now i am not into being someone's doormat, but my ego has gotten me into a lot of trouble over the years. on my spiritual journey, i came to the conclusion that my ego was in the way of my success. so i have been doing away with it.
it's called: a heartfelt apology.
you can be specific or general, but if you want to get out of old patterns of the ego, then you need to apologize for those patterns.
i have had one person ignore me. another person bite off my head. still others have accepted the apology and we have moved forward in our relationship.
interesting mix of reactions.
in the end, i realized the reactions were not based on my behavior of the past but how the person i apologized to perceived our past interactions. so in a way, how a person responds is more of a reflection of them, then it will ever be about me. interesting, isn't it?
so if you want to lose the programming of this dimension, density, artificial intelligence, then lose your ego. ego is nothing but a defensive mechanism to feel in control of the world. you are infinite consciousness... so why do you need an ego?
meditate, understand. release, apologize, let go.
at the end of the day, you will get out of your own way toward creating the live you have always wanted to live.
