When you identify with ego, with individuality, separateness, and scarcity, you see yourself as naked and vulnerable in an unfriendly world. Transcend your ego, and you discover that behind every perceived separation from spirit is a doorway to the divine.
Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.
Lose yourself in ego and you unconsciously act selfishly. Lose yourself in spirit and you consciously act selflessly.
Once you get hold of selflessness, you’ll be dragged from your ego and freed from many traps. Come, return to the root of the root of your self.
Ego directs you to judge others by the way they look and act. Spirit urges you to look past superficialities and honor the divine essence of all.
As we persist in judging one another by what we appear to be, we are all taking part in a great masquerade.
The voice of spirit sings out, “One for all, and all for one.” The voice of ego smugly announces, “It’s all about me, all the time.”
Ego has a voracious appetite, the more you feed it, the hungrier it gets.
Nathaniel Bronner, Jr.
Although your ego obscures your vision of the world beyond your senses, it is indispensable. By enabling you to navigate the physical world, your ego unwittingly prepares you for your eventual reunion with higher consciousness.
Enlightenment is your ego’s biggest disappointment.
