The theme for the week is ego and, it’s primary source of function is to keep you divided from your true spiritual essence at a soul level. The conceit of egotism describes a person who acts to gain value for self serving motivation and instinctual desires while taking in an excessive amount of resources than that which he or she gives back to others. This may also be referred to as Service to Self.
Usually these are actions of taking in others energy, time and resources and is accompanied with very low ethical standards and displaying low moral character traits. Egotism may be fulfilled by exploiting the sympathy, trauma, emotion or ignorance of others, as well as utilizing coercive force, deception, manipulation, Mind Control and fraud. The egotist has an overwhelming sense of the centrality of the ‘Me’ operating in their personal qualities and personal identity. This is a person who can not be trusted as they will always manipulate the circumstances to Service of Self as their primary or only concern. Without developing Self Awareness and ego discipline (shedding the ego of its negative functioning), the untamed Negative Ego is exploited and further develops itself into serious spiritual pathologies which lead to Narcissism and Psychopathy.
Unfortunately, we often are confused by what we perceive incorrectly through our own need to be okay through self-justification. We formulate these distortions as Ego Defense Mechanisms because we have not learned how to free the mind through the use of Negative Ego tools for self-exploration and deeper self-inquiry. As we learn to free our mind and love ourselves unconditionally, we know that we are okay without needing to self-justify. When we are free of our own need for self-justification, (by increasing our inner self-approval and self-love, no matter where we find ourselves) then we do not need to justify others or justify ourselves. We are then freed to be capable of unconditionally loving others no matter what they may be choosing to do in that moment. It is what it is in this moment. One has no control over others nor what others may think about them.
To remain ignorant is a choice that many people make both consciously and unconsciously because they are afraid. When others understand this Trauma behavior in humanity and exploit this weakness of “ego fear” aggressively, the masses remain in Negative Ego fears, they will remain ignorant, therefore the masses are much easier to manipulate and Mind Control through chaos, fears, confusion and power conflicts. This is the time to leave fear and leave ignorance of the Negative Ego thought patterns. What do you need to do now to remove fear from controlling you? Searching for spiritual knowledge, that which one’s inner soul and heart resonate is that which will lead us away from darkness, ignorance and suffering.
Yet the biggest impediment to all humans on the quest for spiritual truth and knowledge is unresolved ego fear, religious mind control and emotional immaturity based on unhealed Trauma. If we are fear based and believe we are not worthy enough, we stunt our development thereby refusing access to deep self-knowledge. If we refuse to get out of the kiddie pool (the superficial levels of life interaction) mentally or emotionally, we remain too immature to grasp higher spiritual knowledge. This ignorance leaves most human beings dog paddling in circles through life, completely unable to make informed decisions about the future direction because they are being treated like farm animals by those who like to control (behaving in ego self). Self-awareness and spiritual knowledge ultimately reach the nexus point in one’s spiritual journey where the catalytic breakthrough beyond ignorance, beyond the Negative Ego is required to progress, evolve and be free.
The Predator Mind (that in which to serve the self) stays in its Superiority complex of the polarity while it projects inferiority on the targets of its submission and enslavement. To master the Negative Ego one will need to identify these inferior or superior thought forms and their archetypes and belief systems as they are acted upon, in order to shift and refocus negative thoughts back into neutral. This is the act of freeing your mind from being under manipulative Mind Control.
Do an inventory of personal thoughts and identify them as Inferior or Superior, or as love thoughts or fear thoughts. Make a choice right now which thoughts you want to own and those you want to discard. As a goal use a spiritual self-centering model to keep your mind balanced and stay in centered loving and neutral thoughts. How long can you stay there in the center? Make it a goal to improve your ability to stay within the essence and energy of the keywords that maintain your spiritual center. Bring yourself back to center with breath, and applying neutral association to circumstances when you fall out of inner balance.
Superior Thinking = Intolerance, Impatience, Arrogance, Manipulation, Attack, Anger, Judgmental thinking
Inferior Thinking = Worry, Low Self Love or Esteem, Jealousy, Guilt, Hurt, Fear, Attachment, Martrydom
When you drop into either an Inferior or Superior thought-form, immediately label it as Negative Ego and Dis-Identify with the thought as defining your value or the true Christ nature. Do not let negative thoughts control you. Refocus and affirm the correct thought pattern which lay between superior and inferior thinking. Shedding the ego is the in between superior and inferior thought patterns that are constructed through our negative ego qualities. Restructuring these negative and self sabotaging forces within leads to the true Christ nature within.
