My Best Teacher

My ego is an incredibly helpful teacher... the feelings of tightness and seriousness found in my disappointment, anger, frustration, worry, judgment, inadequacy, regret, depression, righteousness, fear (the list is endless), tell me that I'm currently hanging onto some story about myself or the world that is limiting my perspective, even though I may have no idea what that internal story is.

 

And so my ego isn't ever telling me any truth about who I am or what I am or what's right or wrong... it's only ever a very helpful barometer (my internal guru and constant companion) that indicates my internal weather in the moment... am I chronically serious and closed and further away from the experience of potential truth, or am I lightheartedly clear and open and closer to the experience of potential truth?

 

And I don't have to do anything with my internal weather... I don't have to act out on it or change it or figure it out... just the awareness that my teacher is only telling me "where I am" (instead of "who I am" or "what's going on") is already incredibly helpful. Now... if I'll only listen. πŸ˜‰
