The ego lives by comparisons. It cannot survive without judgment. – A Course in Miracles (ACIM)
It’s that part of us that makes life possible. It’s the practical aspect of self that allows us to make decisions daily. Its job is to preserve the self and it does so in a very mechanical and selfish manner. The ego compares and judges constantly. It does that to preserve self in relation to others. For the ego more is always better and being right is always preferable.
Knowing who the real master is, is to know how to transcend the ego. When we reflect or step back we’re allowing more than the ego to operate. Acknowledging that there’s a greater mind than ours, that greater things are afoot and that a master designer rules the foundational realms, is to know how to transcend the ego.
We decide, we choose our thoughts and therefore are we masters of our self and our ego!
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM my own master.
