We create “Him/Her”, “I”, “Me”, “Mine”

Just think, the “Ego” we create for identity, experiences our shame.
.
He/She also experiences our need for approval and avoidance of criticism.
.
When we feel shame, guilt or unworthiness, we are thinking.
.
Problems, negativity, panic and fear thrive when we ruminate, grasp our emotional thoughts.
.
.
When the mind is focused and empty, shame, guilt and unworthiness have left the building.
.
So it follows that the mind does not experience shame when focused and empty.
.
.
Seems like a door to relieve suffering for us, no?
.
.

Thought is not the most powerful thing our minds are capable of.
.
The left hemisphere, our cognitive engine has limits, the right hemisphere offers unlimited opportunity.
.
Happiness seems to thrive inside the focused, empty mind.
.
We have a choice who captains our ship!
.
Those 60,000 thoughts generated daily by the “Ego” or staying present, empty, guided by our true self.
.
Not much of a choice really!.
