A new and different relationship with ego (2)

We are urged to overcome the #Ego and set aside the "little self". The ego must "die" for us to achieve expanded consciousness.  And the ego's resistance to being annihilated is evidence that the ego is bad and must be annihilated. This sets us on a futile quest based on a nonsequitur - an argument in which the conclusion doesn't follow logically from what preceded it. And this story about the ego has been told so often over the millennia and with such conviction, that by now many of us accept this without question. I'd like to tell a story about the ego via a story about going for a walk. Let's say I've been sitting in a chair in front of a computer for my entire life. I've figured out th

A new and different relationship with ego (1)

The first in a series of #MindfulMusings about our relationship with the ego In the loving quest to inspire us to greater and wider, more meaningful and purposeful experience, cutting edge thought leaders regularly use disparaging language to talk about the #ego and its role in our lives.

Advocating for #Kindness in all aspects of how we resonate with ourselves and others, I remain yours, Monica Schober Cultivate your Resonance and shine your Light in a world that needs your gifts. #MindfulMusings #OptimizeYour

Marcus Aurelius on relationship with our story

Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD), kept a journal that survived the millennia, now called "The Meditations". Discovering the profound in the midst of his every day concerns delights me. He reaches out to me across the millennia along one of the common threads of our humanity: "If you are pained by external things, it is not they that disturb you, but your own judgment of them. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgment now." Marcus Aurelius Another way of saying this, and perhaps a little more softly, is this: We can change our relationship with the story that is driving our #InternalVoice so that what we resonate with, how we respond internally to what we resonate wi
