Daily Dose for the Soul

Your ego is the set of beliefs which define you as what you accomplish and accumulate in a material sense. Your ego is solely responsible for the feelings of self doubt and self repudiation that you may carry around. When you attempt to live by the low level standards of your ego, you’re a hostage to that very same ego. Your worth as a person is measured by your acquisitions and accomplishments. If you have less stuff, you’re less valuable, and therefore unworthy of respect from others. If others don’t respect you, and your value depends on how others see you, then its unimaginable for you to have self respect. You become a hostage to this low level ego energy, which has you constantly striving for self respect through others.

Your ego’s belief that you’re separate from everyone, separate from what’s missing in your life, and most egregiously, separate from God, further hampers your ability to live up to the intention of respecting yourself. Ego’s idea of separation fosters your feeling of being in competition with everyone, and evaluating your worth based on how frequently you emerge as a winner. As a hostage to your ego, self-respect is unavailable because you feel judged for your failures. It’s out of this bleak picture, produced by the negative ego, that self rejection emerges. It captures you and makes a hostage of you, never allowing you to play host to that from which you originated.

  2. So much of what our inner soul needs is affirmation of love’s positivity.

      Yes indeed. Get deeper into your inner soul and drill down the things that matter in your life. In simpler words, you need to perform a reality check of your life. It is a kind of mind mapping where you will be listing the things that inspire you, frustrate you, and make you happy or angry. Mind mapping is like designing a logo where you will be composing different elements to form a complete visual identity. But in this case, it is you who will be the subject. An honest analysis of yourself will reflect your temperament and allow you to understand the things that affect your mood.

      Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty and sadness and remains far behind yours. Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words.
