"In much of the New Age spiritual movement, personal ego and autonomy are frowned upon along with sexuality, passion, desire, need, and the sacredness of the body. While letting go of attachment and transcending the smallness of the ego are essential steps for obtaining a universal consciousness, this achievement is pure diffusion and possibly escape if we lack a healthy ego to support such transcendence.
(...) Without autonomy, we cannot get to the heart, for our love comes from need rather than strength, a desire to escape rather than expand (...)
The ego is like a house. It is where we live. It contains us, gives us a place to grow and change, and create boundaries, which are necessary for forming ourselves as an entity. Many spiritual disciples advise us to transcend the ego, and consider it something bad, limiting, or false. The problem of the ego is not that it is limiting - but that we let ourselves be confined by it at all times. We stay confined out of fear, guilt or shame, and never go outside to the larger world, never open our windows and doors. It is not wrong to have a home, but it should be an anchor for experience, not a limitation. Keeping this in perspective enables us to both have a strong ego and transcend it as well" Annodea Judith
Build your house on strong foundations. Create ambiance that is friendly, safe and supporting, and then clean and declutter regularly. Make it a place you want to come back to rather than run away from.

I don't listen to any #news report or #socialmedia video with #Trump talking in it. I #love my #peace more. I scroll down really quickly on my news feed any time I see him so I don't catch any part of his idiotic rhetoric. It's blissful not having to hear that #whitesupremacist speak, but I do find the memes & vids like this entertaining... So he rescinded his invitation to #StephCurry like any self-respecting #blackman would want a seat at his #racist table 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. His #EGO knows no bounds! #hilarious#Repost from @balleralert - From the desk of #MichaelRapoport
You can first recognize a complex in yourself by acknowledging when you have an unusual amount of emotion about something in your life. Particularly when another person does something that might not even affect you, and you have feelings about it. Ask yourself why you are having feelings, identify the reason (be honest with yourself), and shine light on that reason. That's all you have to do to start breaking down complexes!
As you peel away the layers of discovery, going deeper and deeper into your truth. There is a point where you integrate who you are becoming with the world around you. However you look around and realize that everything has changed...your perception, your desires, your conversations, your goals, your understanding, the way you think and the way you want to be.
Do not be afraid to embrace your authenticity. Do not be afraid to speak your truth when it's needed.
As each of us truly embraces our authenticity from a higher perspective we raise the collective vibration around us.
Opening space for others to do the same.
The universe needs our assistance in changing the old program of interaction in the world around us. Shifting from an unconscious state of being, fear based thinking and acting to one of empowerment, unconditional love and truth.
And we hold space for a new way of interacting with those we love, friends, family and strangers. Breaking old programs and shifting old habits of interaction.
Those of you who are going through these deep awakenings have light to shed. Embody that light.
Notice the light in others. Remind them if their light through your high vibration.
All my love

Ego says, “Once everything falls into place, I'll feel peace.” Spirit says, “Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place.
