Ego, Desire, Loss & Sacrifice

  • Common Ego Traps looks at some of the more frequent ways that Ego tries to trip you up on a spiritual or personal growth journey.

  • We're definitely butting heads with control structures and 3D souls who want to try and control what they see and cannot understand.

    Luckily yesterday I did see a lot of stuff lift in that regard, and things are starting to flow more easily.

  • Converting someone to your way of thinking or faith by conversion

    The whole idea that you automatically want to convert someone to your way of thinking because you're spiritual is somewhat annoying.

    As is the idea that you want to change someone's mind just because you're talking to them.

    Also, I find people glamorize their journeys, because it is the most exciting thing that's happened to them.

    Truth is that most people's journeys compared to ours are quite boring. Their lives and issues and experiences are quite boring.

  • This set of exercises is designed to help you chip away at resistance and build hope that you can find love again.

  • Why are criticism and feedback so hard to take?

    It doesn’t matter if you’re in the corporate environment or at home with your nearest and dearest, hearing negative feedback about yourself seems to hit hard, and can shatter the way you thought things worked in an instant.

  • I – like so many of us – have been fascinated by human behavior my whole life, which of course has lead to a lot of reading books, biographies and watching documentaries, and I’ve loved the serial killers and cult leaders and their stories.

    So this weekend I watched a completely new one, on a place in California called the Buddhafield, watching it with a new level of awareness obviously.

    It dawned on me that there is a pattern in what all former cult members say about the evolution of cult leaders – they all start out as so holy and so pure, but then it becomes about sex eventually. And when the whole thing collapses, there’s always a sexual scandal attached – one of an extreme nature usually.

  • In Degrees & Types of Spiritual Lessons we unpack the differences between an Ego Death, Trial By Fire & Dark Night of the Soul.

  • Don't personalise the anger, depression, sadness, fear, frustration and anxiety you are feeling. It’s NOT you - it’s global…. and shit is hectic out there!

    Global Check In - 17 May 2018

    Within a few kilometers of my house today there were two Cash-In-Transit heists. This is in addition to the robberies, losses, accidents, illnesses and a complete halt to business and money flow that I am hearing about and seeing.

    It’s every industry, everywhere in the world… and it’s not JUST happening to you. So do NOT personalize this.

    You are going to have make a concerted effort NOT to personalize this, like reminding yourself every few SECONDS that this isn’t just happening to you and is part of a global energy.

  • Ego & People's Responses

    If the person agrees with you, you're passionate.

    If your point of view offends them or conflicts theirs, or seems to offer more logic than theirs, then you are aggressive.

  • Ego is the thought that you are separate from God, and it’s your sense of identity.

    It is the idea that you as a person exist, and the idea that your soul identity continues after death.

  • Ego and conversion - conversion is lazy faith

    The more I think about conversion vs seeking, the more I realise that conversion is lazy faith.

    The thing about the journey is that it is hard - and whether you're consciously journeying or even just manifesting, it's all about building faith, and stamina of faith.

    Everything boils down to faith in the end.

  • Ego and the belief in the physical body

    One of the reasons that physical healing miracles are held in such high esteem above other emotional healing, for example, is that it requires you to detach from the Ego identification of the body.

    What this means in practical terms, is experiences like: understanding that you have no physical body, and that the physical body, like everything in reality, is just accumulated layers of thought in agreement that the body exists.

    Being in the body while denying that it exists creates an interesting kind of cognitive dissonance, I'm not going to lie. It's not an easy balance to maintain.

  • Ego Deaths & Suicides

    Global Energy Check In - 20 September 2017 & about 23 September 2017

  • I’m sorry, I can’t help finding it just a little funny watching all these ego deaths around me the past few days.

    Part of me, first of all, really can’t believe I used to be that bad and take stuff that personally - and yes I can clearly see some of my old behaviors in others lol

    Secondly, I am truly staggered at how much people seem to be determined to hang onto their drama and take it all personally. I was unpacking this with someone and it dawned on me that a lot of this is caused by boredom actually.

  • Basics time: an Ego death is a loss of something you perceive you want - the deep and awful realization that this desire you had will never be fulfilled.

    The shortcut? Accept it!!

    Now special relationships...

  • Ego Deaths vs. Trials by Fire vs. Dark Nights of the Soul

    What's the difference?

  • When this stage of the journey first started happening to me, I couldn’t make any sense of it – it doesn’t make sense how accepting that you are worthless can lead to a breakthrough. I mean aren’t we meant to be realising we’re Gods?

    But the lessons kept coming, in deeper and deeper forms, and so I learned to surrenderto them over time, making the time period that they lasted shorter.

  • Ego in the world - The 8 Deadly Sins

    How perfect is this as a summation of what is wrong with the world and people today?

  • So let’s start with the Ego basics in a nutshell:

    Ego is the mechanism of creation and it allows us to break one large soul into smaller individuated pieces that are complete within their own right.
