness; it is an eye from which we look at the world. Ego is an executive if you will, it makes decisions, and it implements our will. It is the organizer; it makes a distinction between the inner world and the outer world and it notes our perception from both.
By conceptualizing, labeling and organizing those perceptions from both, it tries to make sense of them and files them in various contexts where we can make considerations regarding their value for potential threat or benefit.
As we walk upon our spiritual walk we are going to come upon resistance, there is no way around it. It will happen. It will happen to you and it will happen to me, it will happen to all of us. It is so important to walk in love and not in ego.
Love is what will see us through, not ego. Love is what will protect you from harm, ego will not. Think about this, what would Jesus do? What did Jesus do? Jesus was criticized and chastised and finally crucified for what he believed in. Did he strike back? No. Did he turn his back on others? No, because he walked in Love.
Love brings healing for all things. His last words were “father forgive them, they know not what they do”. Think about that for a moment. He did not beg for mercy, he did not back down on his beliefs and he even extended love to those who turned their backs on him. Do any of you think that you are better than that? Jesus was crucified in more ways than we can imagine for walking in spirit. So why would any of us think that we can go on this journey, without being held accountable.
We endure tests along the way, we are all children in the school of spirit and none of us has all the answers. We only seek them each step of the way. We cannot allow judgment to cloud our vision, we can’t allow naysayers to darken our light, and we cannot allow ego to tarnish our heart.
If at any time you are confronted by anything or anyone, consider what Jesus would do. He would send them love and healing, wouldn’t he? Of course he would. Spirit wants us to grow to reach for what we yearn for and have all we ever imagined. We all have wonderful gifts and these gifts are given to us to help us grow in love.
When we use our gifts for ego, we are going to find ourselves in a quiet place wondering, where it all went, what happened. The universe will not stand for these gifts to be used for the ego. We are all teachers, and we are all healers and ego does not go with either category. Love is what will carry us and allow us to grow.
Some of you may not have experienced love the way I have and yet many of you know exactly what I’m speaking of. Once you feel the love of the Holy Spirit run through you, you will never return to ego. That love is something so extraordinary that there are no words to describe it. I wish there was a way to describe it to you because it is so profound that you will no longer have doubt about what you are here for. It is almost overwhelming. The first time I felt it, I cried, and wanted to hold onto it and never let it go. But then you realize that, that kind of love flowing through you has not place here. Not now, not yet.
We are being prepared, to receive this love but we have to stay on the journey together. We the teachers, the healers, we are here to unite. We are here to light the way and yet we allow ego to step in and cloud the vision. We will be tested; we will face challenges, because without them we stand still, we stagnate. We are here to grow. Face the challenges with love. I know we are human and I know it’s difficult to do that sometimes but we need to try and remember the vision, the goal.
Let’s try to remember where we are going and how many need us to assist them in getting there. Some go so far, only to find themselves back at the starting line. How sad is that, to go so far in your journey to start over, because you skipped lessons along the way. For those of you seeking today, at whatever level you may be, remember this, as you walk on your path ; if ever, someone or someplace makes you feel uncomfortable or does not feed your spirit and make your heart feel warm and safe, walk away. Find that place elsewhere. What you are here seeking is the energy of the light, the joy of spirit to fill your heart and the presence of angels to lift you up. If you are not uplifted with light and joy, then find a place that will provide that.
Judge not, lest thou be judged. We’ve all heard that saying, and it is so true. Hold your thoughts, hold your tongue and instead, send healing and let the universe take care of the rest. I know at times, that is easier said than done but it’s really not. Simply ask the angels to send healing, it’s that simple. When you send healing, you also receive healing. It’s so much nicer to send healing and stay in that heightened state of spirit, why would anyone want to come off that high?
I’m not perfect by any means and I don’t have all the answers but I seek them wherever I can. It becomes a thirst that can’t be quenched. Let’s not deny water to those who need a drink. I feel so blessed to have found this place, and found all of you. I love each and every one of you and I truly mean that. Some of you have helped me grow, you’ve fed my spirit and some of you I have been fortunate enough to help in some way.
It’s amazing when you step back and look at the big picture and see how we each teach and we each learn and we heal and we are blessed to have a community for our spirit to soar in. Let’s keep it a safe place for those who are seeking, for those who thirst. I hope in some way this message has cut to the heart of those who needed to hear it and has healed the hearts of those that needed mending. Try every day to pull ego back in just a little, just for a moment and look at the situation or the person, through the eyes of love. Then decide what you would do, what Jesus would do.
Realize we are not all in the same place on our journey. We are all teaching and we are all learning and when we have conflict around those who are here to have their spirits fed, they need to be able to reach out and receive a message.
Many times we walk alone, many remain in the closet with their gifts but the time has come to step out and share and allow our hearts to grow. We are here to lift each other, to help others find that light within, to love one another and grow in that love and radiance we each share. Take time to share the energy and the magic of spirit and allow your lights to shine brightly. Be the lamppost in the darkness so that others may find you as they seek the light and find their path on this journey.
Face challenges with love and let YOUR light shine!!
