Balancing Ego and Spirit


“It’s very helpful to say “spirit, spirit, spirit” whenever you feel ego is overstepping its boundaries. Anything other than pure unconditional love is ego, of course, so we have to be very cautious in our thoughts, words and actions not to let it rear its ugly head and cloud our judgment. So this becomes a daily practice: Just say to yourself, “Is this ego or spirit talking?” If its ego, we think, “How can I redirect my thoughts towards spirit?” If its spirit, we simply smile and express gratitude for the guidance we are given. ”
