Chuck’s Place: Ego Without Ego

Little ego over big Ego…

With no ego whatsoever we would simply be pure energy, without a cohesive identity.

Ego is the stamp of our individual personality that marks our unique journey in this life.

Because of ego’s access to awareness, it knows it is a being who must someday die as a human being. How obvious the natural reaction to this fact being ego’s rush to embrace its importance and value, while in this life. This is how ego acquires its negative connotation as ego preoccupied with Ego.

Primary narcissism, Freud’s postulate that ego’s first obsession is with its own self, is ego’s enduring challenge to transcend in this life. For ego to pass through this developmental stage and take in a world greater than itself is a formidable task. Yet, only from this greater perspective can ego grasp the true interconnected reality of the world and position itself appropriately to this broader Self.

Decision making is an ego function. We are beings who must take responsibility for our decisions. It has been my experience that only decisions which align with the truth of Spirit come to manifestation. Actually, I have been aligning with this intent my entire life. Even when the ego has reasonably convinced me of the rightness of an action, it gains no traction in the field of manifestation if it is truly not aligned with Spirit.

“Let go and let God” does not absolve us from actively tracking the design of Spirit and assuming personal responsibility for right action. Right action is ego acting without Ego; ego discerning the synchronicities, the language of Spirit, and acting in consort with the intent of these messages.

Our world is currently on a dramatic pregnant pause. Nature is truly in charge now, though ego clearly has its necessary role. Decisions must be made both by world leaders as well as by individuals. Every individual has the personal responsibility to wash their own hands and face the truth of their own potential contagion.

World leaders are challenged to rise above the local fixation of self-importance and address the true needs of the whole planet. Nature is grooming the ego to take the next developmental step beyond primary narcissism: ego without Ego.

A vast sum of human energy is being stockpiled now, like the current glut of oil, usually spent motorizing the world. This undeployed energy is the currency of our energetic potential. The world’s forced pause is asking ego to ponder its truths.

With our habitual daily behaviors greatly checked, our energetic reserves are growing. For shamans it is energy, and energy alone, that is the key to discovering our energetic potential. Attention withdrawn from a world of objects stirs kundalini, the energy of outer attachment, to awaken to its inner potential.

Take full advantage of this time of solitariness to intend greater access to your fuller energetic potential. Intend your energy body to strengthen its dreaming attention to explore infinity with awareness.

Intend, in dreaming, to travel the world in an instant, flying and discovering in the energy body. Intend the greater good in all worlds, especially the solid world we live in, currently on pregnant pause.

In the outer world of energy consumption, reliance upon fossil fuels is far more of a threat to world survival than a virus. Is our world ego ready to align itself with this truth? What more will the Spirit of Nature need to do to have us act in alignment with this truth?

Pointless to point fingers. Always return to the hologram of self. Take it as a valid hypothesis that those whom you hate the most are mirroring the subterfuge of your own ego’s struggle with Spirit’s intent.

Own your own shadow and reckon with it. It’s not about being good or bad; we all are both, and all must live both. No solace or reconciliation to be found in one-sidedness.

Perfection is incomplete wholeness. Perfection is ego with Ego. Ego in its humbleness can laugh at its own imperfections. Ego that can love can be in full acceptance of everything, yet intend to be impeccable. To be impeccable is to track the designs of Spirit as the overarching intent of a mature ego, an ego without Ego.

Embrace this amazing opportunity we are all being gifted by nature at this time, for ego, without Ego, to discover and journey with Spirit as we manifest a brave new world.

Humbly,

Chuck

You may be missing all the signs you’ve been asking for, all the answers you seek, unable to read the words of spirit, the language of the Universe. It does not speak in your native tongue, nor in any other human language, but in sign language, using symbols and objects, sound and synchronicity. Look again, perhaps you’ve gotten the answers to your questions, without noticing. When you ask for help, with true need and intent, you will receive. That is certain. But the method of delivery is left up to the whims of spirit!

Sending you love,

Think for yourself. Clear your mind of its incessant chatter that tells you this and that and listen to your heart for a new and different perspective. Communicate heart-to-heart with the stars for new words of wisdom, to the moon for knowledge, to the universe for direction. Feel your feet upon the ground and know that you exist in body as much as in spirit and yet let your spirit do your thinking now, for the spirit sees things you cannot imagine. With heart-centeredness let each day unfold in a new way now. Sometimes all it takes is a shift in a new direction, but shore that up with a new way of thinking too. Let the heart speak.

Sending you love,

You can’t change how life unfolds, but you can change how you approach it, the attitude you take, what you decide to accept and what you decide to reject. You have more control than you think. Some control is detrimental to you and your journey, doing more harm than good, but some control is beneficial and actually sets you off on the right path. A path of heart requires constant attention and, yes, a certain amount of control to stay in stable alignment with spirit. Accept the things that help you and further your journey, reject that which hinders and harms. Do so with loving kindness for yourself, for your past, present, and future selves, for all of that is who you are and who you have the potential to be, a being of wholeness, every part of you acceptable and loved, even that which no longer serves your greater good.

Sending you love,

Take care of the body for it is the only one you get. The spirit is eternal but it too needs care, for it is so often neglected and forgotten, as life in the body dominates. Let the body have its needs in order to survive and thrive, but don’t forget to keep the spirit alive as well, giving it as much attention as the body, keeping it present and active in your life. It needs care and nurturing too, that invisible you that only wants to be known and trusted, for it has treasures to give and wisdom to impart from its eternal home. Ask your spirit to guide you. Learn to trust it, for it holds knowledge for your body as well as your soul. Just ask.

Sending you love,
