Let’s consider the Signs of Ego and the Stages of Dissolving Ego for a minute.
As humans, we are only busying ourselves when we “try” to let go of things. Doesn’t it feel better to just own the knowing that it is more productive to simply love and accept what is and what will be?
Instead of trying to identify or bury what is perceived as a problem, quiet your mind and consider setting the intention to experience it. When you are off-track and focusing on your conscious awareness of an experience which has manifested, recognize that it is not a true part of you. Instead, acknowledge it as an expression of your soul.
Our awareness is able to become blind to thought. A conscious thought can arise as an attempt to get ego to form a projection onto something, but if you take a few moments to observe what is happening (and just allow it to be) rather than to automatically allow random thought to arise, your thought will have time to surface as Soul thought rather than a typical egoic thought projection.
