Let’s look at ego, the storyteller within us that tells the stories of our lives. It also tells the tales of our fears, dreams, of our collective consciousness as beings, as a community, as a nation A healthy ego is the most important transit point between the heart and the mind. But it can also be a destructive force.
We have our own personal ego, we also have a collective ego. As a community or nation or religion or group, the collective ego makes up the story of what we are about. And in so many ways, these stories are ego dreams, based on emotional needs rather than heart, and they can quickly spin out of control. This ego creates a destructive force and undoes any good the person is trying to do because it’s all about the dreamer and not the dream. So many of our own desires and plans and ideas come about because the ego storyteller is activated. This is a wonderful thing – what would we do without ego to paint the picture of possibility for us? It’s not about going egoless. When ego, the storyteller, is in service to the heart, you get a whole other way of looking at life, the things you do. Because the heart is connected to the spirt. To not be guided by ego dreams means to connect your mind and your heart together, to feel inside yourself a sense of calling, to find that very still, small voice within you that is calling you open to something bigger than yourself.
