    What drives your thoughts?

    Does ego drive your thoughts?

    Have you thought about ego and the thoughts you keep? Ego was once deemed a necessary and most critical component anchored within your physical form. There are still many benefits it offers. It served to provide the needed and necessary guideposts for survival in earlier times. So relevant was its purpose and mission that the demise or loss of one’s life would have more readily resulted without its most critical assistance in less secure times.

    Today, however, many live within the parameters of a more secure surrounding. Of course, there are exceptions. During more questionable times, safety must not be taken for granted. For example, make sure you walk on a well-lighted street or pathway to remain safe. Recognize what is both vital and key.

    Ego is a Tool

    When perilous times exist, ego serves you best. Ego will surely have you checking and double-checking what lies ahead. It remains particularly valuable during these times. Ego and intuition can work together. Yet, the original purpose of ego continues to shift in this current age. The significance to you, its host – the host it supposedly serves, lessens with each passing day. This is so as ego does not hold (as it should) its service as something most sacred.


    Ego’s role did evolve over time. Initially, there were measures created that would hold it accountable to protect the life it was designed to serve. However, it soon transitioned from this role into one that safeguards its own survival. It is the voice you hear oftentimes in your mind’s eye. So you might recognize that ego no longer serves its host as originally intended. Instead, it seeks to maintain its significance to ensure its existence.

    Many times, it will introduce conflicting thoughts. This is done by interjecting adversarial thoughts within you, its host. Often, it serves as the instigator of a conflict. You see, most of the time it is allowed to continue thriving in an unobstructed manner along the pathway of the mind.

    Manage Ego

    Seek to manage it by recognizing negative thoughts and redirecting them to more positive ones. Become the awareness that oversees its incessant banter. Know that you are in control of what plays routinely within the parameters of your mind. Take control by rewriting the script or dialogue. Or choose to completely halt these conversations by slamming a mental door to its trappings. Recognize these negative, and sometimes demeaning thoughts are not your own. Many, unknowingly, allow for the continuation of negative themes to play in their mind’s eye. Themes that run constantly and incessantly through the mind. Ego might suggest actions to take you totally off-course. A direction that could be seen as being out of alignment with your purpose or reason for being. We call that directionless direction.

    Its incessant focus does contribute to stirring you up, causing irritation and brooding. This allows other like-kind dramas to continue running as a loop of thought in the mind. Therefore, its pot of ingredients is continually stirred. We do advise that you become present in recognizing its banter. Present-moment awareness will move you out of such thoughts. When you recognize negative loops of thinking, immediately cut them off. Redirect them. Replace them.

    Survival Mission

    Ego is not evil. We do not infer or imply this to be so. Nevertheless, ego is on a survival mission. Its reason for being has shifted in time. Stay alert and recognize your thoughts. Do not allow one thought to progress to the next without your awareness stepping in to observe the dialog running there. Observe and then without judgment, redirect your thinking as you will more readily thrive when ego is kept in check.

    Recognize that sometimes ego’s influence can be subtle. Watch and become the judgeless observer. Be in control of all that resides within your domain of awareness. Be aware of what drives your thoughts.
