⤅ I’ve been watching this happen in my life for awhile now... I know I used to think if I was overly confident, knowing or super sure of my self - perhaps even cocky & arrogant - that is what an inflated ego looks like. That’s what egocentric means. That’s what an ego maniac is 😂 me! Lol! ⠀⠀ But what has been misconceived is the ego inflates when we shrink ourselves down too. When I feel I am not worthy, I am not enough, I creat unnecessary guilt & shame, when I tear myself down with my thoughts & my words. When I don’t believe in myself... ⠀⠀ This is also ego mania & egocentric. The ego is creating an identity. And these identities - these stories (often false) we create & believe become identity = our ego. ⠀⠀ So notice in which way you allow your ego to inflate & rear its head in unhelpful ways & simply observe 🧘🏻♀️ ⠀⠀ This isn’t right or wrong - it just is 🕉 & maybe there’s another way it is, it can be 🙏🏼 ⠀⠀ In Love ღ Light + Shadow 🌗 ॐ Namaste . . . . .
