Control is something that has been inherent among the human species ever since we can remember. The government has controlled the creation of our laws, rules and regulations, tax, and various other restrictions.
I’m sure you have known many people throughout your life that was dominated by a need to control things.
Unfortunately for us, our world is overrun by people who are dominated by their ego.
So what exactly is the ego?
Throughout the course of my life I have learned many things about myself and life. But one thing that took me awhile to understand was how to overcome the ego and what the ego even is.
The ego is the part of you that makes us the living, breathing physical beings that we are. It connects you to the physical plane and helps us be the conscious critical beings that we are.
It was originally intended as a means for survival so that we could know we are in danger and thus setting off the fear mechanism that tells us to run or fight.
But we have evolved and no longer depend on the ego as much as we used to for survival.
The ego thrives on attention and is the critical part of you that is always second-guessing yourself or others. We can refer to the ego as the ‘I’.
But just because we have an ego doesn’t mean we have to give in to its demands!
The ego is typically satisfied through the accumulation of material things. The ego holds all the doubts and the critical objections to the things you or others are doing.
For instance, you want to become the star football player of your high school team. The only problem is that your ego won’t let you…
And I’m not talking physically of course. I’m saying because of the amount of disbelief you subconsciously repress, you hold yourself back greatly. You might as well go out and play with one leg. Well not literally, but the more you doubt yourself the less likely you are to become the star football player of your high school team.
Why is this important to you?
This is greatly important because we all have egos and some are more controlled by it than others. The important thing is to make sure YOU are the one controlling your life and NOT your ego!
Overcoming your ego:
Overcoming your ego is just another way of saying that you are taking control of your life. When you are in control you have full access to all of your talents and abilities. You are no longer held down by your biggest critic (your ego).
Open your wings by letting go of all sense of judgment for everyone and everything. Clear your mind of negative and destructive thoughts and replace them with loving, encouraging ones!
Make peace with yourself and be open to anything to come into your life. Stop trying to take so much control when the control is out of your hands. Do your best, never give up on yourself and trust that all of your dreams will work out one way or another.
It might be a little scary but think of it this way… As long as you take a chance at your dreams you are still learning about something you love, and if you want to achieve something bad enough then you will find a way to make it happen!
You will find a way because you won’t give up until you find the answer(s) you seek.
At this point in your life you stop pleasing the ‘I’ part of yourself (or the ego) and instead you focus on being the best person you can be and living the happiest, most fulfilling life possible ☺
So I challenge you….
Be the one in control, not your ego, and instead unleash the hidden potential that is inside of all of us. Overcome your fears and negative thoughts and become the person you truly want to be.
When you do this something magical happens…
You finally bypass the ego and let the true you come shining through like a light piercing through the night sky. Your fears, doubts and disbelief are washed away and your dreams are finally free to come into your life.
Don’t be your biggest enemy, be your biggest ally instead ☺
Let me know in the comments how the ego has affected your life and how you were able to overcome it or how you are in the process of overcoming it if you haven’t overcome it yet.May infinite light shine upon you, revealing your path to eternal bliss. Remember, all the answers we seek are only found inside of us, so don’t be afraid to go within. Love and unity to you all <3
Namaste my friends
