Beyond ego

Go beyond your ego, and there is nothing to fear. Go beyond your ego, and anything is possible.

The anger, the worry, the anxiety, the disappointment and conflict all come from seeing life in only the most superficial way. When you get beyond the need for drama, possessions and appearances, a vast realm of possibilities suddenly opens up.

Are the things you fight and fret over really that important to who you truly are? Or do they merely serve to prop up a limited ego-based sense of self?

Have you ever been totally absorbed in something so truly magnificent that you momentarily forgot yourself? Such moments are glimpses of how powerful it can be to go beyond your own ego.

Beyond your ego, you are not limited by what you need. Beyond your ego, you are free to fully become the best of who you are.

Listen to your ego, then softly let it go. The more you move beyond it, the more freedom you will know.

— Ralph Marston
