Ego vs Heart – which will win?

photo-10“What the inner voice says will not disappoint the hoping soul.” — Johann Friedrich von Schiller

The past few days have been challenging ones as my ego has registered that I’m serious in having chosen to live from my heart. Like everyone, I have some valid concerns regarding core elements in my life, and my ego is trying to attach to them to suck me back down the rabbit hole. I will not go easily!

As I pay attention to the feelings, thoughts and emotions that come over me, they are mostly very critical about me not doing enough, thoughts about what I should/could be doing instead, or feelings of poor, poor me… If you read my post titled “I’m addicted – to doing” you will notice that I (and I believe we all) have a problem with just being.

Before getting too caught up in my head, I decided to treat myself and go to an exhibit I’ve been meaning to go to for months. Afterwards I had a lovely lunch and returned home to take a nap. It all sounds great, right? But during the whole time my ego was throwing me curve balls, reminding me of my concerns and issues.

I now look out my window and as I view the NYC skyline, I see how quickly the light and the landscape changes with the setting sun. Like my problems and concerns, I know they too are fleeting. Let’s all take a deep breath, still our minds, and listen to that inner voice to remind us that our heart and soul knows what’s best for us.

    The trick is not to fight the ego.. that too is part of us and part of the wholeness 🙂
