3 The Ego Versus the Soul

If you want to understand your life purpose and live a healthy, fulfilled life, it is essential to bring your ego under control. The Ego is the portion of yourself that perceives yourself as separated from the rest of the world (duality).

In essence, we all have two aspects of ourselves to contend with – the Higher Self and the Lower Self.

The lower Self or ego, is to do with the world of appearances, rather than true reality.  It is the mask we wear, the facade we create, the image we wish to project.  It is that changing aspect of us, which hides behind the story we create, but it is an illusion.

Hiding behind the illusion and all of the armouring is the real you – the quiet voice of the soul.

The higher Self is formless and cannot be seen or touched.  It is that deeper part of you, which remains unchanged from the day you were born until the day you die, known as the soul, spirit or authentic essence of YOU.

You will only understand your true nature once you strip yourself of ego and life a soulful existence. You can build a better relationship with your soul through stillness, meditation, spending time in nature, journal writing, being open-hearted and authentic, and doing more things that you love.

Understand the qualities of the Soul and the qualities of the Ego and learn how to distinguish between the loud voice of the Ego, which blames, condemns, judges and criticises and the quiet voice of the Soul, which only knows unconditional love.

When the ego mind is our master, it becomes a monster and we create suffering as a result but if we begin to recognise the ego at play, it eventually loses its power over us.

After our initial talk on the Ego and the Soul, we will learn the technique of Japa meditation.  This is the silent repetition of a mantra, in order to reduce negative thoughts and raise our vibration.
