The Currency Of Your Ego Is Fear
Jun 08, 2019
You are no more in control of the fact that you think than you are of the fact that you breathe.
Thinking is an ability, not a reality.
The thoughts that race through your mind are not your responsibility. The actions that you take based on the thoughts that race through your mind most certainly are your responsibility.
The moment you intuitively understand this is the moment you truly realise that you are free from the pointless need to control thought.
Simply observe it and if it seems like it is coming from a place of love and growth, act upon it.
If however it seems to be coming from a place of fear and unnecessary protection, a place of the big ‘I am’, a place of disconnection then know it for what the thought truly is.
A shadow, not a reality.
It is a blinkered thought of self protection. The protection called upon by your ‘little mind’, your sense of ‘must be protected at all costs’ self.
The currency of your ego is fear.
It is designed to keep you safe from Sabre Tooth Tigers.
They don't exist anymore and so your ego manufactures it's very own Sabre Tooth Tigers just to have a job to do.
In other words it makes up things to scare you and then keeps you safe from the things it makes up.
It knows not what it does.
It's like an anxious, insecure parent who overreacts
Treat it with pity but pay it no heed.
