Dear EGO

Dear EGO,

Let me tell you something! You are not in charge of this body. You have never had our best interest at heart and your selfish ways concern me.

Did you really think I wouldn’t notice? Damn right! I found the receipts and brought back all the crap you thought would afford you happiness. You’ve got it all wrong EGO! When will you learn…….we are not this body, we are not what people think of us, we are not the things we accumulate and we are not separate from our SOURCE.

UGH….I really wish you’d stop trying to take control of the steering wheel. You ain’t got no license! Well….maybe a license to kill because following your lead is surely a death sentence.

I know you’re pissed that I decided against drinking that glass of wine the other night but you and I both know that your intentions were all wrong. Hell….it wasn’t even my problem…it was yours! Heck…I was all good. You are the one that always feels this need to take control and when things don’t go your way you get all bent out of shape.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again….if we are going to live together you need to stay in your lane. Your lane? Uh..yeah! You’re on early retirement. I’m wide awake and aware of your sneaky ways.

Aren’t you tired? You’ve been working full time….and overtime hours the moment I came into this world. So do us both a favor and be STILL. I send nothing but love your way and assure you our SOURCE and I will be just fine. If I must address this issue again…..I’ll MEDITATE you back into STILLNESS. This is myTRUTHmyCLARITY….. :0)

Sincerely,

The AWARENESS within (my SOUL)

Humility vs. EGO

Dear ABU DHABI,

You have exercised my patience, flexibility and tolerance. For that I say thank you.

You have stretched my thinking beyond what I know to be true. For that I say thank you.

You have provided me with an abundance of time with myself. For that I say thank you.

You have brought me closer to my source. For that I say thank you.

You have filled my pockets with a little extra money. For that I say thank you.

You have reminded me of what’s most important in this world. For that I say thank you.

You’ve revealed my ego driven habits. For that I say thank you.

You have eliminated many of the distractions that kept me from evolving. For that I say thank you.

You have provided me with a new global lens in which I now view the world. For that I say thank you.

You have forced me to practice the act of surrendering. For that I say thank you.

You have reminded me of existing inequalities around the world. For that I say thank you.

You have reminded me of how fortunate I am to be an American. For that I say thank you.

Your location has afforded me unforgettable travel experiences. For that I say thank you.

As I lay here almost two years later pondering my return home, I feel pretty dang good. This has been the biggest challenge….well opportunity of my life. For that I say thank you.

I am an even better person than I was upon my arrival July 2012. For that I say thank you.

Sincerely,

A man who has been exercising HUMILITY since his arrival and has OFFICIALLY retired his EGO.
