ego mind

The mind is like a sticky label looking for anything to attach itself to,

The ego is the label gun waiting to shoot the mind to a specific target,

And the Self is the hand that will never squeeze the trigger.

With regards to fire, the alarm saves.

So it is with our inner voice, saving us from those two arsonists called mind and ego.

Thoughts in the mind are like fake warriors, led by a general called ego, on their way to an illusory battle called my life happening at an illusive time called the future.

Avoid the false.

Realize the real.

In every interaction with others, we can choose to engage with the words they speak, with the thoughts formed by their ego-mind, or with the Divine within them.

We always get to choose.
