The Bastard Child of Ego and Logic

I find it comical that as people develop in consciousness, the Ego seems to grow in strength along side. Think about it, the first rung on the evolutionary ladder is when we believe information leads to transformation. And at some level it does, but it’s the mind who is more in love with measurable, objective data than the Soul. So really the Ego is leading the parade for “consciousness exploration”. More knowledge = more power. (grunt, grunt grunt)

The Soul perceives life experiences as just simply life experiencing itself. It doesn’t rush it, nor will it say “this isn’t working” if not quantifiable. Nor will it lose its cool if the pace seems slow or off track. I bet Logic is having an affair with the Ego…how else can you explain it’s lust for “proof” and tangible systems. Actually, now that I think of it, I’m starting to think Logic and Ego had a bastard child named Judgment.

It’s my understanding that the Soul, in its infinite wisdom, already knows all the possible end game scenarios, and is just patiently awaiting as Ego figures out he’s not controlling the Universe as originally perceived. But can sit back and enJoy the process with less stress if he releases into the flow a little more. Not controlling the game… but the player.  Can you see it? Like old lovers reuniting, Soul and Ego come to know one another as friends. This time, working on the same team. In-Power.

What happened to that bastard, you wonder? He, too, evolved. Ya see, that’s what happens organically. You evolve others as you evolve yourSelf. He took on a new identity called understanding…and as for logic, well it acted as only it can. Seeing the reasonable thing to do was LET GO & move on. And they all lived happily ever after.

The End (Energy. Never. Dies.)

The original title for this piece was “Evolving Consciousness”. My ego likes the heading I went with better. LOL. Kindly entertain my friend, the ego, if you agree and let us know what you think by responding to this post.

    Shawna,
    I couldn’t agree with you more! Wouldn’t this be the most divine relationship?? The Soul is who we are and the mind, well…it’s the job of the mind (logic) to think that’s who we are. So, a disciplined ego Possibly?
    LOVE the way you think!

    Interesting perspective. I love the picture you paint of the ego evolving and being “friends” once again with the soul. I believe the ego is really just a construct…a belief that there is separation, when in reality, there is none.

    Thanks for a great post.
