To play the ego game is to devote your life energy to a game that cannot be won. Ego is a fool’s game that will lead you into failure by design.
Ego is out-of-control mind activity and perception. Constantly interpreting and reinterpreting, it’s arguments and strategies are never consistent. Never certain of the course or how to get there, the ego reacts with fear, confusion, paralysis, procrastination and inaction. Utterly clueless and useless, it still attempts to get what it wants through attack, image-projection, boastfulness and dishonesty.
Despite its inability to create anything of value, ego-driven doing always expects immediate results. When results are not immediate, others are blamed and the egoic person gives up.
Spirit is knowing. Anything created through spirit endures eternally. This includes not only creative pursuits, projects and business ventures—but also relationships. When a person awakens to spirit and lives from this place, all doing is directly connected to knowing.
Anything created in spirit is designed for the soul. On the level of the soul, we are eternally all the same. Spirit-based creating, therefore, is successful because it is embraced by everyone forever on the level of the soul.
Furthermore, spirit never gives up. Because it is love, it gives without conditions or expectations. Time is not real to spirit, so from here patience is limitless. Learn to live from spirit and you will never fail again. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
