Arrogance of ego or highest truth?
The ultimate arrogance of ego is thinking it knows better than the highest truth of the heart!
Just pause to take that in. It really says it all.
What was your reaction? Did it resonate, make you smile or even giggle or did it bring up some resistance or some combination of these?
Your hearts response to this is the truthful one and you already know this. So why waste energy on the other stuff. The stuff of egoic mind?
For that’s what you are conditioned to do is waste energy on the untruths of ego mind.
At an event earlier this week whilst speaking with someone she’d had the realisation that being in the ego mind space was draining, draining her battery so to speak.
It was a great realisation for being in ego or personhood is like this. It is draining, tiring, stressful and more.
Ego mind is always analysing, questioning, doubting, holding back or stomping around. All a bit tiring? Yes.
Compared to glowing with the flow of grace and insight. Divinely inspired action of the heart.
Which will you choose? Which are you choosing?
Why have you chosen ego mind in the past or for the future? Ulitmately, it is out of fear. Ego has this illusion it is keeping you safe. But safe from what?
Yes, its demise. For ego says:
But who will I be if you let me go?
Yet Infinite Silence.
Let’s look at this a little more deeply. Ego = Mind = Thoughts + a set of beliefs.
A set of beliefs that are fluid and built up over time based on a potent cocktail of conditioning from parents, family, friends, teachers, society – the channels are many and the onslaught almost constant.
Looking at life through the lens of ego produces a confused picture. It has a very limited and clouded lens and, at the very best, only sees the tiniest part of the picture. It makes assessments and judgements and decisions based on this limited and confused database.
Heart, on the other hand, has a direct connection to source, to Infinite Silence which sees the total picture indeed is the total picture!
Going with ego is a game of Russian Roulette you will never win. It will kill you and it will do so painfully.
This may seem a bit stark but you know it is true. Not because I say so but because the inner knowing already sees this.
The system is perfect though because in the pain of the slow death created by ego a miracle occurs! This miracle is thus:
In the suffering is your invitation to truth.
It is saying: “Don’t go this way. Let it go and follow the heart instead.”
Will you listen? For you are always at choice.
The ultimate arrogance of ego is thinking it knows better than the highest truth of the heart.
Blessings as Infinite Silence,
