Question for Source
Hello. I have been studying lately about the ego. I know. Yes. I have an ego. Believe it or not, all y’all have an ego. And I’ve questioned Source about why we have an ego because I’m always trying to tell it to be quiet. But we have an ego for many different reasons.
Initially, it kept us safe. Our ego would warn us when a saber tooth tiger was coming, or warn us when there was another tribe trying to take over our space by the creek or warn us if there was a herd of animals that we could then hunt and use as food and clothing, and things like that. And as we, as humans, have evolved, our ego has evolved as well. In many cases, the Galactic, the Cosmic, or whoever, say that our ego still keeps us safe. Our ego warns us if there’s danger in an area. We have a little fifth sense that comes up and warns us to leave that area.
Our ego also helps us look both ways before crossing the street and not touch the hot pan. But, it’s really more than that. And now, I believe our ego is a part of our teaching ability. Our teacher is our ego because our ego loves to keep us safe and loves to keep us the same because safe equals the same. Right?
So we are okay in a world right now of total and complete transformation. So in many cases, our ego is running rampant. It’s like, wait, wait, don’t go there. Don’t do that. Don’t do this. It’s because it wants to keep us safe, and it doesn’t feel like there’s very much that is safe in the world right now. But ultimately, it is safe.
Deus Ex Machina
It’s just the ego that wants you to feel like it’s not safe, so then the ego can come in and rescue you. In my old theater days, they called that the deus ex machina, where, when the humans got into trouble, the Gods swept in and saved the day—the deus ex machina.
New and Different
Well, nowadays, you are your own deus ex machina. You are your own illuminated self, and you have the capability to keep those instinctive reactions to something that is new and different in check. Because that’s really all it is, it is something that is new and different.
And you know that sometimes something new or different, you automatically fear. Watch some kids, not all kids, but some kids. They’re served something new on their plate to eat, and at least in my household, it was like they automatically don’t like it in my family. And it’s like, well, did you ever try it? Well, no, but it’s different than what they’re used to eating.
It’s the same thing with bigger situations as well. Something new and different, we respond like the saber tooth tiger. We have evolved in such a way that we are learning to respond differently. We are learning that new and different is not always bad, but it helps elevate us and helps each human evolve to come through with new ideas, new focuses, new creativity.
If all artists painted the same thing when they first started, it would be rather dull. But someone had to break through that new and different wall. That’s what we’re doing right now. We are breaking through an aspect of humanity that said anything different from us was dangerous in the past. And now we’re breaking in, that when we encounter things, people, places that are different from us, we get to take a deep breath, and look at them and realize that we do have one thing in common.
Love Transcends all Ego
And that’s love. And the love transcends all ego. So when you come into a situation where you are questioning who’s standing next to you because they may be going on and on and on about something you disagree with, look at them and realize they’re not a saber tooth tiger. There is no reason for you to be afraid of them.
Key to the Future
There’s no reason for you to attack or kill because they have the same love frequency that you do. And that’s really how our ego is now our teacher. We get the opportunity to see that message and love the part of those other individuals, or peoples, places, or things that are different because that’s the key to the future. Got it? I hope so. Namaste y’all. Namaste.
