An open space for global conversation
My suggestion is to occupy your ego. Take the counter-intuitive, the shaman's path. Ever play with a Chinese finger puzzle? It's the Taoist solution to disentanglement and freedom. George had a tough time with it. But then, don't we all? The key is unresistance.
I used to do a program called Cherish Your Ego, which made spiritual folks absolutely nuts. They would make all kinds of exorcist-type gestures when they saw me coming. Not really, but their heads tilted until they actually heard what I was saying. Then they were angry I hadn't told them sooner. Yes, really!
When you get out of the virtual realm of ideas and concepts and enter the visceral realm of your felt senses, things get much simpler. Not particularly logical at first, but much simpler. I lived the first half of my spiritual life in the world of intellectual understanding of the Universe, even after my awakening. Mainly because I ascended out of my body.
When I entered the second phase of my journey, into my body, I discovered that most of what I thought was sourced in my mind, was in fact, dictated by my body—while making my mind look like the culprit. Ever get caught in that strategy? My younger brother used to get me in trouble all the time with it.
I'm going to share how you can disarm and neutralize what you call your ego, faster than you thought possible. When you have the right tool and know how and where to use it, you look like a miracle worker. Really, it's about having a clearer understanding of how we actually function.
What does ego mean to you?
If your ego were your significant other, how would you describe your relationship?
Describe your most effective strategy, if any, for dealing with your ego? How does it affect your effectiveness as a change agent?
