Get A Glimpse– No Ego In Sight!


I am a woman and  sometimes when I look in the mirror I notice a little too much of what’s wrong–all the flaws.  Sometimes I see too much fat, too many flaws in my skin, blah blah blah!  Sad, but true.   Most of the time, though,  I am just in a state of BEING and enjoying life and feeling good.  

Every now and then though, I focus in on what’s wrong.  We can all be way too physically focused. When we live in our heads, the ego rules the game.

The ego is always concerned with holding you down, keeping you stuck and safe. It likes to compare you with others and compare you with yourself when you were better. And, if you’re a young gorgeous thing, if puffs you up and helps you feel superior physically.

Either way, the ego is not a loving force, it is competitive and judgmental.

When we are living in the present moment and really living life, there are no thoughts about our physicality and how it isn’t measuring up anymore. The present moment is simple, feel good bliss. Lately I’ve been getting glimpses of an unconditional love for my physical self. It’s definitely different than what I’m accustomed to when I look in the mirror. The more time I spend with me, the more I’m starting to really be okay with me.

Not just okay, but really loving me!

Then my ego kicks in and chatters, “you’re only letting go of the physical thoughts of yourself because you’re losing them–you’re becoming unattractive and old-looking so why not learn to let it go”.  Thank you for sharing EGO–as Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “Edging God Out”.

That’s truly what the difference feels like to me, when I’m in the present moment bliss I am in God and God is in me.IMG_0508

When I’m in the comparing, critical mode, I am Edging God Out!  

The first step toward spending more time in GOD mode instead of EGO mode is simple– AWARENESS.  As soon as you are aware, you are on your way to having far more freedom than you have ever imagined.

So go ahead and get a Glimpse!  It all starts with a Glimpse!

I love life. Life teaches. I love nature. Nature teaches. I never want to lessen the lesson. Let's journey together on this trail called life! I write this blog mostly to get the chatter out of my head! I've never really promoted it but a few people read the articles and find inspiration. It really is therapeutic, writing is like having a place to process the stuff that floats around on a regular basis! In the words of John Muir, the naturalist, this is how I feel: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

  1. I hate to break the news to you honey, but you are BEAUTIFUL — you’re very fit, have glowing skin, thick shiny hair, on and on — so I don’t know what mirror you’re looking in. Maybe you need to get a new one. Just sayin’ . . .
