My Glorious Ego~

If I hear one more new age guru tell me to kill my ego, I am going to scream so loud, California will fall into the ocean due to the sheer vibration of it!!

  1. a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance.
    “a boost to my ego”
    synonyms: self-esteem, self-importance, self-worth, self-respect, self-conceit, self-image, self-confidence;

    amour propre
    “he needed a boost to his ego”
    • Psychoanalysis
      the part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity.
    • Philosophy
      (in metaphysics) a conscious thinking subject.

Who in the hell started the movement to suppress the internal mediator between  our conscious reality, and the unseen realm of our hidden consciousness?

No seriously, who’s bright idea was that?!

Anyone with the most scant ability to think critically, can see there are valuable aspects of the ego just by reading the agreed upon definition. Addressing an ego out of balance is one thing, but crucifying that which carried me through the darkest periods of my life is another; entirely! While I certainly think we need to keep our egos from running rough shod over another sweet spirit, preaching we should ditch it all together, is waaaay out of balance in my egotistical opinion.

Hehe.

I have a healthy respect, and admiration for my glorious ego. It was my ego who gave me the courage to face another day, when I was metaphorically in the ditch and bleeding out. It was my ego who got me out of bed, and raised my head enough to get through the darkest days of my life. It was my ego, who told me I had value, when the rest of the world had none, for a rarefied thinker such as myself. It was my ego who pulled me through depression, gave me confidence when I really didn’t have any, and told me I was as good as anyone else, even when I did not feel that way. I am profoundly grateful for this incredible mediator between me, and my higher self. between me and the things buried within me. Between me, and my divinity. Without a healthy ego, I would be incredibly unhealthy, and still bleeding in a ditch somewhere, unable to face another day upright, and taking nourishment.

It truly jangles my nerves when folks ask me to cast her aside, even for a moment! It isn’t like she is in my face every second of the day, anyway.  Nor does she go around lording her self importance in an effort to belittle others.  I have zero interest in losing myself in the ALL right now. I am here to experience my individuality, and to express it through my one of a kind, unduplicated personality! Oneness is my/our natural, and eternal state apart from the body, and I am here to see what I AM separately but in context of the whole, or I would not be here at all. None of us would be. It is almost as if, folks have forgotten this. I get it, we all miss that divine state in which we are part of something bigger than ourselves, but that is our base, and we WILL return to it, once we are done doing Earth stuff. So it seems ridiculous to me, to actively seek it while we are here to experience something else. It seems to me, we should keep our egos in check, not kill them.

I have actually had an independent experience of the ALL from literally out of no where, while I was freaking driving no less. So I know intimately what it is that I AM, outside of this temporary meat suit. 

Oh, and PS, it’s AWEsome!

And guess what boys and girls, I did not lose my sense of self, even as I was completely one with the total of what we all are. I am not sure if anyone will understand this, but it is -how it is.

Be that as it may, it’s also an unsustainable state of being while we are occupying a body.  I mean, maybe folks need to be reminded of who, and what they are, so that is why they seek such an experience in meditation, and hallucinogenics? But I am not one of them. I know I am something more that skin and bones. I know I am a monadic soul full of divine sunshine and spirited moxie. I have always known, even when I had no way to articulate it to even myself, much less others.

I think we all do at some level.

Or we certainly could, if we would but listen to our EGOs once in awhile!! I mean, it IS in direct communication with ALL levels of our consciousness, after all!!

HA!

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…

ROOOOOOOOAR!!

 

Leadership Styles~

The over simplification and false expectations, of what it means to be a leader, is disheartening for me. I feel terrible for world leaders, in our current cyber-bully society. The public’s expectations are outrageous. It is straight up childlike, to have an expectation of perfection, from any human, in any role.

PERIOD.

But the public readily expects this regardless. It is so beyond rational, I thought I would do a quick memo on the topic.

This is how I see it…

There are as many leadership styles, as there are leaders. No two humans have exactly the same ‘flair’. We have all been led by someone. From our parents, to our teachers, professors, and on to our siblings we look up to, and the many bosses we have worked with. We all have been exposed to a variety of ways, in which others lead those in their care. You have likely had both wonderful and wacky folks lead you. These people are your educators. Pay attention to the things you both admire and are angered by.

The trick is, to develop your own unique style, by watching those who both have maddened and mesmerized us, with theirs. Those who glean from many “guru’s’, have a broader and more enriched knowledge base, in which to lead others themselves.

Additionally, it is a never ending process of development, for those who seek and hold masterships in leadership. All those who lead, are a work in progress, no less than we are. But they also have access to a vantage point, we do not. So go easy on folks, extend some mercy. Watch with an intention to learn, not label.

Any expectation of perfection you have for your current leaders, will be expected of you someday. That is why a crown is seated with thorns. Trust me when I say, it’s preferable that we promote consistency in leadership, over echoing criticisms of our leaders miscalculations.

As you follow those ahead of you in anything you do, look for and look to be, a leader who gets it right, most of the time. Rather than crucifying and ruminating over those, who will never perform perfectly for us, anyway. It impedes our progress, when we stop moving forward and allow the missteps of others, to dictate our own dance.

In so doing, we will find far more amazing leadership attributes to incorporate into our own styles, than we will, by demanding perfection, in order for us to learn from others.

Remember every leader on this planet, was first a follower. And most continue to look to other leaders for positive inspiration, mentorship and guidance. Those who are preoccupied with taking the inventory of others, just to criticize them, are stuck in the mindset of a follower. Just because they attract people that want to throw in with them, and follow after their negativity, does not a leader make.

ALL things serve those, who watch with objectivity. An exceptional leadership style includes a willingness to sit in observation, not condemnation. They know that everything they witness, be it positive or negative, edifies ~

Oh Solomon…

Sorrow and grief are but temporary afflictions. Knowledge moves folks past emotions and into rational resolve and positive progression~

The truly wise know:

•Sorrow drives solutions

•Grief invites growth

•Knowledge supports change

That being said, some of the most secretly guarded knowledge would be quite disturbing, to those not properly prepared to recieve it~
