I have to take the time to ask a question of my heart and as I ask the question I know the answer. Many people especially it seems younger people have adopted this philosophy of you are a perfect you. Or the you are perfect the way you are.
My stepson called about a family issue to comfort me and stroke me because he sensed I was beating myself up over recent events in my life. He expressed all the good that he had witnessed lived and learned in my presence. I agree with much of what he had to say. I did however express that there was room for improvement and I recognized a character flaw or two that I passed on to my children and I need to do the soul work to fix them.
The exploration of ones depths to find and repair a flaw is not the same thing as a pity party or a self-defeating ego trip. It is having the courage to find the light of truth in your heart recognizing that truth and working on converting the truth into positive change within. The attitude and purpose set the loving tone taking the negative and finding the source then loving it and thanking it.
I have been battling my ego with love and trying to win a war in which I may be wrong. I have been reading and researching learning from the masters. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of many that have opened my eyes in a new way asking me to find my truth. His thoughts on ego and soul were that we needed to find balance. A different approach may be required and in my heart the thought has weight. Ego free would mean that you in some ways may be a sitting duck, or would it?
I would like to thank you for your allowing me to share my thoughts and feelings with you. I hope some at least got a smile and perhaps a challenge question. Are you a perfect you? I believe that sugar coating is harmful to both our soul and ego. The truth is far more rewarding and educational providing knowledge leading to wisdom. I for one know that I appreciate the opportunity to learn and make change positive. Work on the problem and fix it rather than sweep it under the rug till the rug is as tall as you. The answer is deep within and the light of love will guide you. I am grateful to my lord and his grace allowing me the many gifts of many experiences in life.
Thank you, I hope we can all share a smile share some love and make our world a better place for all that share it. Please be the change positive!
