Mindfulness versus The Ego

.
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.

    Hi Marty, This is perfectly stated. Thank you. May I use this in a blog I write? I am an avid follower of this sight, and I believe, with my whole heart, that it is not only for those of us trying to heal PTSD, but it also heals those, whose PTSD got them into addictive behaviors. Again, thank you……..

    Marty
