Letting go of ego…or trying to

The way seems so easy; the path is straight, all my actions bring forward the intended reactions. I am in control.
Then, I slowly emerge out of my daydream only to realize the world I live in, is much different. No more control.
The lessons I need to learn are all there, demanding my full attention.
They also require much work. Not as an afterthought, but rather as a discipline or as a practice of sorts.
Ego, this three-letters word I thought I had a better handle on, is leading me on the wrong path.
Not need to fret all I have to do is getting better at understanding all of its deceiving ways.
The individuals re-appearing at this point in time, in my life, are “tools” helping me to learn more about myself.
This all stems from within; So my inner whisper is shouting loud and clear: “Let Go of Your Ego”.
I am starting to know, to understand at a deeper level that what almost brought me back to the depth of despair, is actually here to help me grow.

Any lessons you are learning lately, dear friends? Care to share?

Sever the chains of the ego.
Set yourself free and witness the bright essence of your inner being.
Discover within your heart the wisdom of a prophet without books, without teachers, and without prudence.
Rumi
Ego and its chains

Rompez les chaînes de l’ego .
Liberez vous et regardez votre essence intérieure lumineuse
Découvrez dans votre cœur la sagesse d’un prophète sans livres, sans professeurs, et sans prudence .
Rumi

La voie semble si facile, le chemin est tout droit et toutes mes actions ont les conséquences que j’ escomptait  .
C’est à ce moment que je sors lentement de ma rêverie, et que je réalise que dans le monde où je vis tout est différent .
Les leçons que j’ai besoin d’apprendre sont toutes là et demandent toute mon attention .
Elles exigent beaucoup de travail; Sans arrière pensée mais plutôt comme une discipline.
L’égo, ce mot de trois lettres que je pensais bien connaitre, me conduit le mauvais chemin.
Ce qu’il me reste à faire est d’essayer de comprendre toutes ses ruses de façon à ne pas me faire pieger.
Ces personnes qui réapparaîssent dans ma vie en ce moment, sont des «outils» m’aidant à mieux me connaitre.
Tout commence par soi-même et mon murmure intérieur est fort et clair: ” Debarrasses toi de ton ego”.
Je commence à connaître et à comprendre à un niveau plus profond, que ce qui a failli m’emmener au bord du désespoir est en fait ici pour m’aider à grandir.

J’aimerais savoir si vous aussi vous êtes en train d’apprendre de nouvelles leçons, cher(e)s ami(e)s

  1. C’est un plaisir de te lire, mais aussi un desarroi de sentir cette souffrance. Des etres chers sont partis et la recherche de soi pour mettre un sens a ces departs est une etape confuse voir difficile. Tu es une battantes et bientot une certaine paix apparaitra de ce tumulte. Comme disait notre cher president Francois Mitterand:” il faut donner le temps au temps”. Bien a toi

  2. I find myself at least recognizing when my ego is rearing its head again… and then I can notice what is happening and let it go again and again. I also notice it in others, and have started to be able to detach judgement and go “well that is just their ego.” Rumi gets it right, every time- just what I need to read and embrace. Thankful for your sharing, Anyes!

  3. I’m learning that it’s okay to be angry and sad and upset and hurt. It’s a difficult lesson to take in, since I’ve spent my life until now learning that those weren’t okay. But I’m learning.
    Ego is a tricky beast. But now your eyes are open to it, and that should make those chains all the easier to break. 🙂

  4. That is an absolutely beautiful post Anyes – and that poem by Rumi just topped it off beautifully. That ego is the ultimate trickster – we just have to keep vigilant 😜
