To your Ego you are blind
But I see it clear and bright
Too many times I have seen it
Too many times, I have healed myself from it.
Too many times, I have allowed myself to be triggered by it.
Countless times I have avoided it.
Many times I have faced it.
I have worked on myself not to feel this way.
I am shocked to realise that I, too, have an Ego, not the arrogant kind, but the type that gets hurt.
To my Ego, I see, I adjust and change.
I have far to go.
Not perfect at all.
But I see my faults; I do.
If only your ways did not trigger me.
If only I could be stable, untouched, undisturbed and peaceful.
Why do I let your ways, your Ego disturb me so?
I have an Ego, too, not the arrogant type, but the kind that gets hurt and quietly says No!
The wise spiritual lesson is to be unmoved by praise or defamation. To be neutral. To shine clean and bright and only share love and light. Neither Ego has a place in my life.
I need to do much inner work so that my internal response is neutral, and I still shine the light of spiritual love.
