Let’s be like Ricky Henderson

*
*
The greatest lead off hitter in the history of baseball and it’s all time base stealer, often spoke in third person.
*
Ricky would lament, “Ricky is a first ballot hall of famer.”
*
He would describe himself in third person frequently.
*
I adopted this technique with my ego.
*
One day someone did something that angered me, I said, you have pissed off my ego.
*
Funny, it detached me from him and I laughed as that negative emotion faded.
*
We create our ego, he/she is not real, a bit actor of sorts.
*
It is more a possession not our core.
*
We can ignore our ego, discount the many offerings, trading in thought for this present moment, empty, aware.
