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 usually always fear, mistrust, jealousy, judgment and something is thinks is love.
It makes us 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 still true” or pay homage to it or build a victim’s altar to the past in your mind! It is all from the ego and it is the past!
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 you along with the ego however; the ego’s voice is loudest in the world. The alternative is healing; it is quiet, it 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. You will know it when you get there. Close your eyes take some deep breaths and go to the place where your mind is still. Thoughts may come but disregard them. Ask the inner 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 that is always available in your mind.
Open to the possibility that help IS available. Change your belief that you are alone and dependent on the ego. You are NOT. Ask for the perspective of wisdom to come to you, the perspective of Peace!
We tend to see only the past because the ego keeps feeding it to us: Take a look at A Course In Miracles, Lesson 7. I see only the past. Most 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, look at it and realize it was nothing and let it go. Do not let guilt enter your mind. That is the ego voice coming through the back door!
