Quiet Transformation

materialism“Intellectual capital became the ego’s most envied prize. Wisdom was forgotten in favor of intellectual prowess and material accumulation. Thinking and doing became glorified, while the quiet reflective states of being and realization were cast aside and drowned out by the ego.”

– Take Me To Truth: Undoing the Ego

The ego-self is a  mistaken identity. One place we can start looking for the authentic self is in the quiet moments we can reflect about what is within.  Going back to quiet, aloneness, and nature is the beginning of self-fulfillment and permanent happiness.

    Nice thoughts here Raimy-D. I think that I am still in this struggle. I fill my days with “important” things which in the end amount to glorified thinking and doing. This ego is one tough opponent. 🙂

    “going back to quiet, aloneness and nature”
    beautiful
    it’s always the nature bit that stumps me, the nature of what? 😉 Quite often it’s beautiful when the different natures merge 🙂

    Raimy, How is it that you come up with these powerful quotations by authors I have never heard of. Thank you for sharing. Love this. Just did a workshop with Jeff Foster. He speaks a lot about authenticity. You might want to check him out. One thing that stood out was when he said that “just because you are authentic, does not mean you will get everything that you want.” He mentioned Jesus on the cross as someone who became truly authentic. {{{Hugs}}} kozo
