Today let’s not let any ego thoughts direct our words or actions. (1 min 48 sec)
Ego thoughts are easy to recognize because they're always associated with fear, separation, and a distorted perception of reality.
Ego thoughts lead to judgment of oneself and others. It involves forming opinions, comparisons, and evaluations based on external appearances. This creates a sense of superiority or inferiority and reinforce the belief in separation.
The ego thrives on guilt and self-blame. It constantly reminds us of past mistakes and shortcomings, keeping us trapped in a cycle of self-condemnation. Guilt reinforces the illusion of separation and prevents us from experiencing forgiveness and self-acceptance.
Ego thoughts revolve around the idea of being special or unique, either in a positive or negative sense. It seeks to make us feel different or superior to others as a way to maintain a sense of individual identity. This specialness reinforces the belief in separation and hinders the recognition of our shared oneness.
