The True Role of the Ego

The ego is actually a very necessary part of the personality

Which one inherits with a body

For when the ego is aligned to support ‘Higher Consciousness’ intent

It is capable of great good

As it is not a battle with the ego

It is not about transcending the ego, or conquering it

For the ego cannot be suppressed

And is required by the personality to provide a healthy balanced sense of Self

Rather it is about acquiring a better understanding of it’s true role

Which can only be achieved by embracing, befriending, taming and training the ego

As one would a toddler

For the ego is still seeking attention

So that one may acknowledge and validate it’s presence

However, what the ego requires is an ‘inner parenting’:

Grooming, in preparation of greatness

Enables the ego to align correctly and fulfil it’s true purpose

Which is to work alongside the Spiritual deity

Supporting higher-consciousness intent as manifest in the physical world

And by coming from a place of heartsupported-mind

One can move beyond the ‘I’, the personal

And when the ego is correctly aligned in this way

From beyond the perspective of the ‘I’

Focused on the unconditional, universal and the transpersonal, spiritual

Humility is activated, which is a valuable time-saving mechanism

For gratifying the ego, appearing right, being in control, having the last say

Chasing after advertising illusions, status upgrades, mimicking Hollywood role play…

These are all time-wasting distractions

While planet Earth and her inhabitants are plundered

By unsustainable consumerism, ignorance and war

More and more each day

And while the ego languishes out of balance

Seduced by the advertising aesthetic and the media

Into supporting the capitalist mentality that seeks to acquire more and more

money/ possessions/ status/ kudos and power through competition and dominion

Rather than through co-operation and compassion

It creates havoc, misery and pain through a polarised perspective of the ‘Self’

Instant gratification to the exclusion of all else

With zero understanding of how this polarised point of focus

Adversely affects everything around us

For we are all part of the macro / microcosm

We do not operate alone, we are always a part of the whole

We cannot separate ourselves from this

To try to do so, is to operate in denial

However, when ones spiritual wealth comes from within

(Rather than trying to feed it from without)

The ego can support ‘higher-consciousness’ intent to motivate the will:

The will, to will, thy Divine will: a call to serve

To implement great beneficial change and transformation as manifest

Leveraged at lightning speed

It is a very powerful tool of initiation that can activate the higher will

And when the ego is in alignment with Source-Energy’s divine intelligence

It can achieve truly amazing things!

This is the ego’s true potential.

‘Gaia is the spirit of nature, it’s another word for the Tao, if you befriend her, she protects you. She will eventually change the world and take it back from humans, because they hurt her and her children, the animals. All equations are balanced in the end, can’t wait really.’ – Stuart Wilde

Psychic Connection

Even now I can still feel when you’re thinking about me

After all this time, it beams in, slices through geographic space

Sometimes its like you’re right here in the room with me

Your thoughts are so strong

It’s even possible on occasion

That we may share the exact same memory

At the exact same time, synchronistically

A similar nostalgia, for something precious we once had

Now long gone, impossible to recreate…

Cloud Burst

You look up from behind a blind gaze

Where grey thoughts do battle

Like dark clouds gathering

In stormy collide

Weigh heavily on eye-lids laden

With worried imaginings

Riddles and codes of life, yet to be solved

Of powerful emotions, yet to be tamed

Unspoken desires hang in the air bristling with speculation

I long to see the cloud burst’s gleam

For in my head we are already dancing, laughing

In a parallel world that doesn’t yet exist

We are not confined by urban restraints

Or thoughts for the past, we are free

United spirits enjoying the unfoldment of spontaneous adventure

Your gentle strength supports my vulnerability

So that in a world of shifting sand and shadow

My doubts do not destroy me

I catch your gaze, you see me, a smile

Like a rainbow in the sky

Joy, my heart dances
