Daily Inspiration: October 16. What is The Ego? – Condensed Version

The ego is not evil, nor is it your enemy. To define the ego as evil or the enemy is to give the ego a power it does not have. The ego is simply a limited and illusionary belief system within the mind. The ego expands or contracts depending on the time, focus and energy we give to it. The ego supports thoughts that are in seeming opposition to Love, God, All. Yet because God is All, in truth, there could never be an opposition to Love, All, God. Thus in essence, the ego is not true or real. Whatever the ego supports as natural, normal and proper expressions of who we are — are really just false concepts. They are delusional programs that we have been taught are true. Whatever the ego supports as true is false. Whatever it supports as reality is illusionary in nature. When we are aligned with the ego, we are not being who we are in truth.

Today, when you do not feel at peace, do not get frustrated. Instead, recognize that you feel this way because you are allowing the ego to think for you. All you need to do is to correct your thinking and realign with your loving nature. Love is who you are and is thus your natural state of mind. Peace is one of the numerous expressions of Love. Thus peace is also your natural state of mind. God, being Love, can and will use all for good. He can even use the ego’s mindset and tools to help you heal and awaken. God is Love and All. Thus all people and situations in your life are here to help lift you to a higher level of consciousness in some way, shape or form. You are here to be and represent your loving Source in whichever ways are most natural to you. When you do, you will behold the ego’s mindset and tools dissolve before your light and understanding.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.

James~Love this! Even after 25 years of ACIM, these words help me define the relationship with EGO. Also, love these daily reminders.

Thank you Cynthia for being a member of our community.

Only the love that God is could we ever be, and so today let us simply be who the Creator of the Universe created us to be. By doing so we help guide others back into alignment with their eternal loving light filled essence and nature.

Peace. JBC

Not all thoughts are loving. Sometimes our ego gets in the way. We have to back up our thinking, in a loving way. The gift of discernment can help us to know, what is from God and what is not. Thank you for all your input.

Thank you Margie for being open to the message.

When unloving thoughts try to enter our mind’s kingdom, let us recall we have free will, stop supporting the thoughts that are not supporting us, align with our loving nature, and then offers all others only the love that we are.

Peace. JBC
