The following is taken from a portion of my book, “Everything I Thought I Was & What I Came to Be.” This topic was surrounding the thoughts I was having of myself. As I wrote in my journal for council, I was finding where these false impressions of myself were coming from.
My journal played the role of councillor for many of my entries. Rather bending someone else’s ear for help, I wanted to really dig deep to find myself and connect with my spiritual truth. Here, I was identifying the ego as the source for many of my downgrading thoughts toward myself. Rather than allowing myself to believe they were true, I was learning that they did not reflect who and what I truly am, as spiritual being.
“The feelings of inadequacy, depression and frustration toward oneself are illusions brought up by the ego. The ego gains momentum when you give these feelings energy. Typically they arise from not accepting oneself as they are. One must see beyond the sight the ego provides for them and understand their divine truth beyond those illusions.”
