Every morning, as we get ready for our day, after a shower, while we brush our teeth, we inevitably encounter a mirror. What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see a spiritual being living in a human body? Do you see all of your physical flaws? Do you wish you were someone else—more handsome, prettier, having less gray hair, clearer skin, or a smaller nose? Our Ego Self is not too difficult to miss! It’s everywhere present. But, perhaps, what you think is your ego, really is just your human body.
We are Spirit Beings living in a human body, but we also have an ego, which differentiates each individual from everyone else in the world. This much of the definition isn’t a bad thing at all. To be authentic and an individual means following the deepest feelings of my soul, which often makes me APPEAR different than others.
However, egocentricity would seek to take that difference and separate you even farther from others; perhaps making you the only correct one, the only one wearing the right clothes, the one doing the work project as intended, or the perfect spouse acting correctly in a relationship. When you see your actions separating you, you begin to witness the ego in action in a negative way! What do you do when you experience your ego causing separation?
The ego’s job is to create separation. You are individualized and see yourself as separate because of the ego. In the eyes of Spirit, we are all one and have always been. So, to witness the ego creating egocentricity is to simply witness a part of you doing something it is lead to do. For example: We know that when young children are first given a toy, they don’t do anything unexpected. They love it, play with it, present it to everyone who comes in the room. But, if you put another child in the room and ask that same child to share the toy, watch what happens? The initial reaction is tears. Sharing is a learned behavior. A baby is mostly ego. It doesn’t learn to be a spiritual being and have compassion and share until it becomes more conscious. Right?
So, witnessing your own ego is like watching that baby cry after you force it to share with the another child. Your own golden spirit must act like the adult in this scenario and rise up above your ego self and direct your ego to do the right thing. In other words, you have at least two, if not three, voices in your head telling you what to do: 1.) definitely your ego 2.) your highest consciousness or spiritual self; and 3.) quite possibly your physical body also has a voice operating as hunger, thirst, aches and pains, etc.
Your job as a spiritually evolved human being is to be able to distinguish which voice is operating. The best way to do this is to imagine that your spiritual voice or your highest, most evolved consciousness is the parent or leader of the pack. But, just as a three dogs put together in the same room, each voice will vie for the leadership position, until both of the others acquiesce. Usually the one with the most aggressive behavior wins out. This should not be the case with your spiritual self.
You must know that you ARE a Spirit in an ego-driven, human body. When you recognize WHO you are, there is no need to vie for a position of authority. Just like our metaphor about the parent and child with the toy, if the parent acts like a parent, the child learns the lesson. If the baby gets away with the tantrum, the ego wins!
The body, your habits, your bad temper, and your desire to have more than your neighbor all become obvious ways that the ego attempts to take control or dominate your existence. Your only choice as a spiritually evolved individual is to take back control by doing the right thing—taking the spiritual action needed to take back control, which is inherently your deepest sense of motivation.
So, when you see your ego, understand that to see something, you must be separate from it. In that moment, you are, also, realizing that the one SEEING is the SPIRIT in you. The action is merely the ego. Seeing your ego means that your Spirit has its spiritual eyes open! At this point, you do have a choice: 1.) Take control of the ego and do the right thing; or 2.) give the toy back to the crying baby and never learn your spiritual lesson.
