Our ego attempts to reconcile our experience with our perceived reality as a means of dealing with uncertainty. Yet, our ego is not the only voice we hear. We have another voice that competes for our attention. It is the still small voice of our higher self. The goal is not to reject one over the other. Rather, we must learn to give air to both voices, acknowledge them and seek understanding. Opening ourselves to this inner struggle is the key to birthing new levels of awareness.
“Keep in mind when you are tempted and become distracted that you are learning. Give yourself the gift of compassion. Give yourself a sense of grace.” - Vincent Cole
