Love: A Path to Creating a New Reality

 Dignity is about self-worth. It is about the sense of integrity and a core value system that is never to be compromised under any circumstances. On the other hand, ego is about projecting an image to the world and even to yourself that is based on mind-made stories of who you are.

Creating a new reality requires love. Love for a better experience, a more meaningful existence. It is about realizing that you can imagine a better future, a better reality, a better outcome for yourself. And if you can imagine better, you can have better. It requires deep self-love to know that you deserve better, you can do better, and a better life is possible for you no matter what your current reality looks like and what others make you believe about yourself and your abilities.

Go for what you love. What you love is more important to you than your ego’s death. Your ego gets irritated against what your heart desires. Your ego cannot stand the love of your heart. Is it your pride, your sense of who you “think” you are, looking foolish to others? Your ego’s irritation, which it cannot let go of, causes pain, suffering. But this is your sign that you are on the right path. Take a deep breath with me now, my love. Let fresh air in, the divine life force to hold your body in safety, release fear, judgments, need for approval, safety, the need to look good in the eyes of others. Let it all go. Repeat: I am safe, I am protected. It is safe to follow my heart’s desires. I am loved. I am divine. I have joy within, safety within, power within, abundance within. Don't worry about the outcome, your job is internal, put your ego aside and step into your new, less egoic reality. It is safe to put your ego aside. You don’t need approvals, you don’t need other people’s opinions or acceptance. You don’t worry about what will happen, you focus on your internal world and clean it off worries, fears, lacks, and pains. Trust is your best friend. Trust in the universe. All you can do is to do your best. Do your best.

Do the best you can, put your ego aside, follow your heart, and create and follow a practical approach to achieve your deepest desires. Practical ego-free plans. These are the keywords: practical and ego-free. Let the rest go, let the control of the outcome and worries go. Do your best, my love. That’s all you need to do. As long as your ego does not keep you chained, you are on the right path. Trust!

Today's lesson is profound, my love. I recommend reading the above text at least one more time today. Three times or more if you can. I love you.

Ego: Understanding Its Role as a Barrier to Personal Growth

The ego, often referred to as the sense of self or identity, can be both a protective mechanism and a significant obstacle to personal growth. It is the part of our psyche that seeks validation, recognition, and control. While it serves to maintain a sense of individuality and security, it can also lead to rigid thinking, fear of failure, and resistance to change. The ego tends to prioritize self-image and the need to feel superior or validated, often at the expense of genuine growth and fulfillment. When driven by the ego, individuals may resist feedback, cling to limiting beliefs, and struggle to embrace vulnerability or uncertainty. This fixation on preserving a certain self-image can hinder introspection, empathy, and the willingness to explore new perspectives or experiences, ultimately impeding the journey toward self-awareness and authentic fulfillment.

What steps can I take to deepen my self-love and worth, allowing me to trust in my abilities and the universe, and to relinquish the need for external validation or approval?

Dignity Versus Ego: How to Know When to Accept Versus Moving On

The ego is fragile; it desires to shield itself, projecting an image to the world. Its primary motive is self-protection, fearing extinction if left exposed. This truth about the ego is undeniable—it will go to great lengths to safeguard itself, often at the expense of others or even oneself. Indeed, love, this is the nature of the mind-made self, devoid of a profound understanding of the true self—a self born of love. Your heart, my love, reveals the authentic you, transcending the fabricated narratives of victimhood, narcissism, or excessive giving. Life's experiences shape egoic tendencies, constructing stories of injustice or victimhood, forming our personalities unless we actively pursue healing. Your ego, my love, is but a collection of fabricated tales, not your true essence. These experiences serve as lessons, awakening us to our power and dignity, rather than molding our egos. True life awaits beyond the ego's facade.

But how do we discern between ego-driven fears and genuine dignity when making decisions? The ego seeks to preserve the image we've cultivated, fearing vulnerability and rejection. Ask yourself if fear motivates this self-protection—fear of judgment, rejection, or abandonment for revealing vulnerability. Despite vulnerability, stand firm in your power, refusing to sacrifice dignity to fulfill your needs. How, then, do you navigate vulnerability authentically without succumbing to victimhood or abuse to meet your needs? How do you maintain dignity and self-worth?

Let's define dignity:

According to the dictionary, dignity is the quality or state of being worthy of honor or respect. It encompasses self-respect, integrity, and moral worthiness. From a spiritual perspective, dignity transcends societal recognition, acknowledging the divine essence within oneself and others. Spiritual dignity involves treating oneself and others with compassion, recognizing the inherent worthiness of all life. Cultivating dignity aligns actions with principles of love, fostering a deeper connection with the divine and living in harmony with spiritual principles. Dignity entails loving oneself, extending love to the world through self-love. Stand in your power, never intending harm, wishing love and compassion for others, and refusing disrespect. Be vulnerable, authentic, but discerning—only accept help that honors your dignity. Protect your self-worth with all your strength, for it is the divine within you. Keep it safe, keep it protected.

Dignity and Ego: Understanding Their Influence

Dignity and ego can both be powerful motivators, but they push us in very different directions. Dignity is about self-respect and acting with integrity. It fuels our desire to live according to our values and principles, even when it's challenging. When our dignity is on the line, we might feel hesitant about something that seems wrong or disrespectful. Maybe it compromises our morals or feels like a betrayal of who we are. Dignity also makes us wary of being taken advantage of. Ego, on the other hand, is driven by a need to feel superior and in control. It can be a fragile thing, easily bruised by failure or the perception of looking bad. When our ego is in the driver's seat, we might shy away from opportunities that seem daunting because of a fear of failure or appearing incompetent. We might also become fixated on being right or winning arguments, even at the expense of connection or learning.
