The third in a series of #MindfulMusings about our relationship with the ego. Ego is a vital, albeit small life muscle that should be developed in relation to all the bigger life muscles. We must individuate - that's the setup for perceiving three dimensionality. That's Egos' job - to help us perceive and play in this 3 dimensionality. We've used the tool we call Ego to do the job of other life tools. Most significantly we've replaced the Tools of Intuition and Mindfulness, among others with the Tool of Ego. Why are we horrified at a swollen #ego when that ego has heroically been doing a job it's not designed to do, and in the process has been developing callouses and cysts, tears and scars?
