My sneaky Ego 7/17

This last month I have been up and down and all around. My emotions feel new and unpredictable- very confusing. I had been seeking to control and fix a lot of things and a clue to that was I had been waking up with my fists clenched.

And then I heard something that allowed me to take a breath and move forward with more awareness.

I was taking a walk and listening to a recovery speaker talk on the topic of surrender. He spoke of how we can be spiritually sick and still be sober. He said that the ego can sneak in like a form of cancer undetected.

The quote that stopped me dead in my tracks was this:

“Spiritually ill people, ego driven people have an absolute inability to observe or listen to hear or see anything new. They only are capable of observing or listening to see how they are already right.”

I am once again humbled by gods grace and divine timing.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  2. Ah dear lady…timing…I got sat on my posterior big time today. Thinking I was going well spiritually, I bumped into the beautiful lady I had fallen madly in love with many, many years ago (upon thought, 10 yrs ago)…my heart started hammering, nerves started to shake and I suddenly realized my greatest fear of rejection had still a hold of my heart. I’ve followed it back just like I tell everyone else and understand it to the tenth degree…and still it speaks to me. It wasn’t as hard as usual but still it wishes to speak. I suppose a lifetimes ingrained reaction must take a few attempts. Or more likely I’m missing something. Ok, maybe I need to approach further and ask with my heart laid bare…maybe this time it will come with some chocolate on top at least. I do hope so 😀❤️🙏🏽

      1. That is one thing that always happens…our fears do come up down the track, just to show us how far we have come and how far past it we now feel. I’ve bumped into her before and chatted but didn’t feel it this strongly. And sometimes it does ‘bits’ only to show up later but from a different angle later to extend our understanding. Who said 10yrs is but a blink of an eye…it was just time to see me…again 😂🤣❤️🙏🏽

  3. Love that quote D !!!! It really hits home on so many fronts. Thanks for sharing it! That is exactly what is going on in the world around us right now. So many are not hearing or listening just staying trapped in their preconceived worlds of being right! It’s ugly to witness…It’s why I stay close to home for now until we finally shift away from this ego driven dimension…If we live by the 4 agreements and remain open to learning and expanding we’ll be okay. I have no worries for you at all. You are walking a very good path and most importantly you are aware. Life saving! VK VK ❤
