The Voice Of The Ego
Do you know what Self-love is? No, it's not that which
the ego would have you believe ... selfishness ... that's self-love
with the little "s". Self-love with the big "S" is learning to develop your inner strength to
combat your own negativity. I'll tell you something, there
is not one soul alive who does not have some negative
voice inside that prevents them from doing something good.
And you know that voice, too. That's right ... it's 'the
voice of the Ego' and we've all given it more power than it
deserves. It's that voice that comes
up and says "Oh you can't do that", "Oh you'll never do
that", "Oh, this will never happen for you." And you owe
it to yourself to find out where that negativity comes
from, and put it in its place. And the more you develop
your Self-love, the more you cultivate it, the more you
nurture it, the more you allow it to grow, the quieter
that voice of negativity is going to become.
The more you learn to love yourself ... who you really are ...
you start listening to other voices, so it's not just that voice of
negativity that's in your head, because for so many people out there, they
have the one voice which is their wants and the other
voice which is their NEGATIVTY! And the wants are so weak,
and the NEGATIVITY is so strong and as you develop
Self-love, the wants get stronger.
As you feed those wants, those wants start to become
more reasonable: "Yeah! I think I want to go into that
store", "I think I want to take myself out for dinner",
"I think I want to have a better job", I think I want to
have a better relationship." And as you move towards that, that
negativity that says, "NO YOU CAN'T" -- suddenly, you
have this other hand that you are drawing from that says
"yeah but, I didn't think I could have these other things
and I have these," so how strong is that voice of
Ultimately, you are going to find out that it is only
as strong as you allow it to be. But you are the one who
is responsible for combating that voice of negativity.
And in order to do that, you have to recognize it, right
off the hop. And you'll recognize it because that voice
doesn't want you to do anything. It doesn't want you to
change, it doesn't want you to give into what you truly
want. Because as you give into what you truly want, that
negative voice becomes weaker. And that, my friends, is
what it fears the most.
Negativity - fear.
Positivity - love, openness, kindness, appreciation, and
above all, acceptance.
