In this article, we are going to look at the spiritual ego. We all have a choice to make our interactions either positive or negative with each other. This is a fact. What is impossible to control is the reactions other people give us when we speak out and ask for something not to happen again. This is not under our control at all, and can lead to some interesting experiences.
I will keep this a little vague as it is a real experience of mine, involving real people. And I do not want to hurt or harm any of them. But what I saw was very important for all of us embarking on the journey of spiritual awakening.
To cut a long story short, I have an old friend who started doing some work with me. One of his/her friends started to get involved. Something happened in the background and this newcomer questioned the validity of my old friends authenticity. Being authentic is everything to me, so I was angry because I thought I had made a good choice with my old friend.
I brought up the subject with my old friend, and there was a problem happening with he/she in the background. I completely understood and realised why he/she had kept something from me, because he/she was embarrassed.
Forgiveness and the spiritual ego
Immediately I forgave he/she and said no harm done. I also said, please do not be embarrassed about anything you share with me in the future. This incident has not changed our relationship at all. In fact, it has strengthened it.
After some time had passed, I was contacted by the newcomer who is the friend of the old friend recently and I received the email in good faith. I made it very clear that I will not tolerate anything that you do that tries to undermine my old friend, or put you between us. This did not go down very well at all.
Watch Your Spiritual Ego
I was told to watch my spiritual ego because I am a man of peace and love, so she said. When I read these words, I actually felt nothing about these accusations actually resonating with me, as I feel I do not have a spiritual ego, and I do live with love and peace.
I was having a conversation earlier in the day where I was explaining about my Saturday afternoon experience of preparing vegetables for Autumn harvest and my partner was knitting hats for the elderly for winter warmth, with the beautiful sun beaming down from a bright blue sky and the birds singing happily.
Spiritual Ego And Spiritual Life – What Is The Difference?
At that point I realised there is no place I would rather be right now. One of the next door neighbours were having a blazing row, and the other neighbours seem to have been stuck in doors for weeks not happy with us complaining about the enormous construction at the end of the garden. I felt free from all of these disputes for those moments. It was beautiful.
I was living with love and peace at that moment, and felt very humble and also privileged to have the knowledge to grow my own healthy food, have a beautiful space where we were planning to relax in and enjoy the peaceful ambiance later that day.
What Is Your Spiritual Ego?
Having a spiritual ego is where you believe you are better than someone else because you may have more senses tuned in because you are sensitive to the spiritual world. I have seen gurus from India who blatantly say they are an incarnation of God. Just one look at the pictures of them and you see that they are not. They are connected with their super soul, which is connected to the creator. But they are definitely not the all loving, all being creator.
I do meet many people doing what I do, and that is a real blessing. But there are times when you do meet people who have a spiritual ego, and I feel that is another trap we have to see, recognise, and let go of when these feelings well up inside of us. I feel we are all just guiding each other home. Also, I find other peoples talents interesting, and love it when they show great humility with them. People who are boastful and show offs are not impressive at all.
Spiritual Ego Is A Place Of Confusion
I feel we have all come here to play a part. Whether you are a facilitator, a healer, a visionary, a philosopher, a husband, wife, parent etc. This is what you have come here to do. And when you get to understand these roles on a deeper level, you will be here to fulfill another role next time around, unless you decide to break the reincarnation loop of this earth.
Being here and recognising you have something to do is important. And you need your ego and sense of self worth to drive you into that position. And that is it as far as my understanding of this goes. Your ego is rather like your mind. It is a fantastic tool, but a lousy master. It is like the wise Jew saying ‘Never let the big guy be in charge’ in the box set Peaky Blinders. Never let your ego be in charge.
And one more thing that is of note here. When you do train deeply as I have done with my Ki Gong practice, you realise your Dahn Jons are simply energy centres that we all have and we all share energy from, whether we know it or not.
And when you get to such a level with your training, you realise we are all sharing these same energies with a different viewpoint. That fills me with great humility because I want to hear about your experience of life when I meet you. Now what you have achieved and how amazing you are. I already know how amazing you are. Just being human gives you that. I want to know what have you done to make this world a better place with the amazing insight you have access to.
How To Stop Your Spiritual Ego Taking Over
It is really possible to get lost in the esoteric world. And this can cause all sorts of problems, including giving us a spiritual ego. It does not actually exist and we create it. Grounding yourself back into the material realm will really help with this.
Knowing All About Yourself
When you learn about yourself and take the journey inside, you will learn that we are here because we are amazing. You have the ability to be connected to the higher frequencies of this reality. But also to be connected to the earth energies, and also to be connected to the human energies. When you learn this and you will be balanced.
Learn where the knowledge came from
We all have connection to the higher frequencies, or heavenly realms as human beings. We must realise that this energy comes through us. When we start to believe that this is us, then we are connecting to that energy and associating it as us.
It is rather like saying we are our brain as a human being. It is something we use, and utilise un our life. But it is not us. We must make this distinction to avoid the issues of have a spiritual ego.
What If I Need Help With My Spiritual Ego
I have created the Dream Method for Highly Sensitive People, and this will help if you are out of balance. If you are too connected to your higher energies, the Dream Method will bring you back into balance and enable you to know yourself incredibly well.
