Episode 27, November 2022: Compassion for the Ego-Mind

As someone on a self-declared path of enlightenment and transcendence, I occasionally find myself struggling with a stubborn and sometimes out-of-control ego-mind. Even though I have many beautiful moments of bliss and peace, there are still times when my ego-mind gets the best of me, and that sense of peace vaporizes into a puff of quickly disappearing mist. Perhaps you’ve had experiences like this in your own life.

When this happens to me, I notice just how fearful and judgmental my ego-mind can be, and even though I don’t often voice my fears or judgments out loud, they still seem to be pretty intense in my mental awareness.

As I have learned in my deep studies of the psyche—particularly in the area of psychic shadow—the ego-mind is not actually “bad.” It just engages in dysfunctional and sometimes destructive beliefs and actions as a response to its own internal escalated levels of fear.

(Please watch the video for more!)

Remember, we all have ego-minds, and we are all subject to our own internal programming and conditioning. The more compassion you can bring to your own ego-mind, the greater your level of understanding and the more you reduce judgment. As you understand, you recognize that everyone else is operating according to their internal programming and conditioning, just like you. So, if you think about it, what is there to judge? Let compassion soften your heart.

If you find yourself challenged by an agitated ego-mind, try to keep yourself calm and open yourself to a compassionate conversation where you listen without judgment to what your ego-mind is trying to tell you. Learn from the exchange and bring unconditional love to a part of you that is just doing its best to keep you safe. The more you do this, the more you will see compassion growing everywhere in your life!
