Ego and Spirit look the same, but are not the same – Message Day 49

Ego and Spirit look the same, but are not the same.

How can you spot an ego? Ego can be revealed when you have a superiority complex. 

The one filled with ego speaks much about themselves but lacks integrity. The more intellectual you are, the more subtle your ego will be.

A person who doesn’t have much intelligence makes their ego easy to spot, and that ego is innocent. We often see this in teens and people who are not exposed to the competitive world. For example, some tribes or deep rural villages.

The innocent ego is not a problem, because once they gain true understanding and wisdom, they come out of their ignorance and become grounded and aligned.

The most alarming type of ego is subtle. You know how to smile and how to be gentle. You become a skilled communicator, your charisma is attractive, and you are able to control everything smoothly.

 Behind the mask of a good face; you will lose sight of your ego, a subtle ego, which can lead to narcissism. 

So, egoistic people are productive but without integrity.

Another essence of your being is Spirit, which is the calling of your existence and soul.

You never mind what the world thinks about you, and you never give up or are afraid to speak your truth straightforwardly. Usually, when you are straightforward and don’t mind judgments, you may first question if you are being driven by your ego or spirit. 

That’s why ego and spirit look the same but are not the same. 

People who are driven by their spirit, are produced with integrity. 

So, your integrity is the measurement between your Ego and Spirit. 

When you are with the spirit, you always challenge your fears and insecurities, as well you challenge your culture and community. People in your community frequently misunderstand you as arrogant and egoistic because you aren’t afraid to break the rules if they don’t make sense to you. If something makes sense, you are always bound by it. 

The ego is not one particular emotion or behavior; it is a spectrum that has many colours and shades. It’s hard to spot someone’s ego when you don’t know how the spirit really works. 

Until you master your ego, you will misunderstand someone’s spirit as their ego. 

When you build an opinion based on your bias or understanding, this can lead to huge misconceptions and conflicts. So, always be wise and never label anyone or even yourself.

Simply be an observer without opinions or conclusions. Be present from moment to moment.

Because life and its happenings are always bigger than you.

Right and wrong, bad and good, are interchangeable. 

Have fresh and wise perspectives towards religions, political and government systems, and your friends and family circle. 

The easiest thing is to judge someone or yourself without a proper evaluation beyond bias. 

True education is the ability to evaluate the realities and be practical in decision-making and leading yourself/team/system. 

As a result, having a reality-based evaluation required a great deal of observation and research, which is why you should never judge yourself or anyone else so quickly.

If you are judgmental, that is nothing but an Ego. 

There is nothing wrong with egoistic people. Their ego harms and disturbs them more than you.

When you spot ego in someone’s behaviour without labeling or judging them; send your blessings and compassion toward them.

You are then more easily able to filter your ego.

When you get disturbed by someone’s ego, you are dealing with your own ego. 

This means it’s a good opportunity for you to work with your ego. 

There is a wise saying: Before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean. 

There’s a reason everyone wears clothes and tries to live a dignified life. 

There is always some percentage of ego in everyone.

Animals don’t have any ego; that’s why animals don’t need to wear clothes.

When you became identified with your body and mind, as well as when you attempted to demonstrate your best conditions to others, you developed an ego.

The whole world of trading is ego-driven, The fashion industry and the banking system are all ego-driven. They all become part of the world’s competition and are closely associated with socio-economic grades, levels, and class systems. 

Family pride, cultural pride, patriotism, everything has some level of ego.

When you talk proudly about your ancestors, your country, or your family, maybe there is some ego content along with gratitude and self-respect.

You think your language, religion, or beliefs are better than anyone else’s; this also reflects some of your ego.

So, ego is hugely mixed in business, culture, the arts, politics, government systems, and religions. It’s everywhere.

The Art of Working with Your Own Ego:

  • First, be honest with yourself and acknowledge that you have an ego. 
  • Take off the “mask” and don’t try to pretend like you aren’t wearing one.
  • You should not have an ego because of your religious practices.
  • Understand that ego is not a bad thing, but it has limits. If you really respect your existence, it’s time to come out of your ego.
  • When others trigger you, that is the best opportunity for you to work with your ego.
  • Have an open mind to explore wisdom. The root cause of Ego is the absence of your wisdom. 
  • Don’t try to impose your opinion on others. Naturally, you will inspire others. Any of your routines, religions, or concepts—what is right and what is wrong—are purely your opinion.
  • exploring your spirit is greater than being a nice person and pleasing others. While trying to be a nice person, don’t miss exploring your spirit. 
  • Being honest with yourself is the best compliment. The more honest you are with yourself, the less egoistic you are.

So, there is a thin line between ego and spirit; Never confuse yourself while you are going through it.
