Our egos are always on the look-out for anything that reduces it. Our ego has many ego defenses to repair any situation that makes it less than. Our egos are focused on self-preservation much more than being right or wrong, true or false. One of the most powerful ego-repair tools is anger which can cause a momentarily big energetic ego bust.
When we no longer ‘defend’ ego-actions (3D form), we transition out of being with form (mental ego self-image). Here’s the irony; by being less (in ego perception) we are de facto expanding and making space for our true power (beyond form) to manifest becoming more. What is perceived as weakness of our ego is in fact our foundation of strength. Ancient wisdom teaches us: spiritual truth is often opposed to the values of present day cultural values and the unconsciousness it creates. And how that applies to now!
