The ego has programmed us to want what it wants us to want. When in the unconscious state, we think we want what the ego wants. Today, let us practice setting aside the ego’s constant demands by asking ourselves: “What do I ‘really’ want?” The ego is constantly telling us what we want, but what do we really want? By telling us what we want, in essence, it has control over our thinking and thus over our life. It tries to convince us that we “want” something it has to offer, or that we “need” to behave in a certain manner to achieve one of its illusionary goals. But being illusionary in nature, there is nothing the ego wants that we really want. We know this because, after all is said and done, the ego never delivers the peace of mind, joy, clarity and connection to our Source that we really desire.
Today, let us recall that we have been programmed by the ego to want what it wants since we were babies. Thus many times, what we think we want is not really what we want. Because of this lifelong program, the ego usually becomes our first responder to any situation or interaction. It usually ends up answering for us, and thus we end up living its life, not ours. This leads to feeling unfulfilled. Today, let us interrupt this program and take back control of our own minds. As we do so, we take back control of our own lives. For example, you may want to argue your point and be right, but what you “really” want is to be happy, respected and at peace. What we “really” want is to be, in our own unique ways, a reflection and representative of Love, of our Creator, here on Earth.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
