EGO – Expression of goals and opportunities…

Does the Divine have an ego? According to some spiritual traditions humans are fashioned in the image of their deity. Does it follow then that the judeo-christian-muslim deity has an ego?

If it is “divine ego” that creates spectacular scenery and perfection such as this photo portrays then I say, more power to it. The ego has had a bad wrap and I, upon the inspiration of one of my spiritual mentors (Rev Angelica Jayne Taggart), thought to do a re-write on some of the negative publicity the ego has been receiving of late. Ego is really our ability to express goals and opportunities. It is what drives us to achieve more and give our best. It is the ego which propels us to express our goals and achieve when there are opportunities presented.

All hail the ego, from herein something to be admired not admonished. It is our ego which saves us from harm. Without a healthy ego we could not build healthy emotional boundaries from which to inform the world who we are and what we want and need in life. Without a healthy ego we would not preserve ourselves in situations of danger. It is our ego which says we have importance in the world. It is our ego which tells us we are deserving. These things, in and of themselves, are laudable. But the ego does not stop there. The ego gives us a sense of worth that allows us to pursue our dreams and build on opportunities in life.

What is it that we want in our lives? What is it that stops us from having it? Often it is our belief in our worthiness. Good news. Our ego can rescue us and is happy to do so. But our ego is only the mechanism from which to introduce ourselves to our deservability. Our true worth lies deep within and we must embody our beliefs in our subc0nscious mind if we are to truly achieve great things. The ego is part of our conscious mind and if we practice meditation or visualizations we can move from thinking (conscious) into believing (unconscious).

So today I will try and make more time for my ego. I need to make sure that my ego is healthy. I want to ensure my ego helps and not hinders me. The negative ego self can be as destructive as the healthy ego is constructive. So let’s do some spring cleaning on our egos and get ready to be the fullest expression of our goals and make the most of each opportunity that comes our way.

Today I say “yes” to the universe and my ego says “yes you can” and so I believe, and I create, and so it is.
