I’m not highly educated, meaning I’ve never been to college, and I’ve always felt somewhat bad about this. Truth be told, I had a hard time just graduating from high school, but as of late, I’ve begun to allow this fact to roll off my back a bit more. I always feel as if I need to cover up the fact that I’ve not been educated beyond the required 12 grades. Laughing…as if I can hide it. My words and actions may have something to do with giving me away. I’ve always felt a small resentment about this making me feel as if I am less than most people because I don’t have a college education. But now, with this blog, I’ve forced myself to get real with a lot of things and it starts here.
I may not have a masters in anything, but as a lifelong learner and one that desires to learn everything I can, I now consider myself an okay person. I’m no longer measuring myself to anyone with an education, and if on occasions, or more, I miss a comma or use a word incorrectly…oh well. You’ll have to get over it and just accept me for who I am.
I’m here to get you to look at your ego, and really get real, seeing things for what they are not hiding behind that ego anymore. So, if I say something that ends up pissing you off, I may have to remind you that this reaction could indeed be coming from the ego, reacting rather than responding. I have a saying taped to my computer that says, “while the truth may set you free, it probably will piss you off first”. I don’t know who the author of that quote is and wished I did. It really is so very true.
I have worked a long time to move this ego of mine out of the way and I really command performances from my higher self or what I like to call the spiritual self and this also includes my heart and my mind as well. If every individual person could get passed the ego, we would all be living a life of luxury within happiness and joy. But, as it stands right now, there are many, myself included, as I still find myself slipping every now and again. Okay, a lot more than I care to think, after all I am human. I’d like to think, though, that I’ve made huge progress bringing in the spiritual self to manage more of my life than that ego is used to. But, at times, I do revert back to my old ways, and for now I will continue on, trudging forward into the land of forcing myself to really look at all angles, not just the one that may be in front of me.
At this point I want to say, “thank you for being here“. My hope is to deliver you some content that really makes you think and ultimately allow you to change a bit of yourself that wants to change as I have, to lead a life ego free, where everyone can be who or whom (which ever word fits) they are with no judgement as to what they are doing or saying or what they may believe or not.
I see a world that looks at things from all angles and sees what may transpire from any individual, as indeed just fine.
