I ask myself this question often. Is it a shadow that hides within trying to prohibit us from touching grace and light? It makes me wonder, if the ego is your consciousness of your own identity, or the conscious mind, what if we have misinterpreted ourselves? Today with so much spiritual evolvement what is often taught as the means to liberation is not ego death, but self-acceptance, acceptance of every aspect of ourselves, including our egos.
The words self acceptance therefore does not make sense to me. The realization then is that there is nothing separate-from “All That Is“, from “God,” or from Essence. I am trying to let go of control it is only a false illusion.. When this struggle ends the means to that end will be more awareness.
Ego Still Visits
I saw shadows of Ego visiting
I no longer care for you
Demanding, insulting you tortured me
You are wanton in your desires
Be silent, bring me peace
I will watch you pass over into insignificance.
