Today, let us remember that because we have been programmed by the ego, in most cases, the ego is our first responder. So do not be surprised or disappointed in yourself if your initial reaction to a brother, sister or situation is some form of judgment. Instead, learn to see this judgment of self or others as simply a sign that the ego is currently in control of your thinking and mind. For example, when you ask yourself: “What do I want?” know that more than likely, the ego will beat you to the answer and thus answer for you. So you need to follow-up that question with another one: “What do I really want?” This will give your mind time to figure out what is truly in your best interests. We ask the follow-up question to make sure that we are in control of our thinking, not the ego.
Today, let us practice becoming better at noticing the difference between our programmed-self and our true-self. Our programmed-self is the ego or false self that we have been taught to see as us. When the ego-self is acting for us, it is living our life for us. A few signs that show you that the ego is in control are when you are being judgmental, angry or resentful. A few signs that show you that your true self is in control are when you are being compassionate, forgiving and peaceful. Do not put yourself or others down if you find that the ego has been living your life for you. Instead, understand what is going on, use free will to take back control of your own mind, and once again begin to feel, act and react through Love, as your Creator’s creation, as who you are meant to be.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
