“The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered, ‘Man… because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.'” ~ The Dalai Lama
“Nobody sees anybody truly but all through the flaws of their own egos. That is the way we all see …each other in life. Vanity, fear, desire, and competition– all such distortions within our own egos– condition our vision of those in relation to us. Add to those distortions to our own egos the corresponding distortions in the egos of others, and you see how cloudy the glass must become through which we look at each other. That’s how it is in all living relationships except when there is that rare case of two people who love intensely enough to burn through all those layers of opacity and see each other’s naked hearts.” ~ Tennessee Williams
“The ego relies on the familiar. It is reluctant to experience the unknown, which is the very essence of life.” ~ Deepak Chopra
“A lot of things are inherent in life -change, birth, death, aging, illness, accidents, calamities, and losses of all kinds- but these events don’t have to be the cause of ongoing suffering. Yes, these events cause grief and sadness, but grief and sadness pass, like everything else, and are replaced with other experiences. The ego, however, clings to negative thoughts and feelings and, as a result, magnifies, intensifies, and sustains those emotions while the ego overlooks the subtle feelings of joy, gratitude, excitement, adventure, love, and peace that come from Essence. If we dwelt on these positive states as much as we generally dwell on our negative thoughts and painful emotions, our lives would be transformed.” ~ Gina Lake
Let go of the hold your ego has on your life and start living from your higher self.
When you find yourself in a place of judgment, resentment, criticism, blame, and even shame you have given your power away, and are not living from your higher self. Basically, your ego has taken over.
Your higher self does not see the flaws in others, only their innocence. Your higher self can see everyone is doing the best that they can given their level of awareness at the time.
Your higher self knows other people’s judgments about you come from their egos and know not to take it personally.
Your ego would like to think everything is about them, that the world revolves around them and they are separate.
Your higher self loves unconditionally. Your ego places all kinds of restrictions and conditions on love.
Your higher self can see adversity as an opportunity for personal growth. You ego only sees itself as a victim.
Your higher self can see others as a mirror, reflecting back the aspects of themselves they are not willing to embrace or acknowledge. Your ego only sees the perceived flaws in others, there is no mirror.
Your higher self can let things be easy, without struggle. Your ego survives on creating struggle in your life.
Your higher self knows to speak your truth is to find peace and heal. Your ego needs to lie to protect itself from the judgment of other egos.
Your higher self can listen to your heart and find the answers within. Your ego uses fear and self limiting beliefs for the answers.
Your higher self wants to be of service to others. Your ego only acts from a selfish and self serving place.
Your higher self knows your history does not have to become your destiny and healing is needed. Your ego creates your future from your history wanting to keep the familiar no matter how painful.
Your higher self knows you are worthy of a healthy, happy and abundant life. Your ego wants to sabotage your health, your happiness and your abundance.
Living from your higher self is to become Responsibly Healthy, making choices and decisions that promote your overall health, happiness and well being.
Start living from your higher self, heal your life and experience the peace and joy that is available from this place within.Click here to schedule your free call with Gina.
