On including your "ego" in your unconditional love:

Ron Alexander Still demonizing our poor innocent ego 😥. When you learn to love unconditionally Lee? You are hating a part of your self.

Ron Alexander When you write that it is like your enemy, you don't sound like you "love" your ego

Lee Bwao My ego is like a big bully. When you push back you realize it was mostly smoke and mirrors. Nothing to be scared of or dislike.

Heather Pendergast lee, love, the ego is an aspect of divine love. Only the ego itself experiences itself as seperate from divine love~this is the only way one could judge the ego, is if the ego is being seen by the ego. Unconditional love doesnt have any position about the ego except that it loves it, and receives it as it is. The ego is the disowned aspect of the self, longing so intensely to be loved, that it is actually doing everything it can~manipulating, bullying, screaming, testing, pulling your attention away...all just so you will stop what youre doing and receive it. But first, you cant be the spiritual being you know you are and pretend to love the ego when in fact, you are demonizing it. this is a hard step, love. And youre not alone in it. We all go through the stage where we demonize the ego. Because were identified with it. Im not judging you. This is part of the journey. Only the ego "pushes back" ego isnt "smoke and mirrors" until you love it, all the way through. Slow down, love. Receive the love on offer...

Heather Pendergast What is the "??" at the end of your response? Is there something i can clarify?

Heather Pendergast this interjection of mine wasnt invited, so my sense is, it hurts to some degree to receive it, even alittle. And that was not the intention. You dont need to appear as though you are spiritual, loving and wise for anyone, Lee. this is your inner child feeling worthless and frustrated and unseen, playing the role of "spiritual wise one" because this is the role that relieves it of some of the feelings of having failed. Im speaking to this because i identified with being the "wise one" for many years. It felt "jacked up" and i was always secrely defending my position, anything to keep the role of "wise one" running. But when you give yourself permission to feel all the anxiety, pain and fear which holds this "wise one" role together, then the spiritual work really begins.

Lee Bwao Section 12. What is the Ego?

The ego is idolatry; the sign of limited and separated self, born in a body, doomed to suffer and to end its life in death. It is the "will" that sees the Will of God as enemy, and takes a form in which it is denied. The e
go is the "proof" that strength is weak and love is fearful, life is really death, and what opposes God alone is true.

The ego is insane. In fear it stands beyond the Everywhere, apart from All, in separation from the Infinite. In its insanity it thinks it has become a victor over God Himself. And in its terrible autonomy it "sees" the Will of God has been destroyed. It dreams of punishment, and trembles at the figures in its dreams; its enemies, who seek to murder it before it can ensure its safety by attacking them.

The Son of God is egoless. What can he know of madness and the death of God, when he abides in Him? What can he know of sorrow and of suffering, when he lives in eternal joy? What can he know of fear and punishment, of sin and guilt, of hatred and attack, when all there is surrounding him is everlasting peace, forever conflict-free and undisturbed, in deepest silence and tranquility?

To know reality is not to see the ego and its thoughts, its works, its acts, its laws and its beliefs, its dreams, its hopes, its plans for its salvation, and the cost belief in it entails. In suffering, the price for faith in it is so immense that crucifixion of the Son of God is offered daily at its darkened shrine, and blood must flow before the altar where its sickly followers prepare to die.

Yet will one lily of forgiveness change the darkness into light; the altar to illusions to the shrine of Life Itself. And peace will be restored forever to the holy minds which God created as His Son, His dwelling place, His joy, His love, completely His, completely one with Him.

Ron Alexander I have told you Lee that is Helen's definitiion. Freud invented the concept, and he called it the "conscious connection between the id and the superego." As long as we are in the body, we need it, Unless we can be completetly supported in a monastery, an ashram and a prison.

Ron Alexander Helen was the channel for ACIM, she was in real life a psychologist and some her channeling was very good.

Lee Bwao I agree. But I have read and I also agree that we get a provisional ego.
