Ego or Essence?

Do you ever question your thoughts!  Does your egoic mind take over your thoughts?

Step into the NOW and experience your true Essence.

But what is our true Essence?  It’s the real thing.  It’s who we really and truly are.  Its’ the divine Self that is you, me, us.

However, because we are programmed to pay attention to our thoughts, we fail to notice our real Essence or the actual now of NOW.

How would it feel to drop out of the “mental” world and into the NOW to experience peace, calm, joy and the richness of  life … the Essence of our own true selves?

Egoic thoughts like “I’m not good enough,” or “I’ll never have what I want” …. it’s the false self speaking, those voices in the head …. all driven by the ego.

Let go of the conditional thoughts, the shoulds, the beliefs and the opinions that other have bestowed on us, the cultural conditioning about life.

Step into your true Essence – that is who you truly are.

Be aware of your thoughts.  Ask yourself:  Is it true?  Is it useful?  How does it make me feel? The mind isn’t interested in the present moment.  It loves the past and future.  Notice this!

Did you ever notice how your mind wanders into the past and future?  Continually!  Use your Essence to notice this path of the mind.  Your Essence is content to notice the arising moment and respond to it without thoughts.

What is your mind thinking of right now? Are you aware of your surroundings?  Feelings?  Sensations? Urges?  Insights?

Let go of the struggle and allow your true Essence to step forth and shine.

Free yourself from the bondage of the egoic mind.  Let’s have more present moments in the NOW and less crappy thoughts!  Starting now!

About the photo:  The beautiful Amaryllis is a stunning flower associated with the holidays.  It symbolizes pride, determination and radiant beauty …. the kind that emanates from the inner source and flowers outward …. much like the the Essence of our own beauty.
