Ego Vesus Heart!

Sometimes it seems as if I am in a constant battle with my ego and I know this takes me away from the things I really want, the things that my spirit knows is best for me. My ego is the idea that I am what I do, what I have or what I think other people think of me, and the truth is: I am so much more and so are you!

This battle with my ego often causes my heart to become hard and encourages me to be moody, arrogant and selfish, which is the exact opposite of what I really am and what I truly want to be. I was created with a soft and tender heart that says: “I am peace, humble and giving all wrapped up in supernatural love.”

When I am my real self, my spirit self, the self that God created me to be, then God is able to move through me and it is such a wonderful and amazing experience that words cannot even come close to explaining. This is an experience where self gets out of the way and allows Spirit to shine all the beautiful gifts to and through my spirit’s presence in this human experience.

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” -Ephesians 4:31-32

So take a few moments today to realize this life is sometimes a very real battle, but it is a battle worth engaging in and ultimately winning. And to win the battle with the ego, we must focus on doing two things:

1. We must get rid of all, not some of the by-products of ego. We have to take on, take out and get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, brawling, slander and every form of malice.

2. We must replace the empty space with kindness, compassion and forgiveness. In others words: We give to others what God has given to us. We cannot give something to someone else, if we do not have it for ourself, so first we must receive the kindness, compassion and forgiveness and then we are empowered to share it with others.

Getting rid of the bad and replacing it with the good empowers us from the inside out and gives us a victory that cannot be obtained in any other way. It is a battle, but it’s a battle worth fighting to get our heart soft, tender and ready for the supernatural seed of the Almighty…

A Moment In Time!

At the moment, I find that I am intrigued by moments. I mean, when you stop for a moment and think about it, it’s the moments that we live for. What exactly is it that makes a moment? We love to play the game of idolization, which tends to make another time, another place and another person, situation or condition the magical moment, but in truth, this is just a game we play, so we don’t have to face reality, which can sometimes sting.

We often avoid the reality of the present moment by romanticizing some moment from our past or fantasizing some moment in our future and the great tragedy is that we miss the magic of the present circumstances with all of their potential to bring about the miraculous.

If you wonder why we do it? It’s because of our ego. We like to think that we are what we have, what we do or what we think others think of us, but we are so much more! And we must take on the wild monkeys running around in our ego mind, so that we can overcome this habit of self sabotage. This is the very bad habit that keeps getting in the way of our living in the pure peace of the present moment with all of its potential for the things that can’t be explained and only experienced.

You are here, in this time and place for a reason. The only question that really matters is: “What are you going to do with this?” I am finding myself more and more at this very unique place and I have to admit that I like it. I don’t want anything, I don’t expect anything, I just simply allow whatever and live with it, learn from it and let it take me where it will. Some people may say that I am going with the flow, but I like to think that I am allowing myself to be the flow – going wherever for whatever I was created for…

Mark 8:36 says “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, but lose his soul?”

So many of us today are wandering around looking for our souls in a moment of time and missing the heart and spirit of the moment that we are in at this time and place. Don’t miss the power, healing and miracle of this moment. Embrace it and allow it to take you to the better place that you can never ever seem to get yourself…

The Journey To Fulfillment!

There is a plan and purpose for this human experience that we call life. The question we should be asking ourselves is: “Am I allowing my life to come into alignment with the Spirit and the loving plan the Master Creator has for me?” Remember: There are no accidents, everything is intentional flowing from the Devine mind of love and light.

The goal is purpose, fulfillment, happiness and satisfaction for all that have a heartbeat. The key is making sure that my life, love and light align with the life, love and light of the Spirit of which I am a part and which is a part of me. what am I seeking, working for or trying to manifest? Have I allowed my ego to distract me and cause me to get caught up in the blame game or have I allowed myself to get so frustrated that I’m stuck somewhere back in my past sins, failures and disappointments?

The ego will try to persuade me that I am what I do, what I have or who I think people say I am and the danger of buying into this lie is that it causes me to get caught up in competition, which keeps me from collaboration in creation with my Creator, who has made me in His image. Every moment of everyday, I have a choice to make. I can give into the ego and choose the ordinary or I can align with LOVE and choose the supernatural.

My intention determines my inspiration, which provides my instruction that teaches me to overcome fear with love and illuminate darkness with light. God is always at work on my behalf, the question that really matters is: Will I join Him? I am blessed and my blessing grows when I share it with others, so take whatever you’ve been given and share it in such a way that it improves and makes life better for others and then be amazed at how your life aligns with the Spirit, who reveals your created purpose and offers you a journey to fulfillment…
