Why do you fret over that which you cannot control? What is it about your ego that it feels that it must control all facets of life? Why can it not see that it isn’t all that? Actually, it’s quite simple. Without the ego’s favorite tool of ‘worry’ it cannot create the drama of life in which it pats itself on the back for ‘coming to the rescue’, so to speak. It constantly needs to justify its own existence and validate its worth to your inner spirit.
When you are aligned with your inner spirit you understand what it does andits ongoing folly. You allow it to ‘suggest’ certain courses of action when it is necessary but you temper its ‘judgment’ with the guidance from the Spirit of God. You allow your Divine essence to lead while the ego follows. It surely will not like this arrangement and will do everything in its limited power to convince you that it has ‘superior’ knowledge about all of life.
To attain Divine wisdom and flow within Divine order you must dismiss this ‘superior’ knowledge while placating the ego’s yearning for masterful control, domination and manipulation with its ‘perceived’ power. How do you do this? You acknowledge the value of your ego and its ‘judgments’ while ‘discerning’ from the Divine view of the Spirit of God. Acknowledge the suggestions of the ego but always follow
Your ego has a job to do; ensure your survival at all costs. Allow it to do its job but always put it in its place by moving toward what is best for all while moving away from what is best for just you. The balance you strike here is paramount to the unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order. Do what is necessary to express your inner divinity into your environment in order to ensure the expression of Divine love to all. Don’t allow the ego’s favorite tool of ‘worry’ to influence your allowing of Divine guidance!
Suppressing your ego too much stifles your creativity and accentuating it too much stifles your productivity. Use your ego as a craftsperson uses a tool to fine tune a co-creation. Mold and shape the raw materials of life into a co-creation that reflects the beauty of the love that was put into its co-creation. Balance and order are the keys to co-creating beauty in your life. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
