The ego grasps identity, needs approval, achievement, a sense of superiority.
.
Mindfulness is about letting go, bringing perspective to desires.
.
The ego is rigid and narrow, mindful flexible and expansive.
.
The ego is created, mindful just is.
.
The ego feels isolated, better or worse not equal, the mindful totally connected to one another and things.
.
The ego always needs, the mindful, fulfilled with life exactly like it is.
.
The ego judges, the mindful accepts.
.
The ego avoids, the mindful stays even when vulnerable.
.
The ego has goals, the mindful a journey.
.
The ego restricts growth, the mindful unlimited opportunity.
.
The ego feels unworthy, the mindful complete.
.
The ego races, the mindful enjoys, slows.
.
The ego affiliates with anger, hate, resentment, the mindful has perspective and balance when expressing emotions.
.
The ego is lonely, the mindful at peace.
.
The ego is sad, the mindful happy.
