“Soon the child’s clear eye is clouded over by ideas and opinions, preconceptions and abstractions. Simple free being becomes encrusted with the burdensome armor of the ego. Not until years later does an instinct come that a vital sense of mystery has been withdrawn. The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day, we become seekers.” ♥♥♥ ~Peter Matthiessen
When we honor, and remember, our Original Spirit the child within us reunites with the light of the universe! Like a baby on her back, arms and legs swaying to the warmth of the golden sun, we recall our calming connection to Source.
The ego will pack on layers of fear, illusions of difficulties, and a handful of bravado. It is up to us to peel back the ego’s armor and allow our souls to dance their tune of origination. Only then will we align just as it was intended. Free flowing, no force, just being and falling beautifully into place along your path.
Enjoy your road, wherever you may be, and nurture nature’s soul with faith, trust, love and light…and watch…
The choice to let go and let God, in a quest to eliminate our attachment to being right, is simplified with these few words: You’re right about that. – Dr. Wayne Dyer
If we all could learn to say, “you’re right about that” more often there would be a lot more understanding in this world. Just saying this phrase opens you up to listen, not judge, accept, and learn. Learn that your attachment to being right isn’t the answer. That is only ego puffing out his little chest. In practicing being open you just might learn something of value.
When we have to be “right” we block all other information from entering our conscious and unconscious mind. Imagine what we might miss in this stubborn process! I learn from you, you learn from me, and maybe, just maybe, we can work together and journey to a productive outcome.
Ego attachment leaves you alone and lonely. While you are sitting with yourself in your legendary mind remember that it takes love, caring, forgiveness and giving service to others to feel whole again. We are all a part of each other, open to working and creating together. Dictation and separation only leaves pieces of fluff floating in the air. Do you choose to be whole and full or empty and scattered? Always your choice.
So….even though I suggest you not attach to ego, if you look at me and say, “I like my ego and I have to be right!”, I just might say to you, “you’re right about that.” Imagine the conversation that could unfold. Maybe, just maybe, we will learn from each other.
