Ego Is The External Expression of ‘I AM’

Our Ego is, in my opinion, a severely misunderstood part of ourselves. Popular belief refers to the Ego as a sense of self-importance or self-conceit. In psychoanalysis however, the Ego is the part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing, and represents the personal identity. In short, the Ego is the part of our consciousness that interacts with our external world.

Our Ego is a part of us, just like our legs are a part of us, or our emotional and mental bodies are a part of us. Every part of us has a function. We could not walk without legs. We could not feel without emotions. We could not think without our mental facilities. It would be challenging to interact with our external world without our Egos.

What has gone awry is that somewhere along the way, our Ego stopped being aligned with our core, our ‘I AM’, and just focuses on reacting to our the external environment. The external is much louder and much more tangible than the soft whisperings of our ‘I AM’ – and so it is easier to ignore ‘I AM’ and focus solely and align with the external. So we are influenced by the latest trends, our external circle of friends and family – what they think, how they react to us. Our sense of self is slowly based on material wealth and what we do for a living.

All the while, the whispers of ‘I AM’ gets forgotten, and the link between ‘I AM’ and Ego weakens
– until ultimately all that is left is a personal identity based on the external, and very little else. This superficial expression of the Ego then leads to all sorts of undesirable states, namely envy and jealousy – of seeing someone else have something we do not, of watching someone else succeed, of tearing someone down, for example – and pride, self inflation based on external circumstances and actions, instead of being in complete alignment within.

In my opinion, I do not think that filtering Ego from our lives is the answer. I think that instead of fighting Ego, it would be easier to adjust our own perceptions about what the Ego does, and adjust our own relationship with our Egos.

Allow Ego to be the External Expression of ‘I AM’ – our Divine Selves.

In the very loud external world, which is getting louder with the proliferation of social media, it takes discipline to quiet ourselves and go within to embrace and embody our ‘I AM’ selves :

  1. It is best to establish a practise of meditation to by intent go within and connect with our Divine Essence, and soak up our true resonance.
  2. Then align our emotional, mental and ego selves with ‘I AM’, allowing the energy of ‘I AM’ to imbue all these difference bodies

The more this is practised, the more it becomes an automatic process of our daily lives. So when we go about our days, we will always be fully aligned with our ‘I AM’ selves. This alignment and strong relationship with ‘I AM’ will then influence our Ego selves to express our ‘I
AM’ resonance. Whether it is what we say or do or dress, our personal identity carry the resonance of our ‘I AM’. Then, everything that is in resonance with ‘I AM’ will be attracted to us, and everything that is in dissonance will fall away.

Finally – peace.

It all starts from within.

Allow Ego to be the External Expression of ‘I AM’.
