Reverse the Effect

How do you reverse the effects of deliberate mind conditioning? It is a process that is never complete. I am still working on my own. The first step is realizing the extent of the conditioning. Your ego and constructed identity will fight this process to protect the structure it created. You can temper the ego and identity by reminding it that it is not under attack, it is just getting some renovation. At the same time, be aware of what makes you offended and what actions you find yourself justifying. The ego can reveal parts of the structure that were built on false truths that require justifications to keep it together. Put away the justifications and watch how easily that part of the structure falls away. Now you have a clean slate to rebuild with greater awareness than you originally had. Repeat this process everyday in all aspects of your life no matter how big or small. You will only get better at this process so long as you are self reliant with courageous honesty.

Whole

If you want to truly understand who you are, go to a safe place and shed your ego.

When the ego acknowledges that it is in a marriage with the spirit, who is limitless in divine strength and direction, it becomes whole.  They work together like a human and a car.  The spirit is the driver of the ego and lacks the ability to tangibly manifest itself when the ego is not in support or blind to the spirits existence.  The ego lacks purpose when it denies the spirit, causing it to fill self-inflicted voids with desires which stem from fear and emptiness.  An ego without spirit has no choice, but only responds to triggers with fear based responses.  Both the path of acknowledgement and the path of denial have perpetual/exponential results.  Which path are you on?

Till death do us part…

There is a relationship between spirit and ego. They are partners who need to be nourished by the other. We are the result of that relationship and it is the single most important relationship we will ever have. The state of all external relationships are dependent on this.

Identity Crisis

We are each other.

Realizing this will give us great power in understanding and redirecting our egos according to a bigger picture rather than our individual selves.  Sometimes our ego (as a result of our understanding of our identity) will want to win so badly to benefit itself, that everyone ends up losing.  This happens because we attach our ego to ideas that shape our understanding of who we are.  For example, had my ego believed I was an American citizen, Christian, graduate, middle class, member of whatever political party, I would not be permitting myself to travel through empathy as I do now.  I may empathize strongly within the confinements of what agrees with my identity, but to freely travel elsewhere would destroy who I thought I was.

Lose to win.

After realizing that our identity is infinite and should never be confined, our egos will become more beneficial and less defensive.  Your ego is my ego and mine is yours.  I can feel what I feed to your ego as you can feel what you feed to mine.  We become aware of where we are going instead of being victim to reacting to each others defenses.  When this is not happening mutually we may choose to lose in order to win because our reactions are not determined by defending something vulnerable.  An infinite identity has nothing to defend, it can only expand.  The art of losing to win is simple.  It only requires the awareness of identity and the situational process instead of the current state.  When facing an ego with a confined identity who displays emotional responses and demands, one can choose to feed whatever it is their ego is demanding.  This will trigger a success response in that ego and it will do two things at that point; lower its defenses and ask or demand for more.  This is where you allow their ego to overfeed itself while its defenses are down, which enables it for realization.  There is a magical tiny window of opportunity when an ego questions itself after overfeeding.  It will have a moment of inclination to dislike itself.  At this point you must be crafty in how you package your delivery because it will go far into their identity that they were protecting.  This is not something to do without nobleness and humility.  The end result should be love and understanding.  The point is to free each other from our identity crisis.
