1. Ego vs. Spirit

The ego needs recognition. The spirit does not need to thank itself. The ego wants to be noticed. It needs stroking, pumping up and limelight. The ego needs to compete just to prove it is better. It senses danger around ever corner, difficulty in every challenge and trouble coming through everyone. The ego can never be enough, do enough or have enough. The goal of the ego is to be well liked and authorized because, for some reason, it does not feel qualified. The spirit is qualified by light. The Light of Truth, Peace, Joy and Love. It does not seek to condemn, condone or compromise what it is. It simply knows and is it. The spirit does what it can and moves on to something else. It does not ask for an reward or wait for rewards, it is just spirit being spirit. One of the difficult problems in the world is the competition of egos. They want to be noticed and applauded so they compete and dominate. When we truly understand that we are spiritual beings, we will no longer have a need for recognition. We will do what we can because we can do it by virtue of the Light of Spirit. Today I will go unnoticed. ~ Author Unknown

 

2. “Of course, freedom doesn’t mean that you let unkind things happen–it doesn’t mean passivity or masochism. If someone says he’s going to cut off your legs, run!”- Byron Katie

 

3. “Just as the sun painted on a wall will not give you light, reflections of your own mind, manifest as external objects, will never give you peace. You have to turn for light toward the source, not a painted picture of a sun or a candle.” Poonja

 

4. Look today and see if you have placed your faith in some vessel – some person, place or thing, instead of leaning on the Divine Presence within you. And then, mentally free your hostage. You don’t need to say anything or do anything – it’s an inner movement of Consciousness. Then, if someone offers you assistance or help, you know that standing in front of you is the Christ within you, cleverly disguised as just another kind human being. ~ Jacob Glass
