Let us make friends with that fearful child, invite it into a balanced inner world, where healthy self care includes quiet time, meditation, prayer and other practices. Let your ego be porous, so that the light of awareness, compassion and cooperation can shine through. Meditation helps us to become the Observer of our thoughts oh, so we don't over identify with our thoughts and emotions. In the end, maybe it is the ego that seeks enlightenment! The higher self already knows the truth. Through the choices we make on a moment-to-moment basis a healthy ego can help us develop our personality and even guide us on our evolutionary path. So let's not demonize the ego, since that might only strengthen its resistance. Instead, let us treat it with compassion and clear awareness of healthy boundaries. What we resist persists; what we embrace from an observer's perspective can heal. Namaste!
