Free from the grip of ego

There is much more to life than merely serving your ego. Those things that seem like failures to the ego, are pure opportunities for raising your awareness to higher, more fulfilling levels.

Experiences your ego would never allow will connect you to what you sincerely desire. Feelings, thoughts and actions that go beyond yourself show you who you truly are.

Anxiety, fear, worry and doubt are all devices that your ego uses to hold you back. Stop being a slave to ego, and you are free to live without limits.

By appealing to your ego and cooperating with it, others are able to control your life. Yet when you let go of your ego’s concerns, you can freely live to fulfill your own true purposes.

Why would you wish to be a slave when you can choose to be the master of your destiny? Why would you let ego hold you back when there are so many great things you can accomplish?

The best thing you can do for yourself is to live your life beyond yourself. Let go of your ego’s incessant pleading, and discover a whole new wonderful world.
