One of the ways in which the ego thought system can really grab our attention is the impulse to show off and be clever. I know a lot about that. I used to look for ways to let everybody know how clever I was in order to get appreciation, attention and recognition. It’s a great way to feed the ego!
As I continued to deepen my spiritual practice and heal the ego habits and attachments I realized that showing off has no value for me anymore. Anytime I feed the ego it makes me feel less alive, less enthusiastic, less fulfilled and less prosperous. There’s always a sense of regret afterwards. That’s when self-forgiveness becomes the best choice. I intend to choose love instead of showing off.
I enjoy supporting people in shining – which is different than showing off. I love that about my Masterful Living Course – I love being able to support so many people in REALLY shining and sharing their loving heart. It lifts my heart AND it brings benefit to everyone in the class.
This shift I’m talking about is from seeking to be clever to being the clear heart of Love that is your true nature.
Where in your life are you seeking to be clever? To get attention? Maybe it’s even pity you seek. Look for it and see if you can let that need to be recognized be healed. When you love and appreciate yourself you won’t need to get the affirmation from the outside. Instead you can appreciate others, remembering that you’re One with them and when one shines, all are lifted.
Your pure motivation brings so much benefit. Make the shift and give others a lift!
