EGO is about Edging God/Goodness Out

I recently have been involved in on online chat with a LinkedIn group about healing. We have been adding short comments in relation to the question ‘Why are some folks afraid to be healed?’ It has been a good discussion and here’s what I posted today:

The relinquishment of pain and all forms of suffering is foreign to the egoic mind. In today’s contemporary literature the definition of the ego has changed from the classical Freudian teachings. Simply put and defined as an acronym, the ‘EGO’ is all that Edges Goodness/God Out of our lives or our consciousness. It is totally fear-based and all about destruction and negativity. Logically, then and simply put as an acronym, the opposite of the ‘ego’ is all that is Good Orderly Direction or GOD- or more secularly all that is about love and positivism. Having worked with this concept for many years now, one would think that I would never get sick again, however that’s just not the case. Although my ‘ills at ease’ rarely prevent me from functioning and being successful, anymore. I need to be gentle with myself and accept that I am a spiritual being having a physical experience – complete with what makes me the most human, my ego. Learning to observe without judgement has been my biggest challenge and it is a big challenge we face as helping professionals, too.

What have been your experiences dealing with your egoic mind? I’d love to hear from you.

Smiles & Blessings,

Celeste Emelia 🙂
