AKA, Excess pride leads to disconnection and defeat.
That moment when you know what you need to do but it goes against everything you told yourself you were capable of doing and everything you told yourself you would ever do…
Did this moment stop you from doing the thing? Or did you check that ego at the door and say,
“Fuck it, I’m a new me today.”
I bet that when you listened to your intuition and did the thing that was so against your normal character, it made you feel good.
Checking the ego, our pride, and dropping it when it hinders us from doing what we really want or need to do changes us. It allows to grow forward and break through the boundaries we set up in ourselves. Once we break through those boundaries the first time, we’re more likely to do it a second time, a third, a fourth and so on until it becomes so easy to listen to our inner voice, we’re surprised that we ever were able to ignore it. We become even more connected with our true self, which might be nothing like who we thought we were. We free our minds just a lil bit more each time we listen to our true self and get closer to what people call “invincible”, meaning that even when we are going through the low points in our life, we know that soon we will come back to steady ground. We ride the waves of life instead of being drowned in the disappointment of our world not meeting our expectations. What does the world care about our expectations?? Our expectations are not the creator or co-creator of our lives, so if your expectations are causing you any pain, sadness, anger, drop them! That’s just extra baggage we don’t need to weigh us down.
On Collective Benefit Through Ego Death
We are all here to benefit one another. This is why children need to be nurtured, why we set up communities and cultures, why we have households, teams, groups and cliques. We are naturally communal beings. And one of our greatest (if not the greatest) purposes as people is to be and share our love! We are creatures made of love just like the entirety of our Universe is, and this only becomes distorted when we disconnect from our true selves. We disconnect by building and impenetrable ego built of hurt pride, envy and lack of forgiveness. But listen…
“Under all egos is a being of love and light.”
You can take my word for it or you can do the Self-Work to find out!
Embracing the community and utilizing what it has to offer you can allow you to not only connect more to yourself and what you have to offer, but it will help you grow and prosper. The tools are here, your tribe is here!
“Don’t let your pride tell you that you don’t deserve success.”
