Our Egos Are Triggered
“The practice for me is the ability to watch, to witness, to notice.” - Lola WrightI once led a series at the Bodhi Center centered around the beautiful book Stillness Speaks, by Eckhart Tolle. Today, I’m bringing you a talk I gave inspired by chapter two, The Egoic Self. When I am seduced by the ego in stressful situations, I am flooded by negative thoughts. I’ve had to learn self-awareness and how to recognize what messages are coming from my ego.This week on Find Your Fierce & Loving, we’re taking a step back and looking and how our ego minds affect our lives. So much on social media works to keep us in a reactive state that feeds our ego identity. Instead of giving in to it, let’s develop our practice and learn how to love our ego.(01:48) - The ego mind(10:01) - Gaining awareness(17:52) - Relationship with your egoDo you want to unleash your inherent love and goodness, liberate yourself, and free humanity from the oppressive systems and structures we have created?
